DIY Rustic Modern Plant Stand

This small plant stand is actually very similar to the small rustic “stool” I shared earlier this week, only it’s a lot easier to make and cost even less money.

If you saw my rustic stool then you know that I made my own hairpin legs for that project, but for this little guy I found the most perfect little copper pipe plate hooks at the hardware store. Best of all it was less than $2 for a pack of 5, and they are so cute because they look like miniature hairpin legs.

You could definitely cut a slice of wood from a fallen branch or tree, but if you don’t have anything lying around {or a saw to slice one} than you can pick one up from your local craft store. Michael’s carries a wide variety of rustic tree slices. I purchased a medium birch wood slice that cost $6.99 but used a 40% off coupon so it was less than 5. You can easily pull up the Michael’s mobile coupons on your phone and they take competitor coupons from JoAnn’s too.

We then added the pipe hooks to the bottom of the wood slice using copper plated hanger tape. We cut off some strips of the hanger tape and then added screws into the smaller holes. It’s actually better to use two small pieces of hanger tape for each side of the legs {like we did on the rustic stool} but we actually did this project before that one. I also had to squeeze each “leg” together to make them closer together while Eric screwed them into the wood slice. I recommend pre-drilling your holes first to make things easier.

I think it turned out so adorable and although it’s small it’s the perfect little stand for displaying plants. Of course the possibilities are endless as far as what you can display on it. Maybe use it to hold a small frame, on your desk for office accessories like a stapler or pen holder, or even in your bathroom to hold a jar of toiletries. So what do you think?
