Make a cre­atively curvy hang­ing planter to show­case your favourite fo­liage.

What you’ll need

700 x 500 x 18mm ma­rine ply­wood; pen­cil; jig­saw; fine sand­pa­per; clear satin var­nish; drill; 50mm deck­ing screws; ceil­ing hook; jute twine

Here’s how

Draw the teardrop shape on the ply­wood. It’s about 670mm high and 475mm wide. Then, 50mm in­side this, draw a sec­ond shape mir­ror­ing the first, with a flat bot­tom about 220mm wide. Cut out the shape with a jig­saw and cut a 220mm wide cir­cle from the in­ner of­f­cut that will act as the plat­form for the plant. Sand all the edges smooth and ap­ply 2 coats of clear satin var­nish. Predrill then screw the cir­cle to the flat bot­tom with the deck­ing screws to cre­ate the plant plat­form. Hang from a ceil­ing hook us­ing jute twine.
