DIY: Hanging Fern Wall

Hello friends! I hope that whether you are getting back into the swing of school or simply trying to say goodbye to summer, that the transition has been smooth for you. If the transition hasn't been so easy for you, I have good news, FALL IS ONLY 18 DAYS AWAY!!! 

If you know me, you know that I LOVE fall. I can't quite claim that it is my favorite season because I just love so much about all four of them- but, something about fall just makes my heart happy. Blankets and fires and football and yes, pumpkin spice lattes are all around the corner people!

Now back to reality. Today's DIY is brought to you by a recent Bride of mine. She contacted me before the wedding needing a blank wall to be spruced up for the Reception. She sent me some inspiration and asked if I could help her out! 

Below is the result: a fun and easy-to-make hanging fern wall


Here's all that you need:

Fine but strong cord (I used hemp cord from Hemptique.)

Assorted greens ( I used a combination of greens I foraged in my neighborhood, and feather leaf from HEB. ) 

A handful of tacks

A flatiron

To put it together, simply cut a strand of hempmcord to your desirable length. I used a straightener to iron out all off the kinks so that it would hang naturally. Add an assortment of greens equidistant from each other, alternating types of greenery. Tack the ends to a wall, and you're done!

Try this out if you have a blank wall you don't know how to fill, or make one for a fun backdrop for a special event or gathering! If you make one, snap a pic and send it to me- I would love to see it!

Have a great week!!
