Back to How To....    |   How to Build a Five Pot Hanger



As gardeners, our space is at a premium for plants.  This hanger hangs from the eave like a hanging basket, but will hold five 6” pots in one spot.  All you need to make this is a 5/8X6X4’ cedar fence post.

First, draw a line down the center of the entire post.

Go down 1 3/4 inch and drill a 1/4” hole to hang the holder by.

Now, go down another 1 3/4 inch.  Mark two and a half inches off on the center line.  Go over one inch and mark two inches off from the top of the first mark.  From the bottom of the two inch mark, draw a line to the edge of the board.  From the bottom of the two and one half inch mark, mark six inches down at the edge of the board.  Draw a line from the bottom of the two and one half inch line to the six inch mark at the edge of the board.  It should look like this:



At the bottom of the six inch line, make a mark on the center line.  Draw the same assembly as before, but on the other side of the center line.  It will look like this:

Continue drawing these assemblies until you have five.  Now cut out the waste pieces.  The finished piece looks like this:

Hang the board up and insert the lip of a six inch pot in each assembly for holding.
