Happy Monday loves! I hope you all had a lovely Easter with family/friends. Trees are finally starting to bloom and I feel like Spring is here to stay 🙂 Remember when I said on this post that I would be sharing my project for the DIH Vertical Succulent Garden you could build at your local Home Depot? Well the day is here and it’s time to party…virtual style of course! I’m so happy to be sharing this with you all. This time of year, succulents can be seen in so many stores and in so many pretty pictures on Instagram. Have you seen them on my Instagram page? Well how would you like to build your very own vertical succulent garden? This was such an easy project to do and I did it on a Saturday morning and it only took a few hours, including going out to get my supplies.
Below is the inspiration picture from Home Depot
and below is my completed version
I LOVE how it looks above the fireplace!
Typically I LOVE to stain wood in a rustic walnut finish, but for some reason, I just really loved the look of the raw wood contrasting against the pretty green succulents.
Something else I did a little different than the Home Depot’s inspiration version, is that I used some green moss around the edges. I thought it added some texture very organically and it also helped to fill in any gaps not able to filled with succulents.
SUCCULENT TIP CARE: Don’t water them often. So many people kill them by doing so. Treat them like cactus, give them light and water only once a month. Your not a plant killer, you just didn’t know LOL
Loves you have to make this…it’s so easy and quick and super fun. Grab some girlfriends and head to your closest Home Depot.
I said it before and I’ll say it again, Home Depot never fails when it comes to inspiring us DIYers. They have workshops at all of their locations for you do-it-yourselfers, do-it-herself and eevne for kids. They are for anyone, really, for all ages and skill levels. Lean things from building home decor pieces, to home reparis and even how to operate tools (this can be really scary for us women sometimes). You can visit www.workshops.homedepot.com to learn more.
If you have taken a workshop at The Home Depot, I would LOVE if you took just a few minutes to fill this workshop feedback survey. It’s really gonna help the talented workshop team at The Home Depot, make sure they are delivering to you workshops you enjoy 🙂
You can attend your local Home Depot’s workshop and make your very own Vertical Succulent Hanging Garden after this virtual party. It’s a fun time to grab some girlfriends and make it a girls night out!
