My favourite time of the month is here! It’s Int’l Bloggers Club time and that means lot’s of inspiration from 5 blogs around the world! Just in case you don’t know or remember what our club is about, read more here. Last time we had tons of fun talking about our epic hits and epic fails but this month we thought, we’d come up with some outdoor ideas! Ready for my easy DIY makrame plant stand??

Easy DIY Makrame Plant Stand
What I’ve used:
~ large terracotta flower pot [I painted mine white]
~ yute rope
~ white terracotta plate for the top [not shown on this picture, but below]
~ scissors & hot glue
This terracotta flower pot is from last summer and I acutally used it for our Christmas tree in the winter time as well! Turned around, I wrapped yute rope around the top and put some hot glue on a few spots to keep it in place.
Then I cut 7 strings of rope about 4 times the lenght of the hight of the flower pot. I folded them in half and created a loop over the top string on the pot. Taking the two ends, I pulled them through the loop and pulled the knot tight [see below]. I repeated this with the remaining 6 strings.
I grabbed two lengths of twine and tied them together and continued all the way around the first row. Then started again with the second row and repeated all the way to the bottom of the pot.
At the end, I turned the pot around and pulled each string tight into the open top [which will be the bottom because I turned the pot upside down] and secured it with hot glue inside the pot.
After, I put the terracotta plate on top also using some hot glue to keep it from moving around. Both pieces are terracotta, so they are pretty heavy or at least heavy enough and don’t easily fall over.
I’m using it beside my pallets as a little plant stand/ coffee cup side table right now. This spot is lovely this time of year, not too hot but nice and sunny, perfect for a coffee break!
