DIY Flower stand – use an old wooden ladder and give it a new function
To make a DIY flower stand , open the wooden ladder and measure the length and width of the rungs. If the rungs are too narrow to hold a flower pot or a planter, you must renew it. Insert a wide wooden plank on each level. Secure the wooden extensions with screws. For stability, use four screws on each level, two per side.
DIY beautiful garden decoration
Use a fine sandpaper to smooth the surface of the wooden ladder. Paint the ladder in a color that complements the decor of the deck or, if placed outside, the color of the house or the garden.
An old wooden ladder – a charming accent in the decor
Arrange new shelves inside the pyramid of the open wooden ladder. You can use anti-slip stickers to keep the bottoms of the flower pots in position. If possible, choose ones that add a decorative element to the DIY flower stand. For example, a floral theme will fit well.
