    Ikea Hack: Modern Planters

    Summer’s almost here, so it’s the perfect time for this Modern Planter Ikea hack from Brady Bunch Remodel. All you need is a pair of the large (9.5″ diameter base) KARDEMUMMA planters ($20 each) and some liquid nails to put these together. These look just like the expensive tall planters I’ve seen at stylish gardening centers and will save you a ton of cash.

    Via Everything Etsy.

    DIY Plant Holder

    I’ve been seeing this colorful cord plant hangers all over Pinterest. Good news: Urban Outfitters has a how-to for making them on their blog. The knots don’t look too hard, but I may end up consulting the local Boy Scout troupe. Get the instructions here.

    Hang-ups

    Hanging planters are a great option if you want some greenery but don’t want to take up valuable surface area that could be dedicated to things like your junk mail, keys and pocket change … or is that just me? Regardless, right now there are tons of lovely options out there like the above teak planters from Anthropologie ($78 each).

    Or this M.F.E.O Jungalow planter from West Elm, $75.

    Or this more-affordable Ceramic hanging planter made from a vintage mold, $38 from Boulder Design.

    I think this is the best bargain of the bunch - Jute plant hanger with geometric planter, $20 from Classic by Nature.

    Etsy Find: All I Need is the Air that I Breathe

    These succulent / air plant hanging gardens from Kim Fisher Designs are absolutely stunning. They don’t come with plants or sand, so you have to do the arranging yourself. Personally, I wonder how easy it would be to keep anything alive in one of these. But my friend suggested they’d be equally stunning with tiny figurines in them. Not a bad idea.
