DIY Rustic Modern Plant Stand

I enjoy mixing rustic wood with more modern accents, and created these DIY plant stands for less than $10 and under 20 minutes! The copper legs are made from copper pipe hooks purchased at the hardware store, the wood slice was purchased with a coupon at Michaels, and the "legs" were screwed into the wood using hanger tape. This plant stand is very similar to my rustic stand, only it cost even less, and was even easier to make! Of course you could always slice up some wooden tree stumps to use instead. You can view the full post and tutorial over on my blog.

Copper Pipe Hooks were used to create the "hairpin" style legs. I squeezed them together while the hubs screwed them into the wood slice with hanger tape.

DIY Rustic Modern Plant Stand - We made this plant stand before we made the rustic "stool" so we had used one piece of hanger tape per leg, however, using 2 pieces per leg {one per end} is actually easier and better in my opinion.

    What an amazing idea for diy hairpin legs! I’ve been wanting to do something similar to this but couldn’t make myself pay for a few legs what it would cost to just go out and buy a stand from a store. Thank you so much!
