Copper is everywhere these days. A quick walk around a home decor store these days and you’ll come across plenty of copper decor pieces: everything from vases to frames to figurines! As a chemical engineer myself, I have some familiarity with pipes, but really, this tutorial is so simple & the supplies are so readily available that anyone can make this DIY Wall-Mounted Copper Pipe Planter!
Take a look at it! What do you think?
DIY Wall-Mounted Copper Pipe Planter
Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
1/2 inch copper pipe, about 10 feet long
ten 1/2 inch 90 degree copper elbows
three 1/2 inch copper wall mounts
two 1/2 inch copper pipe tees
copper pipe cutter
Here are the cuts you’ll need to make:
1 12″ long piece
1 8″ long piece
2 5″ long pieces
1 4″ long piece
3 3″ long pieces
2 2″ long pieces
2 1″ long pieces
Take a look at the picture below to see how to assemble this copper pipe planter. I labeled a few of the lengths to (hopefully) elucidate where each piece goes! Feel free to let me know if you have any specific questions.
Since all the pipe lengths and fittings are 1/2″, all the joints should fit together snugly. I didn’t add any extra glue or plumbing compounds.
Here’s what it looks like all together.
I used the wall mounts (three of them!) to hang this on the wall! This has been holding up fine for months now! (Yes, this post is a little late!)
I fill the little pipes with individual stems of real or artificial flowers! It’s a cute addition to my living room! And let’s face it… it’s definitely a conversation piece! 🙂
Have you made anything for your home with copper pipe?
