Hanging Plants From Curtain Rods

Use an Existing Curtain Rod

The simplest way to hang plants from curtain rods is to use an existing rod. You can get creative with s-hooks, macrame plant hangers, or other hanging plant decor and fasten them onto your curtain rod.

Use Kwik-Hang Curtain Rod Brackets & Rods

Starting from scratch? Kwik-Hang curtain rod brackets are a no-drill, no-damage alternative to traditional curtain rod brackets. Just align the brackets with the top corners of your window frame and tap them in – it’s that simple. They can support up to 20 pounds, giving you the freedom to hang a variety of greenery from your curtain rod – with no drill holes.

Use a Tension Rod

If you’re looking for another rental-friendly, no-drill option, you can install a tension rod in your window frame. However, tension rods may not support heavy weights, so this option is more suitable for small potted plants.

Hang Plants in Mesh Shopping Bags

Reduce, reuse, recycle! Mesh bags are a fun and functional way to hang plants from curtain rods. If you don’t already have mesh bags lying around your house, you can find some on Amazon.

Just place a potted plant in a mesh bag and slide the handles onto your curtain rod – that’s it! This method is excellent for plants with hanging leaves and branches, and it’s a unique, low-cost way to add greenery to your windows.

Make DIY Shelving

If you have lots of small potted plants and nowhere to put them, DIY hanging shelves are for you! You can place plants on top of a shelf or into holes cut into the shelf for stability – there are many ways to get creative. Play around with the size, number, and shape of shelves for a clever addition to your living space.

Hang Planters From the Ceiling

Screw-in ceiling hooks are a heavy-duty option for hanging weighty plants – some can hold up to 50 pounds. Ceiling hooks give you the freedom to hang plants anywhere in your home (as long as there is enough natural light), and they’re great for plants with cascading leaves.

Use a Pot Rack as a Hanging Shelf

If you have an old pot rack in your kitchen, create a hanging herb garden with it! If you like to cook, this is a great way to keep fresh, home-grown herbs at arm’s reach.

Use Old Baskets or Colanders as Hanging Plant Pots

Instead of throwing out old kitchenware, make it your next DIY project! For example, using old fruit baskets or colanders to hang plants adds an eccentric touch to any room. If you have more than one, paint them and hang them at different heights to add depth and interest to your space.

Use a Garment Rack to Create a Plant Screen

If you have some free space in your home, use a garment rack to group your plants together. Hang plants on garment racks the same way you hang plants on curtain rods or attach some hanging shelves to the rod.
