Hanging Air Plant holders for my wife!

“Honey,” she said, “I want to hang air plants in our window”

“TO THE GLOWFORGE!” I shouted.

And here they are!

I drew the geography in Inkscape with 10 mm strokes, and then converted the strokes to path so that they were more modifiable.

The two horizontal pieces are the same size in all of them and they served as a basic measuring tool to make sure I had the right sizes to match the others.

You can see the round one is a bit unbalanced, but that’s ok for now :smiley:

Just ran across this post in a search. What thickness is this and are they sealed to be able to mist the air plant? I had someone asking for them and wanted to figure out how to make them last. Thanks! I just love these.

This person has not been around the forum for a couple of years. This looks like 1/8" material to me.

ok thank you. Thats what I had cut mine with too. Any idea about sealing them?

They are not sealed, no, but a clear sealer would probably work?
I used 3.18mm plywood

Thank you! Are they watered off of the hanger? I was just concerned about them warping.

Welcome back!

They haven’t warped yet!
You could also make them out of acrylic, too!

They would add a lot to my window in acrylic. However I’d probably use faux plants - I kill everything, even air plants.

Yes, I was thinking the acrylic would be nice too, but my friend liked the wood. I am throwing some extra clear on it and hoping for the best.

I agree. I think thats what I am going to do as well.
