With a long piece of wood, paint, screws, galvanized metal tape, jars, herbs, and potting soil, you can place this hanging herb garden on a kitchen or breakfast nook wall. Create a cool design on the wooden strip with paint and then attach the jars with the galvanized metal tape and screws. Fill the jars with herbs, like in the photo, or succulents or air plants.
An on-trend terrarium is one of the easiest and most low-maintenance ways to bring plants indoors. You can make one with a glass bowl (even a fishbowl will work), potting mix, succulents, and other tiny accents like stones or shells. The best part? You’ll only need to lightly water the succulents about once a week at most.
Designate a nook or corner in your house as your indoor garden—just make sure it’s a spot that gets plenty of light. Here, an industrial metal cart is used to hold potted plants and watering cans. You can do something similar with a bookshelf or small console table.
Make your walls really come alive—show off your potted plants with this fun geometric idea. Create a trellis pattern with thin strips of wood and nails. Here, the plants are secured to the wood strips with DIY leather holders and nails, but you can use pipe clamps, too.
Take an old ladder (or purchase an inexpensive one) to make this tiered indoor garden. On each step, create a shelf with planks of wood. If the ladder rungs are uneven on one side, you’ll have to add another piece of wood to the “shorter” rung to prop up the shelf so it’s straight. Paint the whole ladder, let dry, and then accent with small potted plants.
Place this rustic planter on your dining table or on your kitchen windowsill for a little bit of extra greenery. The planter is made from scrap wood and covered with chalk paint (but you can also use a stain, too). Mason jars filled with soil and herbs are placed in the container—add little signs so you can keep track of which herb is which.
For a little bit of boho flair in your house, these slouchy leather sling planters will do the trick. Buy about a yard (or more, depending on container size and number of plants) and cut out different shapes, like circles or triangles. Attach grommets to the shapes and string and knot rope through them so you can hang from the ceiling. This grouping of hanging plants would look great in the corner of your living room or bedroom.
There’s nothing like fresh herbs to take your cooking to the next level. Hang this piece on your kitchen wall (where there’s enough light) for easy access. Take a piece of recycled wood and attach the potted mason jars with pipe clamps. Label each herb with chalkboard paint and chalk.
If your house is more glamorous than rustic, these succulent planters with gold chain will add to your décor. Take a small wooden container, paint it white, attach gold chain (found at any hardware store) to it, and hang from a wall or ceiling. You can group a bunch together and play with the chain lengths for a layered look.
If you’re in a rental, you can still have a vertical garden and get your security deposit back. Apply a clear removable hook to any wall, then poke a small hole on the side of a plastic plant pot and hang from the hook. Personalize the pots with spray paint to match your kitchen décor.
