DIY Framed Hanging Succulent Garden

If you have some vintage picture frames and you want to reuse them then you can make a hanging succulent garden. Of course you can also use some other plants and even grow herbs in such hanging garden but succulents and cactuses looks so good and are so easy to keep them alive that they are the best choice for such project. If you want your succulent garden to pop out you can sand your frame and paint it in some bright color.

For the project you’ll need a large picture frame with an interior opening, a large piece of 1″ Chicken Wire, wood strips, a sheet of oak plywood, a bunch of nails, a can of varnish spray, cactus soil and a lot of small succulents. You also need wire cutters, work gloves and a hammer. Here are full instructions showing how this awesome hanging garden can be made.

    I love this! I have no green thumb, how do you keep the succulents alive in the frame once you have it hung?

  4. Mike Says:

    You only need to water it 2-4 times in a month so you can remove it from a wall to do that.
