justified myself said all this, now I can tell you about this little project which took no time to do. You'll need galvanized steel chicken wire, 28 gauge steel galvanized wire, some succulents, a pair of metal snip pliers (the ones I used are Wiss) and "coco liner" for the inside of the pockets (all materials are available at +The Home Depot).
I started by cutting a 10" by 10" square (if you are buying your galvanized steel chicken wire with 1/2" squares, you'll have to count 20 squares for the length and 20 for the width) and after this, I bend 3 of the corners toward the inside (just like the image below). To fasten them together, I used a 28 gauge steel galvanize wire which is a soft metal cable and very easy to bend. I later on cut the renaming corner so all I was left with was a steel wire pocket planter. Because I'm using them to plant my succulents, I filled the inside of these pockets with some coco liner. To finish this project I just planted and water my plants.
You can make these pockets as little or as big as you can. It will all depend of the purpose of the planter and the place you will be hanging them. I placed mine on the sliding windows in my balcony. Don't they look great!
|To place these planter on my sliding doors, I used plastic glass suckers with small metal hangers.|
Let me know what you think about this project; as always it gives me an immense pleasure to read your feedback. Have a great weekend!
