Hi! This is Diana for and today we are making a copper plant hanger for your backyard. Now I'm going to make the little tendrils that come off the main foundation frame and I have about 18 inches to 2 feet of my quarter inch copper tubing and I am going to twist that into what I think a little tendril would look like if a vine was actually growing on the fence. My design takes two of them so I made two of these and with the small quarter inch tubing, I am also going to make the little ring that holds the pot on to the main structure so you need to have your pot ready and measure how big the circle should be to hold your pot, like this so I am going to put my copper tube around the pot and see how long that should be and then I am going to cut that off right there with my pipe cutter.
