From the blogger: "I don't consider myself to have much of a green thumb. However since we have been stuck at home we decided to plant a garden. I started some green onions in a peat moss container and needed to plant them in soil. I purchased a metal wall pocket last summer at a garage sale and got the idea to turn it into a containter for my green onion starts. Now it hangs above the raised bed garden. Hopefully I can keep the green onions alive to eat them in a month!"

Estimated CostUnder $10

Time to CompleteIn an evening

Primary TechniqueGreen Crafting



  1. Drill holes in the bottom of the pocket

  2. Print out the free printable images, cut them out and decoupage onto the blank side.

  3. FYI I sealed mine with clear nail polish on top of the Mod Podge

  4. Use a plastic sheet protector (or other plastic) to line the pocket (to make it safe from the metal)

  5. Fill it with potting soil and hang it outside in the sun.
