Succulent Plant Display Shelf

Do you love the succulent trend as much as I do? My husband calls me the crazy plant lady.  I adore green growing things, but succulents are extra fun!   With so many plants around, I have a hard time finding places to put them sometimes.  So why not make a cute display shelf for the small ones?!  Walnut Hollow has an amazing assortment of shelves! I choose to use the Display Shelf for this project.  This Succulent Plant Display shelf was super easy to customize and with the Walnut Hollow Mini Alphabet HotStamp set I could put my favorite plant related quote on the shelf without worrying about my horrible handwriting!

Step one:

Decide on the quote you want to put on your shelf.  My Shelf says “Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.”  Set aside the hot stamp letters for your quote.  Attach the first letter of your quote to your Creative Versa-Tool and turn it on to heat up.

Step two: 

Press the letter straight down into the wood and lift back off again.

Step three:

Turn off your Creative Versa-Tool and use needle nose pliers to gently unscrew the hot stamp letter from the tool.  Be sure to put the hot letter in a heat-safe location to cool!  Using the pliers, attach the next letter and turn your Creative Versa-Tool back on.  Stamp each letter in your quote.

Step four: 

Add any fun embellishments you want to the shelf using your wood burner, or paint.   I used my wood burner and the mini flow point tip to doodle some creeping vines on the remaining blank space once my quote was stamped.

Step five:

Paint the back panel of your Display Shelf any color to match your decor. That pop of color on the back of the shelf really makes the plants stand out!

Step six:

Hang your shelf in a nice sunny spot using your favorite hanging hardware or sit it on a table or desk near a bright window.

Display your Cute little Succulents

The shelf stands by itself or hangs easily.  I hung mine on the wall using removable adhesive strips.  Put your cute little succulent plants on the shelf to display them!

After studying Culinary Arts in Portland Oregon, Kelli went back home to the sunny South West where she decided she wanted to do different kinds of Art. This busy mom of three spends all of her available free time creating in her Craft Shack “she shed” where she can be found burning wood, repurposing old stuff, crafting, and painting just about anything she can get her hands on.
