DIY ring planter – A super easy, customizable, and fun way to get a unique look on a small budget!
The layered ring look is super popular now in anything from foot stools, chairs, ottomans, and accessories.
I love the look of a ring planter, but am working with a small budget, so I decided to make a version from supplies I mostly had on hand.
I started out with the larger rings in the set, and decided how many rings I wanted to hot glue together.
Next I grabbed my glue gun and began applying glue to the first ring.
Then I pressed a ring on top making sure it was centered and even.
I repeated this step until all 6 rings were very sturdily glued together to form a DIY ring planter.
In my recycling bin, I grabbed a couple pieces of cardboard to use as a base. I traced my wreath form with a pen, then cut inside the circle with my scissors.
You’ll want to make sure you cut it quite a bit smaller than the actual shape. I should have gone smaller here, but eventually cut it down further.
Using hot glue, I attached it to the base of the rings.
Then I repeated all the same steps on my smaller wreath forms, which only took a quick minute.
This base was cut much smaller and worked so much better.
It was time to paint my DIY ring planter!
I decided on a coat of white acrylic on the larger one. Since it was already white one simple coat was ll I needed to make a good base for my design.
Then I chose to use a charcoal gray color on the smaller one.
Once it was coated I sat it aside to dry.
When my white paint dried, I used a paint brush to paint imperfect circles around the shape.
The paint colors popped nicely off of the white base.
I then set it aside to dry and began painting designs on the gray one.
For an added pop, I used my white paint to add random polka dots over the shapes.
And finally I did the same polka dot technique on the white version.
I love the extra layered interest it adds!
Once my DIY ring planters dried I styled them in my daughter’s room.
The white one is pretty tall, so I added some filler in the bottom and then placed a faux potted plant inside. It acts like a sleeve around the pot.
You can use real or faux plants or anything else that you wish. I don’t recommend using dirt/soil in the planter directly, but rather placing a potted plant inside.
Finally I slipped a small potted faux succulent into the smaller one.
I think these DIY ring planters turned out super cute, and work perfectly in my daughter’s room.
Nice bang for little buck!
