3 cute ways to display your airplants and succulents
As they don’t need soil, air plants are incredibly versatile plants that can be placed anywhere, including in sea urchin shells. Simply use a dollop of air plant glue to secure it, and tie a string or bendy wire around the shell. Alternatively, you can bend a wire around the base of the plant and string it through the shell. Hang your plants on a dowel or window blinds.
We also saw these adorable sea-themed air planters on Etsy, by handcrafter Cindy Searles.
Instead of the usual pots, form a vignette on your window ledge or sideboard with a collection of quirky alternatives, such as organic-shaped glass bowls (available from decor store Nid D’Oiseaux), seashells, or hollow cement blocks. For succulents, fill these containers with sand or earth.
A STRING BOARD
Create living wall art by placing all your air plants on a string board. All you need to do is nail the borders of a wooden plaque, and web the string in any way you want. Your plants will sit comfortably between the little niches you’ve created.
