DIY: Clip Planters

You only need two things for this charming weekend project!

Shares

Gardening, in general, is an affordable hobby. Once you have completed the basics, it is pretty easy to maintain a healthy patch of land. However, one thing that can make the costs pile up are terracotta pots—they can be quick to chip and break causing you to repeatedly buy new ones. 

To help you save a few bucks, we found a project that can help you make your own planters out of old tin cans and clip hangers. The best part? They are adorable for putting on display, too! Check out the complete step-by-step guide below:

What you need:

  • Clean tuna tin cans
  • Wooden hanger clips

How-to:

  • Start by cleaning out your tin cans—make sure all traces of the label and food residue are removed. 
  • Attach clips around the rim of the can. If you want a sturdier finished product, consider using a hot glue down to secure the clips and let dry. 
  • Move your succulent from the pot to your new planter. 

RL Tip: Not a big fan of neutrals and wood finishes? Feel free to paint the clips in your favorite colors before building your planter!
