How to Make a Hanging Planter Cheaply (step by step)

Hello Friends,

Today I'm going to show you the easiest way to make a hanging planter out of a tin can. This method is great for herbs for baked bean sized cans but the bigger you get them you could start growing tomato plants in them. At the end there is also a video to watch about it too!

Hope you enjoy it and if you liked the idea please comment below.
First get a general tin can any size and put water in it to freeze and makes it easier to make holes in (Ice isn't in the picture)
Make two holes at the top opposite each other.

Make 4-5 drainage holes at the bottom.

Fill up half way with good quality peat-free compost.

Get your plant ready (here a herb).

Fill it around with some more compost.

Feed the string through one hole.

Tie it on tightly and repeat with the other end.

Here you have made a hanging planter, easy!
So there you have the hanging planter, how easy was that? It looks great so why not make it and hang it on a fence or on your wall. This will help save loads of money too!
The video shows you in more detail of what to do. If you don't use tin cans simply ask your friends and family to save them up for you. It's important to reuse what you can.
