If you don’t have a green thumb then Tillandsias, aka Air Plants, are your new best friends. They grow in, you guessed it, air, and therefore, don’t need to be planted in soil. All you have to do is soak them in water for about a minute, once a week and fertilize the water once a month. Easy enough right? Plus, you can do so many crafty things like situating them in unique objects or hanging them in clear glass globes. For the purpose of this post, I’m going to show you how to create indoor wall mounts. This project was super easy and you can modify based on the decor of your home.
3 pieces of wood
Sanding paper (if painting the wood)
Spray paint (if painting the wood)
3 air plants
Copper wire and needle nose pliers
Sawtooth picture-hanging hooks
Cut 3 square pieces of wood. If you can find some great old barn wood, it would look awesome to leave the wood in its natural state, otherwise, you’ll want to sand the wood to prep for paint. We used high gloss black spray paint since our kitchen features a lot of black accents. Spray paint the wood and leave to dry overnight.
Nail the sawtooth picture-hanging hooks to the backs of the wood. Next,mold the copper wire to create a half circle with two loops at each end. Your air plant will sit in this loop so make sure it’s not too big so that the plant falls through. Next, attach the copper wire to the wood with screws (that go through the loops that you’ve molded).
Hang the pieces of wood to the wall by catching the sawtooth hooks to a nail in the wall. Once the pieces of wood are up, carefully rest your air plants in the copper loops.
