Handmade Hanging Planters by Audrey Smit | west elm

With a baby on the way, Audrey of This Little Street knew that it was time to get her house ready for the summer.

So Audrey surveyed her home, inside and out, and saw what it was missing… Something green. She needed to add more plants.

That’s when she discovered our ceramic animal planters! They’re sized for succulents, but to maximize her space, Audrey had the creative solution of turning these into hanging planters. So she got to work on making these birds fly away…

Scroll down to see how Audrey did it, and visit This Little Street to get all of the DIY instructions you need to re-create these handmade hanging planters at home!

“I wanted to keep the feel very natural and soft, so I used some leather lace + unfinished wood beads/rings to create a little ‘nest’ for these planters.” – Audrey Smit
