Reclaimed Wood Flower Pot Holder for the Junk Garden

I was lucky to get some old weathered wood boards from the neighbor last fall.

I used a few of them on this Christmas sign here.

Reclaimed Wood Terra Cotta Pot Holder Tutorial
Today I made a terra cotta flower pot holder with two more of the weathered boards.  We still have some snow on the ground so I am staging my potholder under my covered patio with faux plants.  I plan to lean the potholder against a sunnier house wall in about a month and a half!

Project Tutorial

The boards were joined by adding three small scraps of wood.  I didn't have to cut the weathered boards, mine were already the same size, 52 inches long.

 I purchased two two packs of 3" light strap hinges.

Also three 5-6" hose clamps.

Next position your hose clamps and strap hinges on the boards.  I attached the hose clamps with screws about 16 1/2" apart.  The strap hinges, are just for looks, and were placed near the top and bottom of the boards and about 3 inches above the pots.  Drill a hole through the hose clamp, and fasten with a screw.  Screw the hinges in as well with the screws provided in the package.

My pots are  5 1/2" tall and 6 1/2" across the top.  They fit perfectly in my hose clamps.  

I can't wait to get outside and REALLY plant!
