I have no idea where to buy them but they are definitely copper piping. They would probably be pretty easy to DIY if you know anyone with a pipe cutter. You would just cut and sand the edges before installation. Try searching “copper pipe plant stand”

I’d start by asking your florist–i liked a unique idea for my arbor and mentioned it to my florist that I was gonna DIY it (I had costed out the materials and it’d cost me $80 plus carpentry talent.. which Im not sure I had)  and she totally was like “I’ll just make that and rent it to you for $40” “seriously???” “yeah im sure other brides will rent it too, its a great idea”

so there you have it, saved me time and money by just asking.

(for those curious–it was just nice looking, kind of boho/natural, wooden boxes to put big arrangements on, so that the arrangements are higher up.)

You could DIY but depending on how many you need to make, and how high you want them, they could end up costing a pretty penny – copper is expensive (assuming you use real copper pipes, I don’t know what alternatives there are, if any?)

The cheapest 12′ length of copper pipe available here is 1/2″ in diameter and costs $30. That would make your four uprights for a 36″ high stand. You would still need the shorter pieces for the top and the bottom, and all the connecting elbows.

Cutting copper pipe is easy. You just attach the cutter and spin it around until the pipe is cut through. The cutter itself only costs about $15.

You could try making one from plastic pipe then spay paint it copper.
