Just a quick feel good blog post from the homestead.
|Starting The Project. Cardboard inside|
|Packing the Dirt|
One project I have been obsessed with for awhile is like a living piece of artwork. I have seen a lot of pins about succulent collections that are made inside frames and hung on the wall. I have been wanting to make one of these for a very long time. Well I finally did it!
Everything I made this living artwork with was recycled except for the new piece of wire that I used to help hold the dirt down. I decided that for my first attempt I wouldn't make anything too big. (I have seen them huge like this one I found two days ago at a co op)
|Something to inspire to. Large Succulent Art on the wall at a Co Op|
|Starting to put cuttings in.|
I think this is a great way to get some green in your house without spending a ton of money. There are many other tutorials out there that are much more in depth than mine but I wanted to share with you how easy this was to make. I think this would be great project to do with a friend. You could each bring cuttings from your succulents and do a trade. Hopefully everything will root okay and in a few weeks when I am back I can show you how the finish product looks on the wall.
Okay well that is all for now. Just wanted to share my latest recycled project!
