Stand made of natural material

Yes, yes, natural material, namely part of the trunkany tree, can serve as an excellent base for a flower stand made by yourself. It is best to do this with a barrel with thick branches located approximately at the same level (ring around the trunk). But if the branches are not so flat - not scary: so the stand will look even more original. So, for the stand under the flowers we will need:

  • a wooden log with branches-branches;
  • scraps of plywood (areas for flower pots and for the base of the stand);
  • Screws, some of which plywood will be attached to the chump;
  • sandpaper;
  • varnish for work on wood.

First we prepare a log: we will remove the bark from it, we will clean up the rotten places and we will erase the surface of the trunk and branches with sandpaper. Now it is necessary to saw out the plywood base (round or rectangular), the size of which should be sufficient for the stability of the stand. By the number of branches we cut out round or rectangular details from the plywood sheet, which will become grounds for flower pots. The size is determined based on the overall height and width of the future stand. The edges of the plywood scraps are also cleaned with sandpaper, and after that level the bottom of the barrel and screw the plywood base to it. Having established a support on an equal surface, we define an angle of a cutting of tops of twigs. Note that the surface of the spills must be parallel to the floor. Saw the branches to the desired height and level the spills with sandpaper. It remains to fix the plywood parts with screws, laying them on the spigots of branches. After these works are finished, we take any varnish for wooden surfaces and cover them with a stand. That's all - our exclusive stand for flowers is ready! stand for flowers with your own hands

Stand from stairs

From the old (even broken) ladders tooAn exclusive stand made by own hands will turn out. Which exactly (wooden or metal) ladder will turn into a stand for flowers - it does not matter. So, we take the ladder, estimate its height and if necessary we file the legs or even listen to the lower steps. Now push the ladder and fix the legs. At metal stairs they are fixed automatically, and for a wooden ladders it is possible to use a lath, nailing it between the legs. The base of the stand (or even the stand itself) is almost ready. If the steps of the ladder are wide, then leave them as they are, and on the narrow steps we put the shelves cut from plywood (sheet of fiberboard or hardboard) and attach them with nails, screws or glue. Now proceed to the decor. Especially not philosophizing, you can simply paint the stand with fresh paint. And, here, too, it is permissible to show your wild imagination by painting the stand in different colors or even drawing patterns on it. And for more advanced craftsmen, a more sophisticated method of decoration, namely, decoupage technique, is also suitable.
