DIY Planter Wall

You guys! This project might top off my list of my favorite projects of all time. Every time I’ve walked into my living room this week, I’m honestly so excited. A wall covered in the cutest little plants – what could be better? My goodness! My grandma even stopped over and loved it – she called me the next day and told me to make sure I took pictures of it to share on my website because it was so precious. Ha! Well here you go, Grams!

I’m slowly getting my living room put together and this wall is definitely making the space right now. If I had unlimited funds I’d probably just turn my living room into a greenhouse with a big cozy couch and some cushions thrown in between all of the plants. For now, incorporating plants in sweet ways like this will have to do! What you need:
Plant clips
-Terracotta pots
-Tape measure
Drywall anchors
How to make it:
-Measure out and mark where you want your planters to hang. Make sure they are all level before drilling holes.
-If the marks don’t line up with a stud, follow instructions to put anchors in place.
-Screw plant clips in place.
-Slide the terracotta pots into place. The lip of my terrcotta pots were a bit small for the clips so I just squeezed the clips down a bit and they worked just fine!
-Add plants.
-Be instantly 100 times happier!

    These look awesome! I love the idea of “floating” wall decorations, although I’ve mostly only seen floating shells until I saw this! So cute and unique.

    looks beautiful. but what happens when you water the plants? are you not worried about water dripping to the floor?ReplyCancel

      I have the holes at the bottom covered over and the plants are set inside the terracotta pot in their plastic pots. I’m just careful not to overwater doing it this way.ReplyCancel

    So pretty! I’m wondering if you could share (if you remember) how far apart you hung them – both horizontally and vertically? I Kind of love the way you did it 😬ReplyCancel

      Thank you! The marks I made for the screws were 13″ apart horizontally and 8″ apart vertically.ReplyCancel
