A Damage Free Way to Hang a Planter

Today’s quick tip is something I came up with to hang a planter at our summer rental.

A damage free way to hang a planter on a railing I knew I wanted to have a planter box on the railing of our patio balcony but I couldn’t find one that didn’t require drilling into something. I needed a damage free way to hang a planter.

That planter shown above is everywhere and to hang it I went into my nearest Home Depot and grabbed a 6″ Worm Gear Clamp. This works like a charm. I just attached it to the flower planter by weaving it through the metal frame. It adjusts so you can get the perfect grip on your railing.

For you renters, this is a great idea! It’s damage free hanging and it supports the weight of the planting box. It costs less than a dollar too, so it’s a great option.

Did you catch my latest DIY yesterday?

If not, I made these modern and fun candle holders. You can see the full tutorial below.

Happy Tuesday!!! I’m up early to meet up with my blog buddy Danielle so we can take our boys to the beach. YAY! It’s going to be a fun day!

    We use plastic zip ties to hang our 8 railing-mounted baskets in the front of our house. Plastic doesn’t rust like metal.

      That’s a good idea if they are long enough. Good alternative if you are against using metal. Ours is on a covered patio so we don’t have to worry about rain so this worked perfect.
