DIY Brass and Wood Airplant Holder

15 Minutes

Do you love all the airplants that you see? I love the look of them. I decide to make a few adorable brass holders for mine and they turned out so cute. For a fifteen minute project, you seriously can't beat it and when they aren't holding plants... place it on top of books or on a coffee table.
Personally, mine ended up in my formal dining room and I just love them. See how I styled and used them HERE.

First things first, gather your supplies. You will need:
Tape Measure or Ruler
Brass Piping (found in the craft section)
Floral Wire (preferable gold - same color as piping)
Wood Beads with small hole
Wire snips
Craft Pipe Tube Cutter (found next to the craft brass piping)

Cut three pieces of your piping to 4". Follow directions on the pipe cutter to do this (usually you just place the pipe piece in between the cutter and turn a wheel to cut the pipe in half). Cut three pieces to 6".

Unravel a good size piece of wire and string on three pipe pieces (the 4" pieces). Wrap the wire together to form a triangle.
*When you make your triangle connect - wrap tightly but don't bunch the wire. You want the wire to look seamless so one firm wrap around is good.

Add two 6" pieces of brass piping to the wire.

Take the wire and connect it to an opposite corner (see above).
Thread your wire through the last 4" piping that doesn't have a 6" connection on it. Pull it up and place your last 6" pipe on. Add wood beads if you want them. Connect the wires at the top to form your triangle.

Place an airplant in the middle and call it a day. Since air plants don't require soil - you could even hang these brass pieces from a window or ceiling.

Get creative with them whether they are hanging from a spot in your house or on a bookshelf, table or bar cart. There are so many great options for them - I know you'll find one that works perfectly for you.

If you haven't seen airplants around you - don't worry! I buy most of mine online and this is my go-to store favorite ! They are affordable, always in amazing condition and ship fast. You'll love them.
