This is probably the most simple project we have featured. There are only three steps to create this cool plant stand, made from the wire frame of a lampshade.

Step one: Choose the shade size you want [ make sure the frame connects at the top and bottom ]. Pick one with an interesting shape and perhaps choose a few in different sizes.

Step two: Remove the fabric shade & cut off any excess parts you don’t need using wire cutters.

Step three: Spray the frame whatever colour you like and then ta da…its done!

We think these plant stands look best in black or white for a monochrome finish. But of course the choice is yours.
