Hanging Succelent Wall Art

Liven up your walls with something that has vibrant colors, unique textures, and grows over time. Create your own vertical succulent garden - Living Art - as a lovely focal point for your home.

Assembling your own vertical garden only requires a few basic construction and gardening skills. There are countless options for wood and dimensions. It all depends on what is available and/or your personal taste.

Materials Needed

Planter Box:

 *In this example, we used scrap ¾-inch thick pieces of cedar for the planter box, and ¾-inch thick reclaimed barnwood for the picture frame. We recommend using ¾-inch to reduce the weight of the piece.

• ¾-inch thick piece of wood or ¾-inch thick plywood for the back of the planter box (The length and width determines the size of your garden box.)
• ¾-inch thick wood cut to correct lengths for the sides of of the box. (We used rough cedar ripped to ¾-inch by 3 inches)
