我妻子最近移植一个杂草丛生的拍摄of her favorite orchid into a new larger pot. The problem is that our flower rack holds a limited number of flowers, strictly according to the number of areas it has. And there were a little more flowers.
But I figured out how to save the situation and made a hanging leather orchid planter. Moreover, the location of the various areas just makes it easy to link.
Step 1: Materials & Tools
- A flower pot with a saucer - will not be damaged during the work :)
- Metal ring with an inner diameter of about 15mm
- Grinding knife
- Just a sharp knife (or rotary)
- BEVeller 1mm.
- 铆钉 - 我头部7毫米
- Protective agent for skin and brush for application. I took Elixir from Kenda. It practically does not change the color and texture of the skin and quite well helps from water
Step 2: Marking Up the Straps
Step 4: Marking the Ring
The strip should wrap around the top (wider) part of the pot. It is also worth considering that the strip itself should overlap by about 15-20mm.
Step 5: Thining
Carefully cut the strip according to the mark made in the previous step.
So that the overlap is not conspicuous, you need to thin the ends of the strip.
Thin the left and right edges by approximately the width of the overlap. For the process to go neatly and easily, the knife must be very sharp.

We mark the places for the holes.
We punch all the holes marked in the last step. Diameter 2mm.
Thus, we have 4 strips of about 250 mm in length.
Step 9: Rounding the Corners
Round off the corners on one side of each strip. This side will be attached to the metal ring.
Step 10: Thining
Step 11: Bottom Holes
Alternative: Try one strip on a large metal ring, mark in place. Transfer the markings to the remaining strips.
Punch holes 2 mm in diameter.
Step 12: Temporary Assembly
We assembly the cross from a metal ring and leather strips.
We transfer the markup from the previous step to all other strips.
Looking from the edge with the holes already punched, I have the following hole placement:
10 mm - > 50 mm - > 179 mm - > 214 mm
We mark the rounding at a distance of 12-15 mm from the last hole.
Step 15: Round Off
With a sharp knife, round off the stripes according to the markings from the last step.
If it does not work out very smoothly, you can touch up with sandpaper.
Step 16: Chamfering
We punch holes on all strips.
The outermost hole should be about 8 mm, the hanger will be inserted into it.
Step 18: Marking the Hanging Strips
倒角the long sides of our straps. We do this both from the front and from the seamy side.
Step 21: Moisture Protection
All leather parts that we have are evenly coated with a moisture protection agent.
You need to cover from all sides. I highly recommend that you read the instructions for your product. And not just get acquainted, but also use the knowledge gained when applying :)
When everything is well dry, you can put everything together.
First, the cross is assembled, then a leather ring is riveted to it.
Step 23: If Suspension Leather
- take a strip
- 打结from the edge
- insert the strip into a free loop on the planter (from the outside to the inside)
- thread the strip into a small metal ring
- again thread the strip into a small metal ring, but in the opposite direction
Repeat for the second strip the same thing again.
Step 24: If Suspension Rope
Step 25: Наслаждаться
Everything worked out, which means now you can add almost 2 times more plants to the rack with flowers than it was originally designed :) Tropical jungle nearby.
May there be more beauty in the house!
