No doubts that blooming flowers and green plants are a perfect decoration for small outdoor living spaces turning your house into a peaceful and natural place to live. The railing planter is also very space saving solution for the gardening enthusiasts. Here are ten space saving Balcony railing planters.
1) An outdoor seating area decorated with summer flowers in hanging planter
There are different planters that have been designed to be mounted on the balcony railing, outdoor walls, and the garden fences. This is a creative handmade railing planter with outstanding decoration. You can plant in your favorite blossoms or add some greenery.
2) Yogurt Containers
This is a great DIY idea for railing planters as it is cheap, but original. You can take a few big or average sized yogurt containers, decorate them well and plant in your lovely flowers. This is a very simple idea because you need a simple plastic food container that is mostly thrown or recycled. So, why not convert it into a lovely balcony hanging planter?
3) Planter from a Wooden Crate
Making your balcony planter from a wooden crate is simple and a very good idea. Due to their generous and varying sizes, you can easily find some suitable boxes to decorate and then hang over the balcony. You can use some big boxes to plant with your favorite vegetables or fruits, and water them daily in the morning. As nature takes care of all of the hard work, so you only need a wooden box, fertile soil and a healthy plant to grow.
4) Modern Cement Planters
Cement planters are also cool and original with fresh handmade feel. You can easily make them at home in a stylish and lovable way. The mixture required is one part of cement and four part of sand. To give it a beautiful shape, take a large pot or a bowl and fill it with cement. Before filling, place in a small size cup, an ice cream cup would be great and then flip it. Allow it to dry. After that drill a few hole for drainage purpose and sand the edges. Finally, you need to hang them safely so that it doesn’t fall of. Ensure that you don’t make too much big cement planter, else it might be difficult for you to hang it on the balcony.
5) Mason Jar Planters
I actually loved this idea because it’s very simple, interesting and effective as well. We all have a spice jar that you can wash and then reuse it. Search in your kitchen, you will surely find a mason jar, else you can get it from a local store. You also need a flexible steel strip that holds these Mason jar planters along the balcony railing.
6) Floppy Disk Planters
If you are a computer enthusiast, you’ll surely find some old floppy disk. Instead, you throw them in the garbage, why not turn it into a cool DIY idea? You need a total of 5 floppy disks for a single planter pot. This idea requires more creativity because you have to apply the glue and level the floppies properly. Once done, your balcony planter is ready to bloom.
7) Recycled Paint Can Planters
Recycling has become a trend because you can turn the plastic bottles, plastic cups or empty cans into something interesting, like this planter. Just head over to your garage and search for an old paint can. Wash it thoroughly, pour into the fertile soil and plant your flowers or vegetables.
8) Tea Cup Planters
You might be trying this idea for the very first time, but it’s amazing. You can search for all the old tea cups in your kitchen, paint them, add the fertile soil and a lovely tiny flower. This could be a great idea for a balcony flower bed, but you need a lot of tea cups for that.
9) Hanging Planter of a Tire
Search for an old tire that is not in use. Then wash it both from outside and inside. Finally, add soil and the green plants or lovely flowers. You can hang it on the balcony, and also paint the tire with your favorite colors.
