You could also leave out the base and rather hang up your pots with a plastic grocery bag rope 

How to make yourself a plastic rope

what you will need

  • Plastic grocery bags

  • Scissors

What to do:

Cut the plastic bags into strips (whichever size you want). Just remember: the thinner the strips, the thinner the rope will be

Keep the width of the strips in a uniform size. Variations in thickness will make your tote pattern look bad and be weaker at some sections

  1. Group the strips into 3’s, and tie a knot at the top of each group

  2. Now start plaiting them by taking one strip on the side and bringing it to the middle, then doing the same with the other side. Continue until the end

  3. Once you have reached the desired length, you can make a knot again at the end. Push the knots through each side of the holes in the pot
