Preamble
Building a tripod for hanging a cast iron cauldron planter with chains

A few years ago my uncle gave to me an old large rusty cast iron cauldron. It have been used for making soap a century ago.

Also, I had stocked a vintage industrial chains in my shed.

We can reuse these old cast iron cauldrons and chains to make beautiful flower hanging planters.

Build a tripod from logs of wood and that's it!

It's a good idea for a giving a country or vintage look to a garden!
