diy – vine wall

Amazing, right? My friend Gabi, of Pick Tulip, did a styled wedding shoot a few weeks ago that included a “living” wall and I just knew I needed to recreate one for Ivy’s nook. The best part is that these are wild vines that you can forage and tape to the wall in a short ten minutes. The hardest part of this diy was securing my Grandmother’s mirror– my Husband thinks I’m crazy for picking up a drill, not for taping plants to the wall… ha!

Supplies needed:
Foliage of your choice, “alive” or silk. It’s up to you! This will last a few weeks, and it’s so easy we wouldn’t mind just hanging new vine when it starts to whither. Or, you can just buy silk plants of your liking.
White floral tape, or clear if your walls aren’t white.
Shears.

Steps:
Cut vines to length needed.
Apply a few pieces of tape to plant and wall.
Repeat until space is filled.

Crazy easy! So easy that I even feel a little silly typing it out since it’s so self-explanatory :)
PS, I have to apologize for my absence around here. Blogging is a creative outlet for me, not a job, and I don’t want to ever feel pressure to post (unless it’s contracted, of course!), or guilt from lack of posting. This space has given me and my family opportunities that we are so grateful for, and I promise to start updating regularly. I have felt just a bit uninspired as of late, not after this DIY though… I can feel the creative juicing flowing ;) xo
