Then fun part off this project was I had everything on hand! Love when that happens. It started with a piece of drag that I had laying in my basement. I had found it for 2.00 at an antique store in my town.
DIY Plant Wall for a Small Space
Hello! I am crazy about plants. I have them all over my home. I always looking for ways to incorporate them into my home. Today I am sharing a quick and Easy DIY plant wall that I made for our guest room.
I took a piece of sand paper to knock off the worst of the rust and then used rust-oleum spray paint in matte black to cover the rust. I used two coats and let it dry overnight.
I had several feet of felt leftover from another project and it turned out to be perfect for this project. I need something to hold the plants that water would not bother too much. It is a heavier gauge felt and has a lot of strength to it.
I used leather cording to "stitch" the felt together. Then used the same cord to tie it to the metal drag- old fencing would be great for this too.
Next step was to add the plants.
I made four felt pouches for the plants.
Then I used the same leather cord at the top to hold the wall planter. Once I had added my easy care plants it was ready to go. I did realize after the first round of watering that since I didn't want to remove the plants every watering day they needed to be lined with plastic. A very easy fix.
The final thing I added was furniture protectors on the bottom corners to protect the wall!
