Put that green thumb front and center. You don't need to be a master DIY'er to make these hanging planters. If you can punch a hole and place a hook with an adhesive back, you too can have a brand new planter to show off your gardening prowess. A hanging container garden is a great way to fill an empty corner that has been bare for far too long. These nifty little containers are also a great idea for homes with children and pets. They'll keep potentially harmful leaves and flowers out of their grasp. And, we'll be honest, we've never met a hanging basket that we didn't like. These planters are no exception.
