When it comes to DIY projects, I prefer simple and affordable. I recently made over a cabinet to display my terra cotta pot collection, along with some faux plants. After doing so, I had the idea of making a rack to go alongside it that could display my watering can collection as well. Perfect project for Spring!
I started by finding a branch in my yard that I could break into the desired length. You can paint the branch or leave it wood for an authentic look. I decided to add color to mine for Spring. Any type of paint that you have lying around will work, but I actually used a FlexSeal Sealant in the terra cotta color. I wanted to show people how this could be used outdoors in a pool or garden area because it repels water.
I then went to Home Depot and found some plant hooks that were the perfect size. I measured the branch width beforehand to make sure they would fit. I also grabbed 2 hooks to screw into the wall to hold the branch. The plant hooks were only $2 a pack and came with 2 hooks. I spent $6 on those and around $6 dollars on the 2 that screwed into the wall. The branch was free so the total project, without paint, was around $15!
Seriously, the easiest DIY ever! What I love about this DIY is it can be used in so many different ways. Heres 1 rack styled 4 different ways to show you how versatile it is.
