The coming of spring makes me want gardening. I keep working in the backyard, but I also want to take care of the house plants. I get some new planters, and I wanted a plant hanger for a little mint plant. So I came up with an easy idea, adaptable at different plant pot sizes.

You will need a piece of leather (or faux leather), a plastic pot, a pair of scissors, a pencil, a ruler, some rope and a glue gun. I found the planter at Home Depot for 2 dollars.

Report the planter bottom circle shape on the back of the leather piece. Trace two perpendicular lines intersecting on the circle center. Measure the height of your planter. Report this dimension on each line, starting from the circle mark.

Draw a cross shape. Each end of the cross must measure about 1 1/2 in.

Cut your shape and leave a little extra leather at each arm of the cross.

Put a little glue on the edge and fold following your mark. Don’t glue it completely, you need to slip a rope in the folds.
