Air Plant Pods – Green your Decor!

These air plant holders, aka air plant pods, are great for displaying your air plants anywhere you’d like to hang them, like in a window or even on the fridge. I love thinking up new and different ways to display air plants (like this cement planter and air plant holder DIY. I think they’d be a great gift for mother’s day!

This project starts with some thrifted yarn and two sizes of loose-leaf binder rings.

Air Plant Holders

I wish I had a cone of every colour under the rainbow of this thrifted yarn The yarn is Egyptian cotton made in Greece and has a glorious sheen.

Start by attaching yarn to the smaller ring.

You might think the split in the ring would be problematic, but it actually helps keep the stitches even on both sides.

Air Plant Holders Shaping

After several rows of increases and decreases, the pocket starts to take shape.

As a result of the depth and shape of the pocket, these pods will hold any air plant you desire! If you line these with plastic, you could even plan succulents into these if you wanted to!

Green is my favourite colour. However, can you imagine these in other fun, bright colours? Since in this case I’m using only one solid colour, they’re a fun addition to a piece of colourful fused glass artwork hanging in our window.
