Boho Fringe Tassel Plant Stand: A Trendy And CHEAP DIY Project For Plant Moms Everywhere
As a plant parent, you’re probably always on the lookout for stylish (and inexpensive!) ways to display your plant babies. Plant stands can get pretty pricey, especially the trendy modern/boho ones that we all drool over at Target or Home Goods; they sometimes range from $25-$75! Yikes. However, if you’re even just a little bit crafty, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the look you want! With just a few materials and a little time, we’re going to show you one of the easiest, cheapest, and chic-est plant stands that you can create for under $25!
What You’ll Need
- Tomato Cage
- Spray Paint
- Wire Cutters
- 1-3 Colors of Yarn
Start with your Tomato Cage (you can find these at Lowe’s for less than $2), and turn it upside down so that the widest side is on the ground and the stakes are sticking up. Use your wire cutters to snip off the long stakes so that they’re flush with the smaller end of the support.
Time to paint! Use your spray paint to evenly coat the tomato cage; you can use any color you’d like, but we’re using this metallic gold for the modern/boho-chic aesthetic we’re going for! Allow your plant stand to dry for about 30 minutes, or until the surface is no longer tacky.
Fold each strand in half, loop it over the top of the stand. Then, use the loose ends to go through the middle of that loop, and tie a knot-- you should end up with a tassel like this.
Repeat this all the way around the top in whatever pattern you choose, just be sure that each section has the same number of tassels.
When you’re done tying, find the center of each section, and trim the ends of the yarn up on each side at a 45 degree angle, creating a triangle-like point in each section.
Though this project is technically complete, if you want to add a little something to make it extra unique, you can pick up some metallic or glass beads from Michael’s and hang them along with your tassels for a more layered look!
