Framed Houseplants

Change up your indoor décor and show off your favorite houseplants with a simple change. 

Snake plants have long been a favorite indoor plant.  Their simple beauty endures less-than-ideal growing conditions and the neglect from busy owners. 

Liven up this modest plant with a bit of lumber, stain or paint, and a few nails.  Create a frame to mount on a wall or set on a table.  Use 1 x 4’s to make the outer frame large enough to accommodate the plant.  Create a shelf to fit inside the frame. Cut a hole in the middle of the shelf large enough to support the pot and hold the plant in place.  Insert and secure the shelf about 4 inches above the lower edge.  Stain or paint and securely mount.

Set the plant in place and consider using a self-watering pot to reduce maintenance and water spilling on furniture and the floor below.

A bit more information: Lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana) is another great candidate for your plant frame.  The braided and trellised plants are especially dramatic, providing added interest to your framed living artwork.
