actually what my grandfather did was something similar for my sisters wedding. Instead of buying several and taking them apart she bought one very simple one and they worked on a few variations and ended up with this. He actually just used a small really light weight pipe. I don’t think it would hold a ton of weight but we did put hanging baskets with flowers on them after the wedding. Before you buy anything make sure that you can get the materials cheaper than actually buying hooks. Had my grandfather not been using some materials he had left over from another project the cost would have been equal or greater than just buying them retail.

picture…I hope! This is exactly what it end up looking like and instead of the pomander she had lanterns on them. They aren’t perfect but they were free.

 

He used a type of tubing for the base and then what started out as a rod for the hook and he has a bender thing that he used to get the shape.

I’m planning on having the same thing for our indoor aisle. I think we’re going to buy pots and fill them with either sand (first choice, but if that doesn’t work) or cement and putting the hooks in there. Then I will probably put moss or something to cover the sand or cement.

Haven’t tried it yet, so keep your fingers crossed for me!
