A DIY driftwood air plant holder is a creative way to use driftwood from the beach and display air plants in your home!
On a sunset walk during our beach trip last summer, I found several nice pieces of driftwood. I had no idea what I’d do with them, but I brought them home with us. The pieces sat in our garage for months before an idea struck. I got a few air plants with the shipment of succulents I received for my succulent wall planter and needed a way to display them. Using only one tool, I made a DIY driftwood air plant holder that allowed me to beautifully display my new air plants!
DIY Driftwood Air Plant Holder
This is a really simple project! All you need is a piece of driftwood, a drill, and a spade bit. Figure out how many openings you’d like in your air plant holder and mark them on your wood. Then carefully make a hole on each of the marked positions using a power drill with a spade bit. Go slowly when you are drilling, because the wood can be a bit fragile. I didn’t want it to split, so I took my time when I was drilling. If you’d like to plant succulents or any plant that needs soil, you’ll need larger holes but 1 inch holes worked perfectly for my air plants!
I love to decorate with plants in my home and this is a unique way to display them. I also really like that this is a way to bring natural elements into our home. I placed this driftwood air plant holder on our bright white DIY entertainment center and it looked stunning!
If the thought of using a drill makes you second guess this project, then you may be more interested in these air plant holders you can purchase from Amazon!
