Well here are the end results! Wicker plant stand finished. It has a few flaws.....I need to get the holes for the wires closer to the edge of the wood......I need thicker wire for the legs, altho I did double wrap them and they look better but would be a little sturdier with thicker wires. Other than that I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks Casey!

I'm showing the stand next to the cord that I used. That one back leg on the right looks a little wonky in the doesn't in real life so must be the angle....hummmmm.

Now I wonder if I could make a chair.....and no way am I taking apart the one I won from you Casey....oh my. That chair is awesome. Here's a picture of that chair in a scene I created for it.

Don't forget to poke the pictures to make them larger!

 I'd destroy it if I took it apart.....but for some things.....don't you find yourself wanting to take something apart just so you can see how they did it? I've wanted to do that before but usually chicken out since I don't want to destroy the one I have! HA!

Have a wonderful day! I'm off to look for the next project to work on........


  1. Awesome. I love it. I've been putting off trying wicker. I already have a few different color of wax linen but I can't decide what to make. I think one of my old miniature magazines had a tutorial for a wicker chair but I'll have to see if I can find it. I'll let you know if/when I locate it.


  2. Wow what a brilliant first attempt it looks gorgeous. Can't wait to see where you decide to put it.

  3. It turned out wonderful! Any thoughts on what you plan to put inside of it?

  4. Wow...that is wonderful. Even better for a first try.

  5. You did a fabulous job!

    Casey is a real gem. :)

  6. and you should be proud. It looks perfect...and photos never lie!

  7. Thank you everyone for all the special comments. Now I can't wait to see those that all of you are are going to try it aren't you?

  8. Carol I think I'm going to try filling it with some various species of greenery. Some trailing vines too I think. We'll see what I can do since plants aren't really my favorite thing to do. I've made some in the past using painted masking tape and wire...I may try some of that. If I ever get it done I'll post another picture. And Janice I'm not sure where I would put it. I really don't have a place for it but I may give it as a gift to a mini friend.
