How to Make a Crochet Plant Holder!

For my plant holders, I decided to use a succulent, but any plant would work great! I figured that the succulent might last a little longer than a traditional flower.

After I crocheted up the holders, I used a printable tag from my friends over at Pineapple Paper Company to complete my project! I attached each one to a toothpick with some washi tape and then stuck them in the pot!

Next, I had each of my children sign their tag and give them to their teachers! Sounds super easy, right?

  1. Hi Krista. What a great project!
    If I want to use a 6″ pot, where do I double the stitches? Do I start off with 20 SC continue on with directions as written with ( ) stitches being different or something else?
    Thanks for sharing your talent.

    1. Hi Eyvonne!

      Thank you for the kind words. 🙂 I would crochet it like you suggested. Start with 20 stitches and crochet it as written. 🙂

      Happy crocheting!
