Hey guys!

Are you ready for another DIY from my bedroom? One necessity for me was plants. Lots of plants. It really uplifts my mood and makes me feel at ease to be around plants. I didn’t want to do anything as permanent as put in shelves (because lord knows I’ll only need to move them a month later) but I also didn’t want to crowd the existing surfaces with plants. So to keep the floor as clear as possible, I created this Leather (pleather) Hanging Planter Sling.

It’s really easy to make and you can totally do this so let’s dive into the tutorial!

(Bonus- You’re going to love the way this Leather Hanging Planter looks!)

Supplies:

Embroidery Floss and Needle

Two square pieces of pleather (leather will damage if any water sits on it, so be sure to go faux)

Cotton Rope

Scissors/Straight Edge/Craft Knife

How To Make It:

Cut out two squares from your pleather fabric.

cut out two pieces of pleather fabric into equal squares

Sew A Knot Through Each Corner.

Stitch All Four Sides Together.

Cut A Slit Just Large Enough To Pass The Rope Through and Stitch Around The Edges.

Cut Off A Shorter Length Of Rope and Tie The Two Overlapping Pieces Together.

This corner of my bedroom is totally giving me life right now. It always makes me smile! And yeah, I ended up changing out the plant. I LOVE the pothos. I have a hard time remembering to open the blinds in the morning and this resilient vine cuts me some slack.

    Very cool! Sometimes I feel like I’m missing some blogger gene for turning things into planters. All I can ever think of are….planters. :). But if people keeping posting tutorials like this it’s bound to sink in sooner or later
