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, so if you’re interested in joining a live crochet-along, see the sign up form at the end of this post!
This project starts with some thrifted yarn and two sizes of loose-leaf binder rings.
Creative Craft Blog Hop
It’s time for another blog hop! I’m excited to share the fun and crafty creations of 12 other bloggers. If you are visiting from Zucchini Sisters, welcome! I just love the fabric covered Easter eggs that Rebecca shared!
At the very bottom of this post, I’ll be directing you to the next stop on this venture. But don’t forget to check out the other stops too. Be sure to drop back in throughout the week to visit them all!
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.
Then you can add the second ring and bring them together.
Because it adds to the structure, the rings are integral to holding the shape.
Add Your Favourite Air Plants
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.
They look pretty great in odd-numbered groupings.
But you can also display them as singles and add them to any metal surface, like this fridge, with a magnetic knob.
Every space brightens up with a little green – even the kitchen!
