How to Make Arms and Legs For Flower Pot People -:

String together each arm and leg separately -: Use sturdy non-rotting rope (such as nylon) that is heavy enough gauge to easily work with. Plus it does need to withstand years in the outdoor elements.

Allow at least triple the amount of rope for each arm and leg-: Not only do you have to tie knots for each pot you use, you also need extra left over to attach to the torso. 

Keep a little bit of space between each pot as you build arms and legs -:

This can be accomplished by either:

  • Using rope that is thick enough so when you tie a knot, it won’t slip through the drainage hole; or
  • Using a piece of stick, a large washer or similar object that you can tie a knot around. The object will act as a “stopper” and not slip through the drainage hole.

Determine the spacing you want between each pot. Add a knot as you thread on each consecutive pot.

**TIP: After you’ve got the first pot strung, slip the cord up through the 2nd one. Decide the space you want between the pots. MARK (with a felt pen or similar) the cord where it comes out from the TOP of the second pot. Remove 2nd pot from cord. Now you can tie a knot where you marked the cord and slip the pot back on. If you like the spacing, measure where the knot is tied and proceed for the rest of the arms and legs –  ‘Artistic Garden’ Website
