Gardening Hacks + DIYs As Seen on Good Morning America
Spring has *officially* sprung, and I couldn’t be more excited! I love it when the weather gets warmer and I can enjoy quality time with my family under the California sunshine. One of our favorite weekend activities is to spend time in our garden. This week I hung out with my pals at Good Morning America to share my plant-care and gardening tips and tricks. Whether you're a homeowner or a renter without yard access, we’ve got something for every green thumb.
Check out the full segment, here.
1. DIY a vertical garden. If you've been looking for a way to incorporate plants into a small space, look no further. This vertical garden is perfect for my studio-dwelling peeps and renters alike. Plus, if you plant it with herbs, you’ll always have something fresh to add to your meals. All you need is a few simple tools, a 2x4, mason jars, and galvanized tape to create this masterpiece. Full DIY here.
2. Make air plant wine cork magnets. I’ve been seeing these wine cork planters all over the internet and I am here for it! They are so cute, look awesome on your fridge, and are great to give as favors for any spring parties you host. To make these cuties, take some cork and use a ¼” drill bit and work in a circular motion to create a hole large enough for the air plants. Full tutorial on It All Started With Paint.

3. Dress up planters with rope and denim. I love a good DIY that involves creatively upcycling or repurposing something that you already own. These denim-wrapped planters are a genius way to use everyday household items to personalize your decor and make it feel special. To make your own, cut strips of denim, wrap and glue them around a paint can, and voila: a one-of-a-kind home for your plants. You can also do this with rope found at the hardware store for a more minimal look. Check out a full tutorial on Pillar Blue Box. (Photo via Pillar Box Blue)
*ProTip* When potting plants in planters without drainage holes, place coffee filters at the bottom to help absorb extra water.
