I’m so excited to be back and sharing my version of the The Home Depot Do-It-Herself Workshop Hanging Gutter Planter. This project was so much fun! If you missed the BIG announcement last week, myself and three other bloggers were picked by our host Sandra at The Rustic Life to participate in The Home Depot Virtual DIY Workshops.
This is one talented group of Do-It-Herselfers:

The Home Depot #DIHWorkshop
Thursday April 21, 2016
06:30 PM – 08:00 PM
The Home Depot provides FREE Workshops at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. There are three types of workshops: Do-It-Yourself (DIY), Do-It-Herself (DIH) and Kids. Workshops are where customers can learn how to build decor projects, how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions. I just recently took a Do-It-Yourself Workshop on installing a tile backsplash and couldn’t believe everything I learned. Visit http://workshops.homedepot.com to learn more.
This little project was so fun and the best part is it is completely customizable to your space.
Here’s what I used:
(all from The Home Depot)
– 1 vinyl 10 ft gutter (cut into three 30 inch sections)
– 3 sets of gutter end caps
– 20′ of 1/4″ rope
– Rustoleum Hammered spray paint
To customize my planters, I used the spray paint for a galvanized look. And I must say this might be my new favorite spray paint, it achieves that metal look perfectly. I also used natural sisal rope for a more rustic look.
Once my gutters were hung, planting my favorite flowers was a breeze. I’m sure you all know I’m not a big fan of color and like to keep things neutral at our house, so all white was perfect.
The hooks are great for hanging my little watering can that matches my “galvanized” gutters perfectly! Don’t forget to drill extra holes in the bottom of each gutter for drainage. I love this planter so much, I want to make more and hang them in multiple rows along our fence. It’s a simple touch that adds a lot of character to an outdoor space!
Don’t forget to check out your local Home Depot for more workshops and register for the upcoming Do-It-Herself Workshop!
