Kmart hack: Beehive hexagon vertical garden

I’ve been looking for a stylish vertical garden for months and months, so of course I was thrilled when I found one I loved… until I saw it was priced well over a thousand dollars!

With all the expenses of a new build, I simply couldn’t justify this on top so it was time to get creative…

Out shopping at Kmart one day, I spotted a black wire hexagon wall hanging/shelf and that’s when I got the idea to combine a cluster of these into a beehive shape. This tutorial is so easy, it hardly needs instructions but just to be thorough, here they are.

Items you will need

  • 6 x Kmart black ‘Metal wire pot holders
  • 6 x Kmart ‘Geo pot‘ black
  • Electric drill
  • Concrete screws
  • Plastic coated wire
  • Pliers
  • Soil and plants


  1. Join the wire pot holders together in your preferred design using the plastic coated wire and pliers.
  2. Tie planters together

  3. Place your finished beehive planter against the wall and mark where you will drill the holes. To avoid damaging the bricks, we only marked in the mortar.
  4. Mark hanging

  5. Pre-drill the holes and then use concrete screws to fix the planter in place.
  6. Pre-drill holes

    Drill into place

  7. Fill the geo planters with plants and place on the planter shelves. Voila, you’re done!

For now, I’ve just planted the same hardy succulent in all the geo planters.

The goal is to find larger, possibly rectangular pots, that can fit along the full base of each wire shelf so I can fill the piece with loads more plants. I like the idea of Jasmine growing and climbing its way up through all the hex planters.

I’m super happy with this quick, easy and inexpensive Kmart hack to create an outdoor hexagon vertical garden — it’s definitely added interest to my outdoor space.
