- Tape measure
- Small bowl (I got a white IKEA 365+ for $2.99)
- 8 yards of piping-like ribbon (the original used climbing or cotton rope, but I couldn't find a color I liked) *Depending on how low or high you want your plant to hang will determine your actual yards.
- Tiny rocks
- Extra soil (if needed)
First, cut your ribbon (or rope) into 8 equal pieces.
Then tie all the pieces together (this will be the bottom of the hanging "container") and divide them up into sections of two.
Step 3: Measure out 2.5 inches from the bottom and tie a double not for one sections of two. It might be useful to have someone around to use the ol' "press down your finger on the knot while I tighten" trick. Otherwise, you'll have to use your foot, fingers, and mouth like I did. I probably looked like I was doing some weird yoga move or something.
|Do this for each section of 2|
Now, separate the first sections of two and pair it with the pieces of ribbon next to it. This is what helps create the "web" part that will hold the bowl in place. I measured out 2 inches from the first set of knots and repeated Step 3.
I think it adds a little more color to the room. I am pleased with the results. I planned on making three all together, but I think I like the one - at least for now.
