If you have small children or pets, but also love house plants, you may be looking for a way to keep your plants out of harms reach. Look no further, because I’m here to help! With a few simple solutions, you can have both; beautiful house plants, and safe spaces for your children and pets.
Macrame has had a major comeback in the last few years, but the macrame of today is not the one you remember in your grandma’s sunroom. Today’s macrame comes in a variety of creative designs, and can often be custom ordered to fit your space. Reach out to a local maker in your area to have the perfect macrame piece created for your space. I like grouping multiple hangers at different heights to add visual interest as seen below.
LittleLoveHome is another local option for fiber based hanging planters! Use my code Heather15 for 15% off your order! See a hanging planter styled in my home at the top right of the image below.
Wall plants are another fun way to add plants to your home in a unique way. They are a little harder to find, so I’ve included two options from some small shops that I’ve worked with in the past.
The wall planters above (as well as the larger lower planters) are all from a Canadian small shop Common House Studio. Hand painted and made of lightweight fiberglass; you don’t need to worry about them crashing down as they are held securely in place using screws and anchors. OurBarnesYard readers also receive 10% off their order using code “ourbarnesyard”.
The wall planters pictured here are from other small shop based in Israel. Loop Living creates one of a kind ceiling and wall planters all by hand. Stunningly designed and easy to install, these wall planters will add style and function to any plant lover’s space.
One of my most popular projects to date, this ikea hack allows you to create a large scale living wall on a budget. I love the visual interest this adds to this space, and the bonus is that plants stay out of reach and free from damage.

Another fun way to add hanging plants to your home is with a beaded plant hanger. Easily DIYed using wooden beads, they can be easily customized to fit your place and your planter. Again, I like hanging them in staggered heights for more visual interest.
This DIY seen in the upper left hand side of this shot uses two wooden bowls, gold eye hooks, and chair to create a one of a kind hanging planter. To keep this project on budget, use thrifted wooden bowls! You could even skip the eye hooks and use a drill to make holes and replace chain with twine for an even more budget friendly hack. Let me know in the comments if you would like a more detailed tutorial!
After reading this blog post, you may never look at bowls the same! I was struggling to find large hanging planters at an affordable price so I decided to think outside the box. I grabbed two large mixing bowls and a roll of twine and created these two hanging planters that fill this corner perfectly.
Hanging planters come for sale in so many shapes and sizes, so if DIY isn’t your jam, I’ve linked some great (and affordable) options below for you to consider adding to your home!
