1. Cut the wooden boards
The first step in creating your new homemade hanging planter is to make the square supports that, joined by ropes, will serve to hold the pots. Create as many as you want, adjusting the height of the planter to the space you have. In this case, as it is designed for a room with a fairly high ceiling, it consists of five levels. If yours is lower or just fits you more, you can do it with fewer floors.
Start by measuring the diameter of the tops of the pots you are going to use. Add about 8 centimeters to that measurement and make wooden squares – as many levels as you want your planter to have – with sides of that length. The idea is that each wooden base is slightly larger than the total diameter of the pot.
To cut, use a jigsaw and a specific saw blade for wood, selecting a medium speed so as not to damage the material. If you need to, fix the wood with a sergeant to make the job easier.
