Wheeee! I love swings. There is one under this beautiful oak tree at my community park. I love taking the dogs there for to play. While I was swinging ! I came up with the idea of a Garden Planter Swing DIY.
The project consists of a wood planter, rope, paint, nails, flowers and a tree (if you don’t have a tree 🙂 you can use your porch ceiling)
Okay, here’s the way you make this garden swing.
- Spray paint the planter white.
- To cut the rope measure the height of your tree branch or porch from top to bottom.
- Take the rope and wrap it around the side of the planter and hammer small nails into the rope to keep the rope from sliding.
- Tie the rope ends to the branch. If you are using a porch purchase 2 medium hooks and drill two small holes into the wood and twist the hooks into them. Tie the rope to the hooks.
Add the flowers pots into a plastic holder and insert into the planter.
I love my doggies so much that I want them around all the time. We’ll my little love Luigi the Chihuahua. He is always present when I do my projects. Here he is taking a siesta in the swing 🙂 so so cute huh!
