DIY Plant Pot Stand

LET’S DO THIS CUTE LITTLE DIY TOGETHER!…

All of these measurements are specific to my project, be sure to do your own measurements for the size of pot you are using.

  • First measure the width of your pot at the widest part, that will be the measurement you need for the Cross Cut for base
  • Second Cross Cut will be the same length of the first one minus the width of your wood and then divided by 2:

8″ – 1.75″ (width of wood) = 6.25″ and then cut that in half (3.12″ each)

So you will have these 3 pieces for your Cross Cuts to form your base:

8″ piece

3.12″ piece (x2)

  • Put your pocket holes into these cross pieces in the spots you need to connect them together securely (see picture)
  • Apply Gorilla glue to each piece and then screw them together

NEXT:

  • Decide how high off the ground you want your plant to stand and then also how high up the side of the pot you want your wood to go. I wanted this little guy approx 5-6″ off ground and not all the way to the top of the pot so I went with 9″ side pieces.
  • Cut the four sides of the plant stand and do the same thing with your pocket holes, glue and screw together
  • Be sure you place and screw the base at the height you want it, this is totally a personal preference, just make sure you mark it evenly on each side piece so that the plant sits flush

LAST, THE FUN PART:

  • sand and stain/paint once the glue is set and the stand is sturdy
  • place your pot inside your stand – SO cute!
