Currently, it is 4:23 AM. In Vava’u, it is 10:23 PM. Darien and I are trying to get our sleeping patterns in line for the night shift hours (6:30 PM to 6:00 AM, ugh), so a night/early morning surfing Pinterest is just what the doctor ordered!

Simply put, I love these planters. They add a lot of personality to gardens/homes, and are such a timeless art piece. BONUS: the plants complete the humanoid appearance by resembling hair! This can be made with porcelain, clay, cob, concrete, etc.

The convenience of using air space while minimizing floor space, love it! There are many different hanging planter designs, but this one has to be one of the best I’ve see floating around the web. The modern clean edges mixed with the natural light wood is exactly the look I am going for.

Matching that modern feel with the light wood, yet taking a different approach with a simple box shape. When I build my own version of this, I will use something other than chain. Air plants and herbs would be great for this, hanging right by a window.

My apologies for essentially drooling over this simple wire planters. Wire is such a useful and versatile material, and planters are prime for its bending and shaping abilities! Don’t forget about the light-weight aspect and the light look they give to a space. We will definitely be making these in the near future.

Light wood is the best wood, honestly. How simple yet sleek is this palet-esque design? Perfect for larger plants, like grasses and ferns. Indoor or outdoor!

This isn’t a DIY, but these can be made relatively easy! Plus, they can be tall or short, depending on your preference. These would look good in any color, but being the design freak I am, I will stick to the neutrals. The green from the plants will POP.

Saving the best for last – a whole wall as a planter. The DIY on this is a lot simpler than it appears; just a box potter with soil, plants, some netting, a material shield, and you’re all set! Moss, small ferns, grasses, and air plants would be ideal for this. Optional: place a light source behind the potter to create a modern glow. Indoor or outdoor, you decide.
