Bring a little greenery into your shower with a DIY cedar-mounted staghorn fern.
Every space could use a little greenery, so turn your regular house plant into cheap wall decor with this mounted staghorn fern tutorial.
- cedar wood plank
- staghorn fern
- drill + drill bit
- 2" stainless steel screws (4)
- 15-lb nylon cord
- 2 rust-proof eyebolts
- rust-proof chain
Measure and Drill
Place the potted fern in the center of the wood plank, making sure that a sterile leaf is turned toward the top. Use a pencil to roughly mark four equal corners around the plant. Drill a hole in each of the marks, and then screw in stainless steel screws.
Add the Plants
Dip a handful of moss in warm water, and then arrange it on the plank in between the screws. Repeat until the space is covered. Pull the fern from the pot and remove any loose soil. Place it on the plank in the center of the moss.
Wrap the nylon cord around one of the screws and tie it off, then wrap it around the rest of the screws and over the plant to secure the fern. Add more moss to fill in space and cover the screws, wrapping with more nylon cord as you go to secure it. Cut any excess cord.
Screw the rust-proof eyebolts into the top of the plank, attach a rust-proof chain to each of the bolts, and hang!
