Bathroom Project, I had originally planned to make this pot hanger, but overflowing in ferns. Well the ferns mentioned they wanted to live on the mantle, and then I thought a pot might be too big hanging in the corner anyway. I needed something lighter... literally and figuratively.....air plants! So Pinterest & I brainstormed (see this post) and the embroidery hoops really spoke to my heart. I tried my idea out, and it worked - so here it is for you. It's nothing crazy, but it felt good. This is a very easy & satisfying project, perfect to get your crafty feet wet. Gather this crap:
- 3 wood embroidery hoops - very cheap, I used 10" hoops.
- Paint & Paint brush (while you're buying paint, grab a few extra colors. They're cheap & really handy)
- Hot Glue & Glue Gun
- Reindeer Moss - I got mine at the store, but later found a better deal here on Amazon.
- Air Plants! I got mine from this Etsy Seller. They came fast!
First up, start painting. Pretty simple. I did mine all white, but I think I might make another one where each hoop is a different color.
Let's add moss already!
Back to the moss! Choose which area of your sphere will be the bottom, and start laying the moss in. A dab of hot glue, and a gentle puff of moss, voila. You're so good at this.
DON'T glue the air plants in. I mean, I guess you could, but why? Just let them rest on the moss, and intertwine with your new sphere/orb/cage thingy. Also, if they are loose, it will make soaking them a million times easier.
