We're always looking for fun ways to bring plants into the home. Today, we have this versatile Peg Board Hanging Planter which allows you to add as many plants as you want! Here's how… 

You'll need:
metal planters
parachute cord
peg board (cut to size of your choice)
gold spray paint
– drill & drill bit

Here's how: 
1. Hang your peg board in the area you want your planters to go.
2. Spray paint the pegs and let dry for 30 minutes.
3. With a pencil, mark where you want to drill holes in your planter cups. You'll need two on each side (4 holes per planter), about 1-2 inches apart.
3. Drill holes with drill bit.
4. String parachute cord through all four holes to make two loops, from which the planter will hang.
5. Secure ends of the cord with a knot. We decided to stagger the lengths of the of the cord, but you can also easily adjust where you tie the knot to have them all hang at the same length.
6. Insert your plants, and hang on the pegs in the peg board!

  1. The last time I used peg board, I had to use wood strips between the peg board and the wall. The hooks needed a little empty space past the peg board.
