Zen Trellis for Under $35
I love the plant walls everywhere right now. I also love everything Zen. So I thought about it and decided I wanted to incorporate the two. But as usual I had budget restrictions. So off to my dollar stores I went. And this is what I came up with. Now I have a very interesting entrance to my house that is calming, contemporary, and awesome!
While at the dollar store I saw 10 tall bamboo sticks. Since they were only $0.99 I figured they would be perfect. I also purchased black wire for a dollar. I laid out the sticks in a trellis pattern.
Next I cut the wire into 12 inch pieces. I did a diagonal double wrap then crossed on the opposite diagonal twice on both and twisted in the back to secure.
This is a close up of the criss cross tie.
Next it was time to spray paint. I chose a matte charcoal.
While the paint was drying I hot glued floral foam (also from the dollar store) into 6 in plastic pots. These were $0.99 at Target.
I then stapled the pots to the bamboo trellis. I stapled about four to five times to make sure they were secure.
Last, I cut the grass segments from The wire bunch. I used three segments per pot.
I laid some large rocks that were in another place in my yard where I wanted to put the trellis. I think it really gives it that extra special Zen feeling. Voila! Leaned it against the wall for the finished product. Absolutely love it. Totally changed the entry to my door!
