Hello and Happy Monday! I am so excited today to be partnering with the Home Depot to tell you all about the upcoming Vertical Succulent Garden Do-It-Herself Workshop on Thursday, April 20th 6:30pm-8pm at your local Home Depot. Ladies, this one is just for you (but you guys are welcomed too. 😉 So leave the kiddies at home! (Tell Mister that Timisha said so). And make it a girls night at The Home Depot.
Let’s help you get those creative juices flowing. Today, myself, and 9 other very talented bloggers are going to be showcasing some of the ways in which you can put your own creative personal touch on your Vertical Succulent Garden. Party over Here, Virtually!
Alright, grab your morning coffee, tea, water with lemon, bourbon (no judgment here 😏) and let’s get this party started!
I started my process off by taking a trip down to my local Home Depot. I love that whenever I am looking for something, there is always someone around that actually wants to help.
I stained my planter purple because it felt warm and spring like. It’s no secret, I love bright vibrant colors. I then assembled my planter per the instruction guidelines.
Building the planter was a very quick and easy process. Remember to wear gloves when handling the poultry wire, preferably ones that fit your hands. Hahaha. I couldn’t find my smaller gloves when I was rolling out the wire. Then as soon as I’d completed the process of stapling the wire to the planter, what do I see in the corner? Yep, my smaller gloves.
With a fully assembled planter, I was ready to get creative. I always had these visions of rock beds around a succulent garden. So I thought who says I can’t incorporate that into a vertical succulent garden. So bust out the trusty hot glue gun, picked up some rocks and start gluing. I secured the rocks with the hot glue and industrial strength super glue. The hot glue allowed the rocks to hold while the glue set.
Once I’d outlined my ‘rock river’I planted the succulents around the rocks.
And for the final touch, I needed a sign. Using my Cricut, I cut out a vinyl decal that I secured to a thin scrap craft board using super glue. I had to add glue because I knew I would be storing my planter outdoors.
I added two additional eye screws to the bottom of the planter to hang the sign. I repurposed the twist tie that came with the landscape fabric to secure the sign to the planter.
