How to Draw Hanging Plants

I love drawing cute things in general.

Hanging plants are absolutely adorable – you can draw them in notebooks, on sticky notes and on almost any cute journal.

It really is very aesthetic and pleasing.

This is a great drawing idea for kids.

I’ve already covered a post on drawing easy succulents like cacti and more.

But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or colored pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

How to draw Hanging Plants – step-by-step tutorial

The thing with drawing plants is, that you’ll never run out of variety.

You can mix and match pots, hanging threads, and plants and get a whole new variation every time!

So, I’ll start by drawing the rim of the pot.

Next, we’ll draw the rest of the pot.

Draw the pot

Next, we need to draw a small point above the pot.

This is the point from where the hanging plant will hang.

Now, we’ll draw 3 lines which will be the lines of string from the point to the pot. You can use a ruler for this if you’re drawing it physically.

Draw the strings to the pot.

Next, color the pot.

You can choose any color you want. I’m going to color the pot purple and add some cute white dots to the potted plant.

Color the pot a pretty purple.

Remember, you can draw any type of pot – the possibilities are endless.

Here are a few pots you can draw when drawing hanging plants:

Remember you can draw a variety of pots.

Now, it’s time to draw the hanging plant.

Again, you can draw any type of plant inside your pot.

Draw a plant to complete the hanging plant.

One thing to remember is when you’re drawing your plant, vary the color of the leaves.

Use 2-3 shades of green when drawing your plant – this way your hanging plant will look more authentic and real.

You can also draw a variety of plants to create a new hanging plant each time.

Let me show you one more example:

See, doesn’t the plant look completely different?
