These DIY trellis ideas are the perfect solution to give your plants a place to grow and get some more air. Whether you want a DIY project that’s cheap and easy or a full fence trellis, you’ll find a detailed tutorial here that fits your needs!
Here are the tutorials that stood out to me:
DIY Chevron Trellis

Life’s a garden, dig it. Or use some garden stakes to make an awesomely designed and stunning chevron trellis! How unique is this? I love how tall this DIY trellis is, and the versatility in the design. Plus, you’d never believe that all you need for this project are two garden stakes, shims, a hand saw, scissors, and a staple gun
If you’re a seasoned DIYer, you probably already have these supplies, and if you aren’t chances are a neighbor does. The reason she made this trellis so large is that she planted jasmine in her yard flowing through the tall and arrowhead-designed trellis. What a good idea! And I heard jasmine makes your whole yard smell good, and look good too!
DIY Trellis For Climbing Fruits & Veggies

Cool as a cucumber and one in a melon, this climbing DIY project will have you feeling on the “top” of the world…or the trellis. If you didn’t already know this, zucchini, squash, melons, and cucumber plants all grow on vines. When you add a trellis to the mix, not only does your garden look more aesthetically pleasing, but the plants benefit too from having more space to grow, and more air. This is extremely easy to build, too! All you need is two identical frames, connected with wire and that’s it. If you want to customize it more, paint it, decorate it, etc you can… however, it looks good standing on its own when the plants start to come up. VEG out this summer with this awesome veggie trellis!
Cucumber Trellis DIY

How cute-cumber is this cucumber arch trellis? Not only does it look good, but its design is utilized for maximum harvesting. She explains how the arch design works best because it makes the cucumbers hang down and out of the foliage so that they don’t get lost and are easy to spot. If you have a garden fence, wire twist ties, and wire cutter, you’ll make this in less than an hour, and cheaply too! Plus, cucumbers aren’t the only thing that can benefit from the arches. Radishes, carrots, and zucchini have been shown to thrive with this design as well. What a great design!
DIY Trellis Screen

Let’s face it, I’ve had way too much screen time this summer. With all of the Bravo real housewives, roses to give phone time, and time blogging, I’m surprised my eyes aren’t burning red and watering all the time. Well, I think I found the solution and this DIY trellis is the screen time my eyes desperately need! This could not be easier to make, with only 4 tools and 3 materials needed for the execution of this trellis screen
This can do more than just sprout your favorite plants, too. It’s so tall, and the screen can hide any parts of your yard you want hidden, and spruce things right up just by being there. I love how her giant potted plant matches her trellis screen, and the reddish clay color she chose to stain it. This is big, bold, and beautiful, and my eyes love looking at it a lot more than my iPad

“The space between. The tears we cry is the laughter keeps us coming back for more. The space between”
I saw a moment to squeeze Dave Matthews Band into this, and I had to run with it. This is a perfect trellis for any spaces between anything in your house against the trim, or in your yard. It’s modern with its light-colored wood, there is plenty of space between the pieces of cedar, and it can be squeezed into any place you see fit due to the neutral color and stature, kinda like Dave Matthews
The other thing I love so much about this is how easy it is to create, especially with the turnout being so elegant and modern, perfect for plants to grow throughout. All you need for this is cedar lumber, wood screws, and primer. Perfect project for a beginner, and perfect for a space between lovers like me!
Rustic Garden Trellis

I’ve been really busy the last few months and asked my husband to kind of “take over the garden” this summer.. Big mistake, and just another prime example of the whole “if you want something done right, do it yourself” thing. Things were scattered, not much grew, and the things that did weren’t alive long. I give him an A for effort though. Something my husband is… HANDY. I wish I would have stumbled upon this gigantic DIY trellis project earlier! If you have a plain old boring fence in your backyard that you’d like to spruce up, how about a whole garden growing all over it?
This trellis is the perfect project for a backdrop fence, you can grow so many different kinds of plants from it, and it makes the backyard look gorgeous! You do need a hand saw, and pickets for this project, as well as a nail gun Find someone handy and get building because the turnout is amazing!
Modern Trellis DIY

“My personal ambition remains the same – to be creative, to be modern, to stay one step ahead, to enjoy life” – Natalie Massenet
Is there anything better than a modern look? I don’t care if we are talking, about clothing, house decor, haircuts, etc… modern is best. This modern DIY trellis is stunning, and plays the modern part perfectly! First of all, check out those gorgeous smoky brown colored gigantic raised planter boxes below the modernly white trellis: the two make an absolute PERFECT pair! I love how the brown color almost shows off the white color, and how the white screen-like trellis colors the entirety of a portion of the house trim. Plus, the leaves look amazing weaving inside and out the trellis. Modern perfection at its finest here!
Lattice Trellis Tutorial
This entire DIY tutorial is too genius to handle, seriously! Not only does she show you how to easily and perfectly create a chevron trellis, but she does it in more than just the backyard… There is so much creativity here! She creates a chevron lattice trellis surrounding a potted plant inside, executes it to hold the place of decor in a home, and also shows you how to create two trellises centered with a giant trellis in the yard for optimal gorgeousness! She uses a standard design and presents pictures as well as directions and a materials list (that is less than 10, but the way) and something that you’d think would be SO complicated is made simple, just like that. I love this creativity!
DIY Obelisk Trellis

I love landmarks. The grand canyon, the Eiffel tower, and the great wall of China, I want to see them all one day! What do you think about making your own stunning obelisk trellis landmark in your backyard?! I can’t get enough of the look of this DIY obelisk project! It’s modern with a hint of rustic, small enough to be placed anywhere yet stunning enough to make a scene, and more versatile than most other trellis designs because it can be placed indoors or outdoors. It almost looks like a black and brown mini streetlight by design on top, with the mini trellis on the bottom waiting for plants to weave in and out. With 5 tools, 6 materials, and a couple of hours of time you can have your very own Eiffel tower in your yard, or living room this summer!
Copper Pipe Trellis

50 shades of grey, how about 33 shades of GREEN! Rusticly stunning, beautifully copper, and easy to make and place, what could be better than this DIY copper trellis project? I love the copper look for a trellis because I think it pairs so well with the green of the leaves and plants you choose to bloom from it
My favorite part about this project is the small size of the trellis; which makes it incredibly easy to place right on a front porch, on a deck, or in any small enclosed space in a garden. Plus, this is another copper trellis, which in my opinion is the most stunning of all! 33 shades of my favorite trellis!
DIY Bean Trellis

Beans are the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you… need this design for a trellis in your garden! I have BEAN looking for a new vegetable trellis design for my garden, and I think I may have met my match! This is definitely for those of us who have a lot of gardening space due to the size of the project, and if you’ve been interested in planting beans here is your chance! With metal elbow poles and welding wire, you can easily create space for beans to grow from, other vegetables, plants, or even all three combined. This is bold, bold, and full of life just waiting to be taken over this summer. These are cool beans!!
Wire Trellis On A Wall

“Ow, she’s a brick house. She’s mighty-mighty, just lettin’ it all hangout. She’s a brick house. That lady’s stacked and that’s a fact!”
I wouldn’t dare forget those of us who live in a brick house, a trellis looks good anywhere! I love this project because I love the “live plants growing on a house look.” Plus, this could not be easier to create. Put your design on paper, mark it on the brick, put drill bits in, put a masonry anchor into each hole, and repeat until your design is complete, and there you have it! I love the way her design is scattered, but she has the leaves overlapping in a way that looks like it could not have been planned better. You’ll sh** a brick over this design!
Cheap Backyard Trellis

My definition of poor: is when you have too many months at the end of your money. Let’s face it, I’m not (as Fergie says) G L A M O R O U S, and I completely understand that for most of us spending a ton of money on tools and materials for something like a trellis just is not fit for our checking accounts. Lucky for us, DIY garden trellis projects like this exist!
This stunning and practical trellis can be made for just FIVE dollars. With 4 1×2 boards that you can get at any Home Depot, brad nails, a brad nailer, and a miter saw, you can have your very own wooden square-designed trellis that plants OR veggies can grow off of! It looks like any other more expensive trellis and you would never know that it’s essentially made from scraps. I’m one step away from being rich, all I need now is money!

I love how big this trellis is, and how even standing alone its stature is a show stopper. It’s stained a brown wooden color, has square designs, and looks stunning. This is a project for someone who’s willing to commit because there are about 15 supplies needed to create this. The turnout is well worth it though, I guarantee it!
How To Build a Trellis Fence

Instead of being on one side of the fence or the other… No need to choose sides. Why don’t we make a trellis out of the fence and watch beautiful things bloom? I absolutely love this creatively unique idea! If you already have a fence in place, this project automatically becomes cheap, versatile, and extremely easy to assemble. With string lines, wire mesh, and brackets, you can design your own trellis within the exterior of the fence easily! The before and after picture is gorgeous, and there are plants or veggies that could grow nicely on it.

I love Mother’s day because I love my mom LOADS. Speaking of which… I think I have some laundry that I would love some help with. I’m just kidding, I’m far, far too old for that. Isn’t a homemade trellis such a great idea for mother’s day this year? I love everything about this as a gift. Moms love their gardens, and a trellis is pretty hip
I bet a lot of moms don’t even know they exist! This is relatively cheap, easy to construct, and perfect for a small garden in the front or backyard. I love the flowers she chooses for this trellis, and you could also gift your mom flowers to go with it! Cute, dainty, and full of love… just like my mom!
Low-Cost DIY T-Post Trellis

It doesn’t get much cheaper, or rustic than this trellis made out of twigs and twine! As far as saving money goes… The entire exterior of this is made out of branches, and twigs. Have woods near you? Then it’s free! Plus, how awesome is this turnout? It doesn’t look cheap at all, and covered in plants the turnout would be absolutely stunning, not to mention natural! This is a smaller trellis and would fit perfectly in a smaller garden or up against a house as she has in the tutorial. A very cute and easy DIY summer project for the yard for sure!
Inexpensive Small Garden Trellis

This is THE project of the summer for a busy mommy… it’s small to fit a small garden, because who has time for the giant ones. It’s inexpensive, because we have too many summer activities already breaking the bank, and it’s a quick project… Because ain’t nobody got time for that!
I’m obsessed with this little trellis. My only garden currently is on my front lawn, and it’s a small space… like I’m sure a lot of ours are. This wired stick design trellis completes a garden and almost makes a small fence around it. It can keep larger animals out, it’s a creative and unique design, and it gives a garden the pop of pizzaz that says “I’m good at this gardening thing.” What a MOMumental DIY project for the summer!

Climb the trellis ladder to success with this awesome DIY project! The obelisk look for a trellis is unique, but in. You can put it almost anywhere in the yard, or even on a deck or front porch, you can assemble the ladder yourself like she does here or use one you already have, and you can make it as tall and as colorful as you want with sizing and stain. This tutorial clearly outlines how to create the obelisk itself with pictures and easy-to-follow directions, as well as shows how to stain it color and assemble it into a trellis. If you’re looking for this type of trellis project, I highly recommend checking it out for some serious inspiration!

VEG out this summer with this DIY trellis project perfect for veggies like beans, peas, and cucumbers! This cattle design is perfect for a home with a smaller garden design, but one that still wants the versatility to be able to grow plenty of veggies in the summertime. And they don’t call this project “SO EASY” for nothing
The trellis goes up in an arch shape and is perfect for a couple of plots of gardening. It’s easy to afford, even easier to assemble with wires and wire hogs, and definitely gives off the appearance that you’re a master at gardening. With just 6 materials and 10 steps, you can have one in your garden this summer, too!
Tomato Trellis-Double Hog Wire Panels

Tomato, tom-ah-toe… This trellis design is amazing no matter which way you say it! Fresh tomatoes in the summer are a true blessing here in Michigan, and even more so if you decide to take the initiative and grow them yourself. But let’s face it, the way that the tomatoes look in a potted plant design is somewhat sloppy, and definitely not aesthetically pleasing
This DIY trellis project makes tomatoes look absolutely stunning, and I love this idea. Plus, it’s so cheap to use hog wires and have them hanging nicely, and you can even have other plants flowing through them to make them look even livelier. Show your favorite fruit… vegetable… that it MATERS this summer!
