Lisa, at Condo Blues, has a great idea for a DIY hanging herb garden for small spaces. For an even better idea, she made the hanging planter to be self-watering! Lisa’s patio was a little crowded with other plantings so she decided “if you can’t go out, go up,” so a hanging garden was her solution.

Corine, from Junk to Gems, shows us how she made a farmhouse bucket planter for her front porch. Her supplies not only included a galvanized pail and watering can, but also a recycled item and a Dollar Tree supply. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Visit her blog to find out how this beautiful project all came together!
