Create a modern geometric planter using items that you probably already have at home!

I've seen so many amazing geometric hanging planters on Pinterest. I love them all, but I don't really have a spot in my house to hang planters from the ceiling. So, I wanted to come up with a geometric look that could sit on a flat surface. I searched, but couldn't find anything that wasn't hanging. So, this is what I came up with!

I bought my supplies at none other but the dollar store! Did you know they have some pretty great craft supplies there? They have floral wire, pliers, floral foam, moss and some other stuff that is usually on the pricey side at the craft store. I was pretty excited to pick up some wire for only $1 and a big thing of straws.

I love displaying my faux succulents in these geometric planters! So simple and modern.

    Step 1

    start stringing wire through straws and twisting them together until I had 3 different shapes that were somewhat flat on the bottom.

    Step 2

    I did find that stringing multiple straws on a wire and then just bending it instead of trying to twist wires together at every junction made it go faster.

    Then, grab some metallic spray paint and cover the entire thing. I used a bronzy gold color and liked how they turned out.

I have a feeling these could be used for something other than planting. xD Maybe to set over drying crafts so nobody can just randomly touch them? Haha. But seriously, awesome awesome thing here! I really have to remember this for the future! you had a great idea. I had seen a glass case like this that set on a flat surface, but it wasn't a planter and it was nothing that I or anyone without high-tech abilities could make. So thank you so much for this! Super cool!
