Love it. Rope + soil + clean jars + succulents = hanging garden. So easy, so upcycle-y, so lovely. This would work super well with herbs, too, or small flowers like violets!

You can check out the full project at Revolução no Quintal, although the site is in Portuguese.


  1. Be careful with growing things in jars… there is no drainage and it is easy to get root-rot, just a heads up!

    • I've been trying to find a container small enough to fit mini succulents in to display in a tiny weird window. Baby food jars could be perfect.
