Make a DIY plant stand for spring or summer with this easy tutorial! Simply use paint, wood rings and wood balls from the craft store.
Skills Required: Beginner. You’ll be doing a lot of spray painting for this project. My recommendation for success is multiple, light coats and lots of patience.
What are these, you ask?
They are plant stands for these!! Yes, I made these DIY plant stands with supplies I had on hand and some new Krylon spray paint called Dual Paint and Primer. And of course . . . Mod Podge.
It’s super easy to make a DIY plant stand. I like them for outside plants because they allow proper draining and air flow. But let’s just be honest – I like the color too. I could use little clay trays, but I don’t want to!
You might not want to either . . . and you might want to make some smaller or larger versions to dress up your garden. If you do, it’s really easy.
DIY Plant Stand
Gather These Supplies
- Krylon Dual Paint and Primer – True Blue and Ivy Leaf
- Mod Podge Outdoor
- 6″ Wood Floral and Craft Rings
- 1″ wood balls – 3 per ring
- something to spray paint on
Here are the goodies to make your plant stand. This tutorial is going to be so easy for you. You don’t have to be an expert crafter to do this by any means!
Spray paint the rings with several coats.
Spray paint the balls with several coats. I used small paint brushes to hold them (they had holes). Barbecue skewers and a styrofoam block also work well for this purpose.
The spray paint is indoor/outdoor, but Mod Podge Outdoor will offer extra protection.
Plus you can use it to glue the balls on (and it’s water resistant). Let your DIY plant stand dry.
Wait about 24 hours before placing your plants on top! I love them. What a great display on my patio or porch.
I’m so happy with them! A DIY plant stand adds a bright and cheery touch to my porch. You can make a few, or a whole bunch in several colors.
