DIY tomato cages and then continue on to find her smaller version where she makes it a Mother's Day Centerpiece.Glancing up from my computer I thought my own ivy plant might be in need of an accessory.
|My ivy plant... beautiful. The plain old stick in the middle of |
the pot... ugly! Plus with my Updated Plant Stand I needed to
complete the entire project. And how perfect is this pot for this
project? It already has twine (or rope) wrapped around it.
A perfect fit!
|You don't need many materials for this one! Twigs and twine |
that's all, oh and a hot glue gun. I created 4 different stacks of
twigs. The 1st being the longest and then each stack going down
in size from there.
|I started by building one "wall" of the tower so I could |
be sure my measurements were correct. (You don't
want to make the tower first and then see if it fits in
the pot.) Use your hot glue gun to hold them in place.
|Next I brought out the twine and wrapped around each of the|
joints. I am not a knot expert so I have no idea what you
would call this but I wrapped them in a cross-cross pattern.
|Pull your longer pieces of ivy up through the top of the tower|
and let some of the shorter ones fall on the lower twigs and
you have an Ivy Tower!
