Crafts, Fun & Easy DIY

Monogram Succulent

I’m a big BHG Fan. I am getting ready to paint my front door. I was looking at color ideas, and saw something like this on their site by a front door. I loved the idea. Now if your not familiar with my DIY creations…..I try to use what I have at home already. So you will never guess what I used to create the ‘K’…..paint sticks!succulent-monogram-crafts-flowers-gardening-3

For this project, you will need paint sticks (the longer ones, free at home improvement store), paint, succulents, and sphagnum moss, and wood glue, hot glue, saw, and stapler. I purchased the moss and succulents at the dollar store!
The tricky part is figuring out your monogram. I used wood glue to attach the three sticks for the first part of my ‘K’

I just played around with it for a while. I tried looking at it like a puzzle. When I figured it all out, I began making the miter cuts.

When I finished the monogram, I spray painted the inside a dark brown. (Just in case you could see through the sphagnum moss. When the inside was dry, I turned it over and sprayed it with Rustoleum Metallic Gold.

That’s it. I made a hanger on the back with thick wire, stapled it on. I am putting this next to my front door…..love these added DIY touches to my home.

  1. Those are artificial succulents? It can be done with real ones too. The growing medium can be held loosely with chicken wire, and the cuttings can just be plugged in. It takes a while for them to root, and they can not hang like that for very long, but they are easy though to restore by growing them flat for a while.
