DIY Living Wreath


I wanted a little something to dress up our garage door and provide a bit of inspiration.
I gathered a grapevine wreath and a few packs of tiny terra cotta pots and got to work securing them on the wreath.
A few plants from the garden center later, and I had a great bit of greenery to brighten up the garage near my chicken coop!
Full post and instructions are listed on my blog:
A combination of hot glue and twine worked to secure the pots.

    I tried this wreath with succlents but could not plant in the pots that were upside down as the plants always fell out? and watering them was a pain. would like to know what plants you planted in them. also thought of ground cover plants??

    Shirley- I bought my plants in the fall, and selection was very limited. There are two types of ivy- english, and some other kind. The pink thing is a pink splash polka dot plant. I bought three small containers- one of each type, and divided them up amongst the planters. You can see in the photos above that I also had to leave some of the upside down ones empty, but I added moss in between to green it up a bit. Watering WAS somewhat of a pain, until I began using the hose on shower setting to gently drip water onto them.
