I didn't make mine, but am actually thinking I'd like to. I've used ready-made rings...and what I don't like about them is they usually overhang the pot edge. Like I have a 6" pot, but it's an 8" ring, then other plants are growing through/into the wrong ring. What I do like about them is - buy, install, repeat. Simple.

I've also used these flower supports for a wayward unruly pitcher or flower stalk: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085S ... UTF8&psc=1
I've actually been thinking of trying to create something like I use for some of the larger flowering plants in my garden, basically kind of a U-support, and then if you put two in a pot, you've created a ring. If/when I get around to trying this, I'll reply here with results, but this looks somewhat similar to what I'm imagining, just not 9.8"W (Also, I haven't actually used something like this, and I don't think it needs to be interlocking): https://www.amazon.com/LEOBRO-Plant-Sup ... 148&sr=8-2
I think they'd be easier to install too - not a hoop with connected stakes, just a simple U to scoop the plant into submission. That's it - you've inspired me to get off my butt to do some beta testing. I'll be back with updates, but maybe this has given you some ideas of your own - I'd love to see what you come up with!
