Instead, use them to create a one-of-a-kind living wall in your home. This reclaimed wood wall planter is an inventive way to display your favorite succulents or air plants—and it's super easy with a minimal supply list. All you need is moss to create a natural pot and twine to fasten the greenery to your cutting board. Build multiple to create an entire wall perfect for a sunroom, or make just one and hang it by your front door to welcome guests. Related: How to Make a Hanging Orchid Planter What You'll Need Equipment / Tools 1 Drill or screwdriver 1 Scissors Materials 1 D-ring hanger 1 Wood cutting board 1 Screws 1 Spray bottle 1 Mountable plant, such as a fern or orchid 1 Sphagnum moss 1 Clear fishing line Instructions Install Screws Screw a D-ring hanger to the back of a cutting board. Remove your plant from its pot and lay it on the front side of the cutting board. Drill four screws into the board, about 2 inches from each side of the plant's roots, leaving about ½-inch of each screw exposed above the board. Add Sphagnum Moss Cover the plant's roots with damp sphagnum moss (mist it with a spray bottle if needed), leaving the tops of the screws visible. You should have enough moss to cover the plant's roots and extend to the screws. The layer of moss shouldn't be thin—you want the roots to be totally covered. Secure with Fishing Line Tie clear fishing line to one screw. While holding the moss in place with one hand, wrap the fishing line over the moss and around a screw on the opposite side. Wrap the fishing line around the screw several times before crossing over the moss again to the opposite side. Continue this process, crisscrossing the fishing line several times over the moss until the plant is secured. Wrap the fishing line around the last screw at least 10 times before knotting and cutting the line. Cover the screws and any visible fishing line by tucking in more moss. To maintain your living gallery wall, mist the moss a few times a week using a spray bottle filled with water.
