DIY Farmhouse Planter - an elegant, simple, rustic yet luxe up-cycle that is easy on time, and easy on the budget!

DIY Farmhouse Planter – an elegant, simple, with equal parts rustic up-cycle that is easy on time, and easy on the budget!   I just happened to luck into a plethora of maramce cord and yarn when some kind soul decided to empty out their craft closet, and a friend of a friend of a friend, thought of me when they saw it.  And I am so glad they did!

The only thing from the materials list that you may not have on hand is macrame cord.  But really, any thick cord / rope will do the trick.  You’ll have a much better time of it also if you use a glue gun – I prefer a heavy duty one that is maybe a bit overkill, but hey – whatever works.  The idea is to use what you have on hand, or what is readily accessible, however, I did link to some products in the materials list to help you out a bit.

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Clean the inside and outside of your can, and dry well.
  2. Unwind your cord enough that you can work with it without getting too tangled,
  3. Trim the end of your cord on a 45 degree angle.  Now, you can singe the end with a flame if you like, but if you use a hot glue gun to secure it, that won’t be necessary.
  4. Glue the end of your cord to the side of the can, right smack near the bottom.  Wrap the corn around the can from that point, gluing as required.
  5. Make sure the entire can is covered with the cord, with no spaces, and trim the end of the cord when you’re done, again on a 45.DIY Farmhouse Planter - an elegant, simple, rustic yet luxe up-cycle that is easy on time, and easy on the budget!
  6. Put a thin layer of gravel in the bottom of your new planter, and then insert a plant pot that fits snugly inside. 
  7. Put potting soil and a plant of your choice into the plastic pot, and adjust accordingly.  You don’t want the plastic pot to have too much room to move inside the planter.

I put a Thanksgiving Cacti in mine ( again, a plant that I got from a friend – seriously gardeners are the most generous people 🙂 )
