We love these little alternatives to a standard pot for a cactus or succulent. The simple balsa wood boxes are a great way of hiding the standard ugly plastic pots and you can make it to fit any size.

Paint or draw on any design you like, we love the scalloped print, made using a cut potato!

We found another lovely short and easy project from the clever folks at A Beautiful Mess. 

With the popularity of hanging plants, and macrame holders, we thought this hanging plant shelf would be another great make. 

You only need a staple gun, thin rope/string and some kind of wooden plate – a circle of wood cut at a local wood store, a top of a stool, a wooden plate or even a chopping board.

This simple tutorial from A Beautiful Mess will guide you through this easy project. The hanging shelf would make a great gift, would work well hung in a pair or trio (at different levels) and if you are adept at macrame – it could be combined!

For the green fingered of us, now is the time to start tidying the garden and getting ready for summer. For those who don’t have an outdoor space, or just like having plants indoors then these hanging planters from Factorytwentyone are perfect.

The simple wooden box with leather strap [ choose from five colours ] will look great hung individually on a small wall, or group together on a larger wall.
