How to Make an H-Shape Plant Stand Using Inexpensive Craft Store Letters
Two large paper-mache letter H's come together to make a midcentury-modern plant stand.
The base for this yarn-wrapped bohemian planter might surprise you. Here is a hint - what letter becomes between G and I in the alphabet?
- (2) paper mache letter H
- hot glue and hot glue gun
Use a craft knife or small hand saw cut one of the letters in half. Depending on the size of your planter, you have you might need to trim down the piece in the center.
Use hot glue to attach the two cut pieces to the sides of the intact letter H. This will create the base of the plant stand.
Start at the bottom of one leg to cover the plant stand with yarn. Coil the yarn and attach it with hot glue.
Continue up one leg of the plant stand until you reach the center. Trim off and glue down ends.
The center can be wrapped a couple of different ways. You can criss-cross for a bit of extra stability holding all the pieces together. Another option as seen on this DIY Midcentury Modern Inspired Plant Stand is to wrap the center section first and then wrap each leg from top to center.
Continue until the entire plant stand is covered with yarn and none of the paper mache is showing.
Insert a planter to fit inside the stand. Fill with your favorite foliage and display!
