Use a drill with a 1/2" glass/tile bit to drill holes in the centers of all four saucers (soak the saucers in water and drill straight down from the top to keep them from cracking).
Invert the 8" saucer and place underneath the 12" saucer. Attach both saucers at the bottom using a hex nut and washer above and below.
Attach the 6" saucer and the 4" pot at the top of the rod using a washer and a hex nut at the bottom and a washer and cap nut inside the pot at the top.
Adjust the saucer heights as desired by moving the hex nuts and washers up or down. Wrap twine around the threaded rod; tie at the end. Place additional 4" pots filled with your favorite plants on the saucers.
For a different look, try painting the saucers or leaving the metal rod exposed.
