Easy to Make Wall Decor: Two Different Options!
I was perusing Pinterest the other day when I saw this beautiful modern plant hanger. It was the perfect wall decor addition to our master bedroom.
Wall decor is one of my favorite projects to DIY.
The book wall I made a few months back is another example.
Is it just me, or does it seem that wall art tends to usually be on the pricy side? That’s another reason making it myself is so appealing. When I clicked of the wall planter I saw on Pinterest it took me to Etsy where it was selling for $90! I took that as a challenge to see how much it would cost me to make my own.
While I was at it, I also wanted to try my hands at the wooden hanging shelves that are all the rage.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED & HOW TO MAKE THE PLANT HANGER:
- One 1’x4’x10′ select pine board (ours is from Home Depot) This is essentially a pine board already treated. Purchasing it this way eliminats the need to stain it.
- Wood glue
- Air nailer or finishing nails & hammer
- hooks to attach to wall
- Hooks to attach pots
- Jute twine
- Planters (or bowls if you’re using fake plants like me)
- Plants of your choice (I found mine on sale at Michaels)
We made our plant hanger 23″x13″, but this can vary depending on the size of your pots. I’d suggest purchasing your pots first, setting them out and deciding spacing and basing your measurements off that.
To give the frame strength make sure to glue as well as nail the boards together. Our plant holder ended up weighing about ten pounds when it was completed.
To make the corners cut the pieces at 45 degree angles.
If you don’t have the option to cut at home, you can have most lumber stores cut to size. Most likely they won’t cut the edges at an angle, but you can still use flat edges to made the sides, they just won’t have that picture frame cut.
PUTTING TOGETHER THE PLANTERS
This part was fun, thought the macrame was a bit challenging at first. You have to play around with this a bit to get the right size for your specific planter or bowl. I made the first two incorrectly. They were way too small.

A piece of board with a few holes, string, and a circular hanger is all you need to make one of these!
