Lucky for me that for a recent home tour the wondrous Katharine Peachey captured the hanging planter that I have in my kitchen filled with herbs – perfect for this month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers. I made this planter myself from a vintage jelly mould (see the tutorial here) and it is perfect for a few essential herbs and very accessible for daily cooking. I also love the dash of green it adds to my kitchen (my least favourite room in our flat as I hate the generic units and work top).
I’ve wanted to make a macrame plant hanger for soooo long and this month’s hanging planter theme has pushed me to commit to doing it so watch this space.
I hope you like my DIY jelly mould hanging planter – they are so easy to make. Don’t forget to take a peek at my tutorial. For more hanging planter ideas search the #urbanjunglebloggers hashtag and visit the website, as well as Igor’s blog and Judith’s blog.
Thanks again to Katharine for these beautiful photographs.
Katy, I am in love with your hanging plant…oh well, I am in LOVE with your home in general! Thank you for joining us again!
Too kind, Igor! Thank you, as ever, for the inspiration x
Lovely! I am planning something similar, but for outside. I have a rusty metal colander and rather than chuck it out, I am going to turn it into a hanging basket. I am looking for other old colanders too, as I might make a three tiered one if I can get some more (hoping freecycle will come up trumps).
Ooooh, yes, I have a planted colander in my balcony. I wanted to make it a hanging one but there is nothing to hang it from. Good luck for your hunt x
You’re always full of great ideas:-)
So simple and sooooo effective. Great x
You’re far too kind as well, Tina! I need to get on with a bit a macramé like you did xx
I never would have thought that a jelly mould could make such a lovely hanging planter. And filled with aromatic herbs, it’s just perfect for the kitchen!
Thank you, Sarah. It is perfect for the kitchen and frees up workspace, too x
I love this! So simple and so striking.
Yours are gorgeous, too! X
Great idea and really easy to follow tutorial too…..
I had the opportunity to go through your blog too. Great stuff !!
Thank you so much, Nitasha! That’s made my day x
Oh this is such a perfect DIY hanger for a kitchen, Katy! I know I’ll stroll the French brocantes looking for some vintage jelly molds in a few months 😉 Hilarious to read that hanging planters remind you of the ones outsides pubs 😀 Thank you for joining the Urban Jungle Bloggers again!
Ha ha! That is what instantly comes to mind when I hear hanging planters! I’m obviously far too British 😉 xx
I need this beautiful vintage herb garden swinging about in my kitchen! So lovely Katy x
Thank you, lovely Jeska xx
So pretty, and you make the kitchen look fab, even if it is your least favourite! x
