Give Your Hanging Planters a DIY Yarn Wrapped Makeover

Not that plants ever go out of style, but all things green are having a bit of boost in popularity these days.  Air plants, cactus and succulents are especially hot. White hot. A quick glance through Pinterest and you are sure to spot a cluster of hanging glass globes with a wee little plant inside (check out my Hanging Planters Pinterest Board). I too love all things plant crafts and thought I would pop in to add my own spin!

There is no shortage of ready-made hanging planters available at stores.  The fun part is customizing said planters.  Will you stencil them with glass paint, convert them into monsters or in this case wrap it in yarn.  The more embellishment the merrier is what I always say.  Please note affiliate links ahead – purchasing anything through these links helps support this blog and my thrift store habit.

Sometimes you get lucky and score a planter with a fake plant already nestled inside.  That was the case with this example.  Start by adding craft glue where you want to add your yarn wrapping.  Add yarn while the glue is still wet.  You can use hot glue too, but craft glue gives you a little more time for adjustments.
