This hanging plant will go great in any space you might need to add a little green – whether it be your home of office, real or faux plant.. take your pick and follow the steps below!
Does anyone else feel like it’s spring already with this gorgeous weather we’ve been having?! It was almost 80 degrees this past weekend here in Charlotte! This weather has me on a spring decor kick and in my opinion there’s no better way to say spring than adding a little greenery to your home! This DIY is one of my favorites to date and I promise it won’t scare you away.
What You’ll Need:
- Round wooden plaque – I knew about what size I needed and got 2 sizes just to be safe.
- Rope – Thick enough to hold the plant you have
- Screw Hooks
- Stain of your choice – I grabbed a small sample stain from my local hardware stores.
- Brushes for staining
- Old rag or cloth for staining
- Faux or Real plant
Step 1: Take some time staining the wood plaque with the stain you chose. I used Jacobean by Minwax. I love the dark chocolate look of this stain color… it’s my go-to!
Step 2: Once your stained wood plaque has had enough time to dry, mark your 3 points and screw in the screw hooks onto the face of the plaque. (Note: I used the backside of the plaque as the ‘top’ because the plaque I chose had an edge detail on the front which I wanted to use as the bottom so it’s seen when hanging.)
Step 3: Mock up your rope around the 3 hooks to measure out how much you’ll need. Create a knot or wrap the end around the top to create a hook space in the top of the rope.
Step 4: Place your plant in the center of your plaque and get ready to hang it. TIP: Don’t forget to place a screw hook in your ceiling where you are going to hang your new plant.
Step 5: Hook up your hanging plant and you’re good to go! What do you think? Would you try this DIY out?
