Make a Tabletop Plant Stand

One of the best ways to create an indoor jungle effect is to arrange plants of different heights together, but if you don’t have plants that naturally vary in height a lot, a shortcut is to use plant stands. Recently I came across this lovely desktop plant stand, looked at the price, and immediately started trying to figure out how to make my own. With some square wood dowels, plus lots of drilling, I built my own tabletop plant stand, and put together a tutorial.

A laundry chute may not sound that exciting, but I LOVE how it turned out! Ready to see it?
