Bring some greenery into your interiors with these easy DIY projects.

Hanging planter and canvas bag planter 

Love the copper pipe trend? Why not use it to house some of your air plants? Purchase PVC pipe joints from the hardware store, coat them in your desired shade and attach ropes to them.

Another way to present your plants in a neat way is to place them in cute canvas bags. We bought these from Daiso and dip-dyed them in fabric paint.

Featuring Nicolo Rialto Pine WYA 5277E laminates from Lamitak.

Artificial plants, from $6, from Robinsons. Print with frame, $17.99, from Typo. Universo Positivo Disc stool, $195, from Ethnicraft. Featuring Nicolo Rialto Pine WYA 5277E laminates from Lamitak.

Monstera leaf tray 

Get in on the botanical craze with this eye-catching yet rather effortless project. You’ll need a white tray, a couple of artificial monstera palm leaves and crafting epoxy. Cut your leaves to fit nicely into the tray and lay them on the tray. You can dab some craft glue onto the undersides of the leaves to keep them in place. Mix the epoxy according to package directions and then pour it into the tray. Place tray on a flat surface and leave to dry for 24 hours.
