This clever little project uses metal clothes hangers to create a display for six pot plants with a very small footprint.

The project

 

I wanted to make a home for the cute little Bunnings pots.

First iteration.

Second version, with an extra coat hanger on each side and thin aluminium wire to serve as the holders. This enables the ferris wheel to accommodate taller plants. 

 

To join the hangers I used an electric soldering iron designed for gutters. I scraped the protective coating off the hanger metal, then soldered. The joins are holding up well.
