Think you don’t have space for a garden? Think again. This DIY vertical garden is made with a clothing rack, macrame planters, and as much greenery as we could squeeze in. It works indoors or outdoors and only takes five minutes to build. So whether you’re patio-less, backyard-less, or are just looking for an excuse to double your plant collection, this easy project is calling your name.

Materials + Tools:


  1. If you’re adding color, first follow the step-by-step below.
  2. Using rope, fasten the macrame planters to the clothing rack.
  3. Carefully add in the potted plants.

If you want to gussy up your clothing rack with some color, try this color-blocking trick with spray paint:

  1. Measure and tape off about one foot of the top of each clothing rack arm.
  2. Spray paint one color above the tape, then let it dry.
  3. Remove the tape, then re-tape the arms just above your spray line.
  4. Spray the bottom half of the rack with your second color.
  5. Once dry, remove the tape.
