DIY Gift For Dad: Wall Hanging Air Plants

This Father’s Day, ask dad to put down his power drill…so you can use it to make Wall Hanging Air Plants, of course! Low maintenance and simply gorgeous to hang around the home or use as a striking centerpiece, our DIY gift is a stunner, if we do say so ourselves.


What you’ll need:

  • a selection of air plants (or succulents if opting for the bonus option, see below)
  • one (1) piece of birchwood
  • power drill with hole saw attachments
  • fishing wire (or any type of thin wire)
  • picture frame hanging tools


Step 1: Drill holes into birchwood. Stick to around 2-3 holes.


Step 2: Pick which air plants you want to use and place in the drilled holes.

Step 3: Wrap wire around the air plants and secure on the back of the birchwood. Cut off any excess wire.

Step 4: Add in other air plants; some won’t require wiring.


Step 5: Secure smaller airplants with just wire (we were able to do this directly on the birchwood).

Step 6: Drill picture frame hooks to the back of the birchwood.


Step 7: Hang!


Bonus option: Swap out the air plants for succulents and moss; this option makes a stunning centerpiece for any tablescape—not to mention a great conversation starter for that time you made your dad’s gift with your very own hands, you crafty person, you.

Happy Father’s Day!
