an old or thrifted leather (or pleather) belt
a hot glue gun (my sweet hubs just got me this one and I love it)
a small screw driver or something else with a sharp point
jute, twine or string
I just so happened to have a belt in a bag for goodwill so I grabbed it out and started work. Mine? Clearly pleather...
First, I cut the buckle off:
Then I cut the belt in half to get two pieces.
Find the center and lay the pieces perpendicular to each other. I hot glued the pieces to each other.
Next, I used my small screw driver to poke holes at the ends of each piece. I made sure to place the holes a little bit away from the edge so that the holes wouldn't rip out easily.
Once I made the hole, I strung the jute through and tied a knot or two.
On the inside of the belt I hot glued the knot and the extra string to give myself a little more assurance that the knot wouldn't come out or come loose.
One long string connected the ends of one piece and another string of the same length, connected the other piece of belt. You can see it in the picture below. One string for the horizontal belt part and the other string for the vertical section. If this doesn't make sense, let me know.
After I connected the second piece of string, I tucked the plant inside and just opened up my curtain rod and slid the strings over it. No holes in the ceiling, no permanent damage, just a cute, happy, alive-for-now plant.
I didn't even re-pot it. This is the cheap plastic pot the plant came in. Imagine how much cuter if the pot was painted or something.
It's just what this little space needed. Such a quick and easy DIY.
What do you think? Do you have a curtain rod that could use a little hanging plant love? I'd be so happy to see if you make one. Let me know!
