So apparently it's Plant Week on the blog. Like Shark Week except much more fast-paced and thrilling.
I shared my take on a succulent wreath Tuesday (so far it's still alive though the moss seems to dry out super quickly so I've been misting it with water often). And today I am sharing how I created an air plant display. I've seen these all over the place. Here are some awesome ones. And this is great too. I decided to make my own version while at Jo-ann's last week because the office walls need a little something.
I bought wood plaques at Jo-ann's and stained the front side. Then I added a hanger to the back and drilled two holes in the center.
Into the holes I stuck some twisted copper wire (picked up in the jewelry section of Jo-ann's).
The little loop is perfect for my plant to hang out in.
This was easily a six minute project (not counting waiting for the stain to dry) and the most expensive part was the air plant (I grabbed mine at this local gem of a plant store but you can purchase them online too).
There are 100 schools of thought on what's the best way to care for air plants. I am going to give mine a bath in the sink every 10 days or so. I've had the most success when I let them fully dry upside down after their bath to avoid rot. Again... I'll keep you posted on how this guy does.
