Add beauty to your home with a beautiful wooden hanging plant stand that you built
Building a simple hanging planter will stand out using just a few pieces of wood. This easy DIY project is sure to impress the neighbors and bring some fun color to your porch. This guide will teach you how to build your own wooden hanging planter stand.
What You'll Need
• Cut the boards to length. Use a miter saw to cut the 2" x 4" x 8' board into 4 pieces: two pieces 20" long and two pieces 33" long.
• Use a miter saw to cut 24" off of the 2" x 6" x 8' board.
Use the finish nailer with 2" nails to attach the 2" x 4" x 20" boards to the ends of each 2" x 4" x 33". This is your rectangular frame.
Add wood glue to the outside surface of one of the 2" x 4" x 20" boards.
• Use the nailer with 2" nails to attach the 2" x 6" x 24" board. There should be 2" overhang on each end.
• Turn the frame over so the base is on the ground.
Drill a small pilot hole in the center of the top board.
Add wood glue around the screw in the base of the bun foot finial and screw into the pilot hole.
• Drill a small pilot hole slightly off center on the bottom side of the board (so the screw doesn’t interfere with bun foot finial screw).
• Screw the multi-purpose hook into the pilot hole.
• Finish the hanging plant stand with spray paint or stain and allow it to dry for at least 24 hours.
• Hang the planter basket from the hook and add your plants!
