DIY Geometric Himmeli Hanging Basket
Thanks to Monrovia for sponsoring today's post. My love for Monrovia plants is 100% true! All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
- Medium Gauge Picture Hanging Wire
- Metal or Hard PVC Tube
- Saw or Pipe cutter (if using metal)
- Shallow plastic bowl
- Gold Spray Paint (and sealer if needed)
Cut your plastic or metal pipe into (4) 17" pieces and (8) 11" pieces. Depending on the size of your bowl you might want to scale the measurements up or down a few inches. Lay out 2 of the 17" pieces and 2 of the 11" pieces to form a diamond shape. Leave about a foot extra wire coming out of the long ends of the 17" tubes.
Thread your wire through the tubes all of the way around the diamond shape. Create two identical shapes.
Feed the wire through an 11" tube and attach to both sides of one of the diamond shapes. Leave about 4 feet of wire coming through the end of one tube (you'll need to feed it through the additional 3 tubes in the next steps.)
Feed another piece of 11" tube onto the wire and attach opposite end to the side of the second diamond shape.
Attach another piece of 11" tube through the diamond shape as you did in step 3.
Attach end of tube to opposite side of first diamond shape and twist to secure.
Secure top and bottom ends of himmeli together with wire. Form a loop or hook with the excess wire coming out tops of the 17" tubes.
Spray paint in your choice of color. I wanted a tradition golden brass look so I used metallic gold by Design Masters.
Drill holes in the bottom of your bowl for drainage. Drill holes in sides of the bowl to attach onto himmeli. Use extra wire to secure bowl in place.
