How to Make a Hanging Prism Plant Holder
Show off your favorite houseplant in geometric style. This hanging plant holder uses inexpensive brass piping to create a stunning display.
Three trends collide in this chic DIY project. Our hanging plant holder effortlessly blends a geometric design and metallic finish with pretty foliage.
To make one, you'll need brass piping, gold wire, rope, and a few other craft supplies. Thread the wire through cut sections of pipe, then twist to form a prism shape. After a few adjustments, your hanging craft will be ready for your favorite potted plant.
What You'll Need
- 90 inches of gold brass piping
- Tape measure
- Permanent marker
- Pipe cutter
- Thin gold wire
- Wire clippers
Step 1: Cut Pipes
Gather all materials on a sturdy work surface. Measure and mark brass piping into nine sections (six 9-inch pieces and three 12-inch pieces). Cut through marks with a pipe-cutting tool.
Step 2: Thread with Wire
Unfurl a length of wire, then thread it through three of the 9-inch sections of pipe. Shape the pipe pieces into a triangle, then cut excess wire as needed. Twist the wire ends together to secure.
Step 3: Create Triangle
Continue to thread wire through the remaining 9-inch pieces of pipe. Secure at the corners to form a three-dimensional triangle. If you run out of wire, simply twist in a new section of wiring. Twist the wiring together at the final point until secure. Trim as needed.
Editor's Tip: If you can't slide wiring through the pipe because it's already stuffed with wire, simply loop the wire around the joints, then snip away the excess.
Step 4: Attach Longer Pipes
Twist wire to the top of the triangle. Thread the 12-inch sections of pipe together on the wire. This will complete the prism shape with a longer, triangular top section.
Step 5: Finish and Hang
Make a wire loop at the top of the prism, then trim any excess wire. Thread cord through the wire loop and hang holder from a mounted hook. Place a potted plant in the center of the holder.
