Crafting is one of the oldest hobbies in existence. What I love about crafting is that I can do a whole range of activities with my own hands. It’s a great way to let my imagination flow to create something new out of simple materials.

I especially love to craft on rainy days. I light a candle,  grab a snack, and make a cup of tea. Last Sunday, I set aside a couple of hours for making two simple plant stands. It was a fun and easy project.

Growing up in Germany, Milka was my favorite chocolate. Stores would have an entire aisle of just Milka products. I loved it! In case you aren’t familiar with Milka; it’s one of Europe’s leading chocolate brands. It’s smooth and creamy, it just melts in your mouth.

My mom used to snack on Milka chocolate while knitting sweaters in our tiny German apartment. So when I heard that Walmart now carries OREO cookies coated in European Milka chocolate, I had to try it. It’s so good.

I love plants and wanted to make some simple yet modern stands for the coffee and kitchen table. I only needed a few materials, most of which I already had at home.

  • four wood sticks
  • wood glue
  • flower pots
  • gold spray paint (optional)
  • white paint (optional)

I used a miter saw to cut the pieces into desired length.  You’ll need a total of 12 pieces per stand.

  • Glue the pieces together so you have two squares.
  • Take four wood pieces and glue them to one square (see above photo).
  • Glue the second square to the top of the four pieces.
  • Scrape off any excess glue. You can also smooth it out with sand paper.
  • Leave the cube bare, or paint/stain it.

I spray painted the pots gold and used white, leftover paint for the stands.

You can get smaller pots with succulents and place them on your desk.

Or place a vase or mason jar inside the stand.

For me, crafting is also an amazing stress reliever. When I’m tired of my routine life and its everyday challenges, crafting helps me get engrossed in something creative that gives me inner joy and peace. In that sense, crafting is a wonderful relaxation therapy for my tired mind and body.

I know crafting helps boost my happiness, and I hope that you too have a hobby that brings you joy and allows life’s worries to fade away… if only for a brief time.
