12 small succulent plants - Home Depot
1 sheet (?) of white plastic lattice - Home Depot
1 package of heavy duty but bendable wire - Home Depot
1 bag of moisture control potting soil - Home Depot
1 package of wall screws with white anchors
12 pint mason jars - Publix
5 bags of river rocks - Dollar Tree
3 bags of moss - Dollar Tree
We started like this...
And while I filled the jars,
(Rocks on the bottom for drainage, a layer of moss, and then soil)
Hubbs pre-drilled several holes into the lattice, marked out where they would go into the wall, and put in the anchor screws.
(It's kind of hard to see, but the white dots are the anchors for the screws.)
We then measured out lengths of wire and attached it to the lattice by wrapping it around the back and leaving enough to wrap around the lip of the jars at least once.
(Ignore the feral onion.)
Then we hung the lattice and just wrapped the wire around the jars and ... BOOM! Instant LIVING living room art the kids can't touch! (or eat)
I think we will edge it in some kind of white trim to define it a bit more but it looks pretty good now...
Afterwards, I used the lids from the jars to make coasters for the super awesome cedar chest Hubbs refinished for a coffee table....
And then I just went batsh*t and the feral onion became part of a kitchen center piece, but we will see how long that lasts. It has started to give me the shark eye and I heard talk of rebellion from the potatoes in the drawer. You can't get anything past a potato... not with all those eyes....
