Is it OK to want to make everything out of copper now? I think so. After making the mini pot plant holder, I just had to create more. I’ve already told you about my obsession with plants, so naturally the next project was a way to bring a new plant into the house. This raised copper pot plant stand is a great way to add some height variation to your space or lift a plant off the ground to show off its beauty.
And of course, it’s really simple to make and will impress your friends.
What you need:
15mm Copper Pipe (82cm / 34in needed)
8 x Copper Tee’s
8 x pipe caps / stop ends
Epoxy or other string, quick drying glue
Pot plant (+-15cm diameter)
What to do:
Cut your copper pipe into pieces these sizes:
4 x 15cm (6in)
4 x 9cm (3.5in)
4 x 5cm (2in)
4 x 2.5cm (1in)
Stick it all together with some Blu-Tack / Prestik first to check the size. Then follow through by sticking it together with Epoxy.
Start by sticking the base together. Stick everything on the left and then everything on the right and then slot the two halves together. If you stick the pipe together by moving either clockwise or anti-clockwise you could end up with a piece of pipe that cannot be slotted in, as the pieces already stuck in will not bend to allow for the extra piece of pipe that needs to be glued into the copper tee. It’s difficult to explain, but trust me, if you do it that way, you may get stuck.
Next, stick on your copper tee’s for the legs. Make sure to do this on a flat surface so that you can level all the tee’s. Work quickly with the Epoxy so that you have a little bit of time to correct. This step is what will ensure that your legs stand straight up. Allow the Epoxy to dry before adding the legs.
Add the legs and pipe caps and your very own DIY’d raised copper pot plant stand is ready to go!
