Calling all plant ladies and DIY mavens! We’ve got a fun project for you all on our lifestyle blog today! And let us be the first to say, it is rad. Skybox Event Productions & The Flower Tray are bringing us this DIY living plant wall that you have to see to understand…. hanging vines, full ferns, and mossy greens make up this masterpiece.

Ngoc at Skybox Event Productions says, Plant walls ideas are pretty popular because they look inherently beautiful. Greenery lends an inviting organic look to a vertical garden. Our simple living wall is crafted from a mirror as a centerpiece and surrounded by organic flowing greens, and balanced by the wooden console that inimitable sense of warmth. With eco-consciousness and green design now becoming the ‘in’ trend, these stylish DIY ideas help in giving your interiors that amazing touch of natural goodness. Brilliant, audacious and fresh, living walls are indeed a great addition to any contemporary residence.

Instructions

1. Take measurements of the wall art area, make sure you know how big you want your art wall to be.

*Tip* When I first did the layout of the plants, I laid it on the floor and took pictures of different looks.

2. Source large window pane or mirror type window. Make sure to find something that you could attach containers and plants to.

3. Use blue painters tape and layout the vases before you attach them.

4. Use wrapped wire to attached small glass vases directly into the mirror.

5. Purchase a few ceramic pots to be hung on the wall. We drilled a hole into the small ceramic pots, using the 11/64” drill bit

*Tip* Not all containers can be hung.  Make sure to find containers with a flat back to lay against the wall.

6. Glue a small piece of Styrofoam into the containers to place artificial greenery

*Tip* Chose a mix of faux and real greenery for low maintenance
