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)

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
