Hi Lynda: How big and what type of plant? Do you want one that the plant sits on the top or one that will fit into a hole or ring? You can get a lot of small tables at a thrift store to use a plant stands, and some people have taken old wooden chairs, cut a hole in the centre of the seat and put plants in there. But, if you are intent on building your own, here are some sites that may help:

Hi! What would you like to make it from? How tall? Do you have an old stand, chair or even a box that could work for you? This summer I had all my plants out on the porch, and I used two small tables to put them on. I protected the wood one with a tray and staggered the height of the plants on the other table by using containers and even a bed riser to display them. It was great and now I wish I had taken pictures! Good luck!
There are lots of ways to build one, but you may want to consider repurposing an old ladder as a plant stand.
I built a plant stand using 2 pairs of shutters that I picked up at Habitat for Humanity. Each set still had the hinges intact so I used L Brackets to secure the other two sides. I spray painted it white and it looks pretty good. It took 2 cans of paint. I have some faux ferns in it right now. Good luck Lynda. I hope you are well.

Where do you want to site it?
You could just make a table or a box. Not sure if it is for one plant or a number of plants. Inside or outside?
