A lovely decorated living space gives the feeling of a real home. All those personal touches are what give your home its personality and make it uniquely yours. Unfortunately, today we tend to look for abstract and lifeless decorations. We overlook decorating with living plants because caring for them is an additional responsibility and they can take up space that we don’t have.
Well, after looking at our amazing top ten plant stands DIY projects, you will become so enchanted with their simplicity, beauty, and how little space they occupy that you will want to make them for your home at once. Another great thing is that they can be made from recycled materials, so they are green in more ways than one.
Wood Plant Stand
Placing a potted plant on a table or on the floor of your small apartment might look like it is taking up too much space. But, if you elevate it on a stand, leaving space underneath it, like with this lovely wooden stand, then you create the illusion of free space and space will immediately look less crowded.
Modern Macrame Hanging Planter
If you’re looking for a spare space in your home, just look up… The ceiling is always empty, so use that space to hang a lovely plant from a delicate-looking rope net. To make your hanging planter look even better just add some wooden beads or other decorations to the ropes.
Instead of planting a plant in clay, plastic, or even concrete pot, that can give your home a heavier, more closed feel, put your plants in a see-trough, airy terrarium. If you’re good at welding, make this lovely tilted cube and if you aren’t you can always use a small aquarium.
