50 Ways to Style Hanging Plants

/ / DIY, Inspiration, News

We LOVE our hanging plants!

There are so many reasons you might want to keep your plants off the ground – to keep them away from your pets, away from the kids, to save space in an apartment or balcony or just because it looks great!

Adding some verticality to your greenery is a great way to show off your favorite plants especially if it is a dangling plant type.

We did some research and found fifty different ideas for hanging your plants that we thought were fantastic! We included a range of options from less expensive ideas and DIY projects up to complete dream home ideas.
