Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Unfinished Pine Shadow Box, Succulents, Paints, Glue Dots
Hello friends, I’m so glad you could stop by and check out my latest post from Darice. Today I’m sharing a Succulent Wall Art for the house. It’s a perfect DIY home decor project you can have done in no time!
I’m such a fan of succulents, I take any opportunity to use them in my decor. While browsing through Pottery Barn I found these pieces of Succulent Wall Art. They were beautiful but pretty pricey for my taste. So I started looking though my craft stash and found that I actually had everything to make them myself and for WAY cheaper. See there are positives to being a craft supply horder.
Darice had the exact frames that Pottery Barn did, they were even the same size! How lucky is that, right??!
SUCCULENT WALL ART
Step 1 – Paint Frame
Start off by painting the inside and outside of the frame an off white color. I used a chalk paint so I only needed to paint on one coat. Let dry 20 minutes.
Step 2 – Add Vintage Effect Paint
Next is the fun part, adding the Vintage Effect Paint. This paint really gives any piece a “whitewashed” look. I recently did some candle holders the same way.
I painted on the Vintage Effects Paint and then wiped it down with a paper towel.
Look how perfect that is!! Exactly the look I wanted to create!
Step 3 – Add Succulents
Are you ready to add some succulent!!! I know I am!
I decided to use some advanced strength glue glue dots I had for the step. If you don’t have this, then hot glue will work as well.
Add a couple Glue Dots to the back and you’re ready to place them on the backboard of the frame.
Those succulents aren’t going anywhere now!
Step 4 – Command Strip
With frames like this I always like to add some command strips to the back to easily place on the wall. I hate putting nail holes in my walls if I don’t have too.
Now that everything is done we can hang them up!! I feel these can go with any style, Coastal, Farmhouse, even Hygge.
So simple right, I am thrilled with how this turned out and that I already had all the supplies on hand!
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my new post.
