    My parents were out in Wyoming on a hunting trip this fall. When they returned home my dad told me that my mom spotted a plant holder while they were out there, that she really liked. He said that it was a steel ring that the pot of a plant sat in that had some horseshoes welded to it, with some chain to hang it from. I didn't have a picture to go by, so I came up with this. I welded all the chain links togather to form a ring to hold the pot. Then attached three horseshoes and chains, that all connect (welded so they won't slip off) to a top horseshoe for the support hook.

    I'm just kinda going by what he described the plant holder to me as. Is there any improvements I should make to it, before I give it to her on Chrismas, or just leave it the way it is?

    I love it. The only think I would be concerned about is if the links attached to the hanger shoe would come off? If not it is perfect and I would also purchase such a thing, especially for my pation hanging plants!!!

    That looks great. The only reason to change would be if your Mom requested so. [​IMG]
