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:
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
- 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!
