Faux Succulent Vertical Hanging Wall Garden

7 Materials
Create succulents out of felt and pinecones to create this Faux Succulent Vertical Hanging Wall Garden
To prepare your pinecones line a baking sheet with some aluminum foil and put the pinecones in at 250 degrees for about an hour. This dries the pinecones out which made them open up, and it would kill anything that happened to be living inside the pinecone that I wouldn’t want in my faux garden.
Cut off the bottom of the pinecone to turn upside down and use for the faux succulent.
Paint the pinecones using a variety of shades of green.
For the felt succulents pick a leaf shape, these are the three I used. Cut small, medium, and large leaves in the shape that you choose.

Layer the leaves and attach them together using hot glue to create your felt succulents.
Pick a pretty frame for your garden. Remove the backing and glass if there is any.
Use a staple gun to attach chicken wire to the back of the frame.
Plant your pinecone and felt succulents. Attach the pinecones using wire and hot glue to attach the felt succulents.
Admire your Faux Succulent Vertical Hanging Wall Garden!
