Since buying my house I’ve been obsessed with home decor, especially home decor with plants. Needless to say I’ve created some statement pieces with plants. Here is a step by step guide to how I made this DIY plant hanger for under $50.
Preparing the Copper Pipe
I have copper shelves on top of my bed so I used a copper pipe to tie it all together. I bought the pipe and end caps from Home Depot. I asked them to cut it to size (6 feet) for me. After bringing it home I sanded it with sand paper, 220 to remove the manufacturer labeling, and then 1000 to sooth it down. I didn't polish it but if you'd like you can use a polishing compound and a buffer to add that gorgeous mirror shine to it.
Total Cost: less than $10
Hanging The Pipe with Decorative Chains
Next step was to measure three equal pieces of Decorative Steel Chain (black) that I got from Home Depot and added the Large Black S shaped hooks on the end. I bought a 30 pack of the S hooks from Amazon since I used those to hang the plants as well. I also added two anchors and Vinyl-Coated Steel Mug Hooks (1-1/4 in. 20 lb) in the ceiling with a distance of 62 inches between the ends. I also added one in the middle since the pipe sagged slightly in the middle once I added the planters.
Total Cost: less than $16
Making Macrame Planters and Final Touches
I used macrame cord to make my own Macrame planters. You could find pretty ones in amazon as well. For the pots , I bought 5" pots from dollar tree and spray painted them gold and black. I love Ivy plants and I think hanging plants goes best with this decor. I picked out some from my local nursery for $2.99 each.
Total Cost: less than $20
There you go! This is a very pretty statement piece for any room. You can modify it to work for your space. It definitely brightened my space!
