DIY copper plant stands

My copper infatuation is still in full swing so when I was looking for plant stands for the studio and came up empty handed, I took matters into my own hands. Get the full DIY after the jump…

I found these simple plant stands on Amazon and liked the hairpin legs but thought they needed a little something, which is where the spray paint and rope came in.

Supplies needed:
Plant Stands // Large // Small
Spray Paint (this is the best copper I’ve found)

Step 1: Spray paint those puppies! Step 2: Tie one end of the rope next to one of the legs on the plant stand. Cut the rope at about 10 feet or so and loosely wrap around your hand so you can easily pass the rope through the inside sections.

Step 3: Wrap the rope tightly around and around the two bars keeping it taut as you go.

Step 4: Once you get to the next leg wrap the rope around 5 times between the two leg supports, then wrap the rope horizontally until you have 7 loops.

Step 5: Continue on all the way around cutting new sections of rope as needed.

Finally, pick your favorite plant and step back to admire you crafty work.

P.s. The one on the left is called a rubber plant and the one on the right is called monstera… and you can find the simple white pot here.
