If you love the look of succulent plants and want to incorporate them into your decor at The Verona at Silver Hill Apartments, there are a number of stylish and creative ways to do so. Instead of planting a succulent in the usual pot, try something a bit more unique by using this fun tutorial for a DIY wall planter.
- Start with a shallow wooden box. Think an old drawer, an antique crate, or even a picture frame with wood behind it for reinforcement.
- Cover the surface of the box with chicken wire or galvanized mesh. Use a staple gun to attach it to each side, and be sure to snip off the sharp edges.
- Add a strip of wire used for hanging photo frames to the back. Be sure to choose something that can handle heavy weight.
- Add soil specifically formulated for succulents. Fill it completely to the top of the chicken wire.
- Plant your succulents. Position them in between the squares in the wire.
- Water once, and then let the whole thing sit flat in the sun for four to six weeks. This will enable the succulents have time to root before hanging.
- Hang on a wall that can handle the weight of the plants. Choose a place with a stud behind it, or add a shelf underneath for added support.
