Proceed by painting the metal screen with rustic color. Take the coconut fabric and put it inside the metal cone. Tear a little bit on the middle part and fold the wings to the inner side.
Pour the cactus mix soil and add the succulent. Repeat the process until the succulents are stacked nicely. Make a hole on the top part and hang it on your entrance. Be careful while watering the plant; pour moderate amount of water only.

You can also drill the wall.
Connect the hook using chain. It is better to hang the planters on different height. When measuring this, make sure you don’t have to stand on your toes just to pour waters. Fill the planter with soil, small rocks and plant. Just a tips for the plant; pick a variant that lives on wet soil. Don’t forget that fishbowl keeps the water on the bottom base. This condition may kill the other plants.
3. Copper Hanger
Normal planter has holes on the base, functioning as the water escape. With this feature on the pot, you need certain place to let the water drip without adding too much daily work. Many people add a tray under the pot, but you know that this place will be a home for mosquito larvae. There is a better way to tackle this problem.
