Unique DIY Trellis Project Idea For Indoor Plants

A trellis is an trendy way to display your indoor climbing or vining potted houseplants. It's also a great way to tame those long, trailing vines into a manageable shape. If you’re a plant lover, you’ll love the way this trellis will put your plants on display.

I was searching for a more unique trellis for my Stephania Erecta plant. Since I couldn't find one, I decided to make my own DIY plant trellis. Come DIY with me!

How to Make a Unique Trellis : Video Tutorial

In this video, I’ll show you how to create a rainbow inspired trellis that will help you tame your favorite trailing plants and put them on display.

How to create a Trellis with any shape:

  1. Using pen and paper sketch out the idea you want to create. Try different iterations to explore constructability! I wanted a rainbow inspired trellis that just consisted of one piece of wire so I had explore different ways of bending the wire.

  2. Measure and cut the wire. (The length should account for the trellis plus the length of the support stakes.)

  3. Shape the wire by hand or use circular objects as a guide. (I find that pots make purrfect guides)

  4. Wrap twine around the wire as a finishing touch.

  5. Stick it into the houseplant of your choice!

In my video, I used 55 inch length of wire to make a 6in diameter hoop trellis for my Stephania Erecta! I grew this plant from zero leaves. (Proud plant mom!) You can check out my journey here.
