Idea process to make hanging storage baskets wall decor?
Use woven baskets to hang plants for wall decor that adds some charm to your home. These hanging woven baskets made with macrame, jute, burlap, rope and fabric come in various shapes and sizes. The beautiful natural and neutral appeal and color makes them a favorite at home for any decor style. Whether you love urban indoor plants, boho style or farmhouse to name a few popular home decoration styling that trends these days.
A few days ago I came across these hexagon shaped natural woven baskets. They make great choice for organization and decor in any space but I felt the need to hang them on a narrow vertical window wall. I bought a few to see how they look hanging on the wall, and I instantly fell in love.
Next I wanted plant holders or ceramic pots to create flower wall decor. My initial idea was to pot real plants because this wall receives wonderful sunlight in the morning. Another great choice is the succulents. But they all require care and maintenance and I instantly realized maintaining them on the wall would require extra work. So, I decided to display artificial plants for hanging basket plant stand. These make a great hanging kitchen herb garden in a small kitchen space or breakfast nook as well.
I was also curious whether the pots will slide from their spot due to continuous movement on the floor, so I tested it out before buying the ceramic pots. The terra cotta pots will look wonderful against the natural look of these baskets as well. You could also invest in painted clay pots. All these are beautiful choices to make this simply and vibrant woven basket planter for hanging planters and pots.
Now let’s get to the part you are here for:

How to hang woven baskets plant wall decor?
The project is self explanatory. However, I’ll share some quick tips to make it easier for you:
- Decide and visualize the wall space where you want to display wall baskets.
- This will help you know the number of baskets you need for your project.
- I measured the wall to decide I needed five wall hanging baskets. And to add more interest I played with the sizes of hexagon baskets.
- The baskets I bought have a base ranging from 2-3 inches.
- Next you need to figure out hanging plant pots or flower pots. Measure the base of the hanging plant holder. Use it as reference when buying the pots.
- Lastly, decide on the best hanging plants. The best is the one which is convenient for you. You can pot real plants or artificial plants. I bought succulent fake green plants and pots from IKEA.
- Now measure the length of each basket and mark the wall for even placement.
- Push the tacks in the wall and hang the wire baskets.
- Place the pots and you are done!
- If you are worried about the planters falling consider wiring it to the base of the basket. This can be easily done by wiring the base of planter and then looping the wire underneath the basket base and twisting it together to secure it in place.
