Hanging Planters


These simple DIY Hanging Planters can make a great addition to your house décor. You can customize them how you like, so you can change the size, color or even style to fit your home.


  1. Measure and cut your wood After deciding on the size, cut each hanging planter into three equal pieces. We did one around 5 inches and slightly larger for the other one. Play around with the mitered edges until you are satisfied with the angle. Then use a miter saw to create the angle cuts where the corners met as well as the ends.

  2. Sand and attach pieces together with screws.

    Don't forget to sand down the wood pieces to smooth out any sharp edges. Make sure to clean it off with a tack cloth.

  3. Torch the wood with TS3500. We gave the planter a nice, beautiful finish using the Bernzomatic TS3500.
