Stacked Terra Cotta Pot Plant Stand

I am looking for instructions how to make an upright plant stand out of terra cotta pots. I have seen them at flea markets and craft shows in TX. I think they have a steel rod that goes through the hole in the bottom and the pots are kind of zig zagged. I don't know how else to explain it. I never examined one close enough to really see how it was held together. They were like 5 feet tall. Thank you!

I think these are called Topsy Turvey pots. Just Google it and you'll get a ton of directions on how to make them.

They are called tipsy pots. I agree they are cute, I had quite a spectacular one last year and am excited about planting it again this year. You can google tipsy pots for the instructions.

There is a metal stand available to make a stack for your porch or deck. Also, I saw a hanging pole in 2 sizes. Very affordable, I paid $10.00 for mine and got instructions.
