Whether your green thumb – or square footage – allow you the luxury of a full-on home garden or not, use this DIY as an excuse to get your hands dirty this weekend!

Kokedama are small, Japanese-style hanging planters that use just a little moss and string to create the most stunning Zen-like display. Using the right soil is key, but the materials are simple. Gather them up and create just one for a patio space or make up to a dozen for gifts and garden parties!

  • Here's what you'll need...

    Small plant
    Heavy clay mud or bonsai soil
    Potting soil

    The full instructions for creating your kokedama can be found at Makezine's blog here. Gather your supplies, follow the instructions and enjoy a green weekend!
