These Kmart Hacks on TikTok Have Us Hooked on the Rattan Trend!


If you thought TikTok was all about being savage, bougie and ratchet, you’d be wrong. There’s countless dog videos, dancing firemen and this spectacular Kmart hacking goddess. Come see how together with Kmart and a few zip-ties, this lady hacks her way to a brilliant plant stand and more!

A $20 rattan-look plant stand? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

Kmart Hacks Hit TikTok…

Carolina McCauley shows us in just 17 seconds of a TikTok video clip how we can take one Kmart Faux Rattan Fruit Bowl ($8) and a Kmart Woven Tripod Stand ($12) and turn them into something completely different.

Simply secure the two items together with a few zip-ties to create a handy dandy plant stand. Not only a plant stand, but I can also see this making a kind of epic couch side table too. GENIUS!

Not only is Caroline a TikTok Kmart plant stand hacker we never knew we needed until now, but she can also turn her hand to a few other stellar hacks. This woman is my SOUL SISTER.

Take a peek below. I give you Caroline’s boho mirror DIY hack for under $10. Yes, UNDER TEN DOLLARS. Disclaimer: you will need to get on the tools, this one requires a hot glue gun.
