DIY Wall Planters


Wall planters are a great way to decorate your home or office, and it’s a project you can do on your own! By making your own wall planter, you’ll be able to customize it to fit the look of your home. Planters can also provide you with many health benefits, and the most important benefit is being able to have fresh air in your home or office.

What you’ll need

You will need the following materials:

  • A planter box that fits your wall space, if you don’t already have one. We recommend using a clay pot (or any other non-porous material) for this project.
  • One set of terracotta pots as large as your planter box, or larger. The size of your pots should be in proportion to the scale of your wall and its surrounding environment. For example, if you are using a large black tray on a white wall in an open loft space, smaller terracottas might be more appropriate than larger ones because they will blend better with the environment around them; however if you were planning on using these same pots in a small living room with dark walls and lots of greenery then perhaps something taller would look better? It really depends on personal preference!

Tools: measuring tape or ruler (to measure spaces), pencil or pen (to mark measurements), yardstick/ruler (for measuring straight lines).


  • Plastic bottles – You can use just about any kind of plastic bottle for this project, as long as it’s clean and free from any liquid or residue. The best types of bottles to use are those that have a wide neck opening, so you have room to add your soil mix.
  • Soil – Get some good potting soil to go inside your planters. You’ll need enough soil to fill the bottles at least halfway full, so make sure you purchase more than what you think will fit in one bottle!
  • Seeds or plants – Pick out some seeds or young plants that grow well in containers (cacti are great!) and place them inside the planters after filling them with soil.


  • Make sure you have a planter and soil in mind before you start.
  • Mark the area where you want your planter to be with a pencil, then use a drill to make holes where you marked.
  • Put the planter in its hole and fill it with soil.
  • Plant seeds or small plants inside of it!

Benefits of having your own wall planter

Wall planters can be a great way to add greenery, color, texture and life to your home. They are also very easy to create yourself (and you don’t need any prior knowledge of woodworking or gardening).

  • Greenery: Plants bring life into the house. They help freshen up a room and make it feel more lively.
  • Color: A wall planter allows you to experiment with different kinds of green plants as well as colorful ones. There are no limits when it comes to what kind of flowers or plants you can put in yours!
  • Texture: Wall planters provide an interesting element that contrasts with smooth walls in a room; they add visual interest without being too jarring on the eyes because they’re smaller than other pieces like paintings might be (like large paintings hanging above beds). This makes them perfect for decorating spaces where there isn’t much room left over after installing furniture pieces underneath windowsills where sun shines through during daytime hours making rooms look brighter than usual–but still wanting something else besides curtains hanging down from window frames all day long when closed tightly shut during night hours while sleeping so nobody sees inside either; which means leaving them open 24/7 instead could lead someone walking past outside seeing into bedroom windowsill area at night time hours would cause privacy concerns not knowing what exactly was happening inside–which leads us back again on topic about needing good lighting throughout entire home plus having sufficient electricity available near each outlet point along entire length length length long side surface area wall line railing railings rails along ceiling level roofs top apexes top points crowns tops crowns tops crowns tops crowns

Planters can be a great addition to any home or office.

There are a lot of benefits to having planters in your home. First and foremost, you can customize them to meet your needs. Do you have an empty corner of your living room that could use some green life? Then why not throw in a potted plant or two? Not only does it add color and vibrance, but it will also improve the quality of air around you by providing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide—so go ahead!

Planting something is also great for mental health because it gives people something productive to do with their time while they’re doing something relaxing at home. It provides a sense of accomplishment when the harvest comes back later on down the road (or even earlier if you’re growing herbs).


As you can see installing your own wall planter is not only easy but it has a lot of great benefits. Creating a vertical garden around the house is a fun and unique way to decorate your home, while creating some greenery to help with air quality as well.
