Fun Update to Boring Backsplash

DIY Shoe Holder Planter

This unique planter is one of the easiest DIY projects that work very well in a small space like a balcony. Grow your favorite plants—even the herbs using an old over-the-door shoe holder—and hang it as a unique vertical garden on your balcony or the outside kitchen’s wall.

Hang the shoe mounts over the door on the fence, tucking herbs into compartments for a fun touch on a vertical planter.

Place the hook on the post and hang your shoe adjusters from the hook. They carry pretty much all the weight of the plant, compost and water so make sure the hook is very strong.

If you have a small balcony for wall planting, you should consider making something creative like a shoe organizer planter like this one.

A Healthy DIY Lip Balm
