I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of expensive planters. And to be fair, I have purchased fancy planters before… *ahem* West Elm gets me every time, okay? Usually, I’m on my best behavior, especially when it involves dirt.
Here’s the problem: when you search for a gold planter (and perhaps this is only my experience), you’ll find nothing but expensive cheaply made planters you’ll most likely toss within the same year of purchasing. Don’t give in, especially if you think buying something already made is the easiest route. It’s not.
This DIY is quick and easy. So you have no excuse.
First things first, go to Target. If Target doesn’t have the bowl above or something you like, take a moment, and enjoy being at Target. That’s what I would do.
I purchased these bowls from Target, but alas, I cannot find them on Target’s website. Don’t worry, I got you. I found something similar here, here, and here.
Next up, go to Home Depot. Purchase the length of chain that you would like. I purchased three strands for each length that I wanted.
You’ll also need rings to attach the chain to your bowl. I used three rings for each bowl and one more ring for the chains at the top—so eight rings total. They were silver…I spray painted them gold. There’s always a way, friend.
Okay, last step!
Find yourself a man who is handy (if you are handy, you’re my hero). I asked Stephen if he could drill three holes into each bowl—he did because he’s the best. <3
After the holes are made, slide your rings into the holes in each bowl then attach the chains.
Last step: Attach all three chains to one ring for the top (this part will hang from your wall hangers. Here’s a link to my wall hangers—again gold pray paint did the trick.
You’re done! Just kidding. You’ll need some plants. I purchased two different types of Pothos. I can’t wait for the leaves to drape down! Pothos are easy to take care of and they grow quickly. Pothos are perfect for first time plant owners or hanging planters like these.
