DIY Wine Bottle Hanging Planters

by on Apr 18, 2012

Bottles are hanging by string from a tree.

 I’m guessing these wine bottle planters would be easy to replicate. First we’d have to cut off the bottom of the bottles. We wouldn’t be able to use potting soil as our planting medium. From the look of the pictures, it seems moss was used–perhaps peat? Wire bound or small rope tied just below the bottle’s threads is all we’d need to hang. What do you think? Have any further suggestions for a DIY attempt?

    Use a square of Chicken wire, about 8″ should do it, and formit into a ball around the plant medium.  Attaching a  wire (or cord) to the chicken wire and out through the neck of the bottle will hold the plants roots inside the bottle securely.

    Fill the bottle with water. Hold it over the sink and hit it on the top with a rubber hammer or something that will not break the glass. Cavitation will tear of the bottom. For safety protect your hands!
