If you want to add a little boogie to your home decor, a DIY hanging disco ball planter might do the trick! On this episode of In The Know: DIY, TikTok star and DIY expert, Tay BeepBoop (@taybeepboop), shares how to make the viral disco ball planter, allowing you and your plants to party 24/7! 

Tools & Materials Used

  • Box cutter
  • X-Acto Knife

Step 1: Cut Your Disco Ball

Choose where you want to cut your disco ball, and remove the row of mirrors from that line so that when you cut, you are cutting through Styrofoam. Once the mirror tiles are removed, take your X-Acto knife and carefully cut through the Styrofoam and remove the portion of the disco ball that you’ve cut off. 

Step 2: Attach Chains

Choose three spots equilateral to each other on the top of the disco ball and remove the mirror tiles in those areas. Then, pierce the hooks of the chain through those spots. 

Step 3: Clean Up The Edges

If you are working with an uneven disco ball pattern, like Tay is, use leftover mirror tiles to reattach to any areas with exposed Styrofoam.

Step 4: Add Your Plant And The Hardware
Pop your plant inside the disco ball, and hang the chains from their respective hooks. Now your plant is party ready!
