1. Draw the diameter of the pot's open side on the PVC. Cut the circle and then cut a cross in the center of it. Start cutting the inside of the circle to create a ring through which the pot fits to pass and yet doesn't fall from its tip.

2. Calculate the distance between the spot from which you want to hang your pot and the one you want it to float. You can hang it from eg. a pre-existing nail/ one you put yourself, an exposed pipe, from your bookcase. Then cut 2 pieces of string with twice the length of the calculated one + 3cm. Pass the strings around the PVX ring and make a knot of the 4 ends.

3. Put the plant in the pot, hang it and adjust the string around the ring so that the plant hangs with your desired angle.

If you want a more convenient construction to give a boost chloroflyllis in your area, why not try these balls of moss? Now for the Christmas season is so beautiful!

4. You can secure the edge of the pot with a bit of Blu-tack on the surface behind it to avoid shaking.

If you want to try another idea for hanging plants, what's about this garland with moss balls? It's perfect for Christmas seasona and any season.

So simple and easy. How do you hang pots and plants in your home? I would love to see your ideas. Please tell me in the comments below. Happy crafting!
