DIY Succulent Planter Gallery Wall for $50

DIY Succulent Planter Gallery Wall for $50

With summer just around the corner, it’s a great time to get outside for some exterior-focused projects. In today’s simple DIY tutorial, I am sharing how I added some major curb appeal to the exterior of my modern farmhouse for only $50 with this planter gallery wall…

With spring in full bloom, I have been working on budget-friendly ways of adding charm to the exterior of our new home.

Super excited to finally have a proper front porch, I knew I wanted to add a seating area against this long, blank canvas of a wall …

Not only did I want to provide a charming area to sit and relax while I am waiting for my boys to get off of the school bus, I was hoping to add some texture and interest to the large white wall (Shoji White by Sherwin Williams to be exact).

While I had considered using the same faux greenery tiles I had used at my previous home (you can see my DIY Faux hedge wall tutorial here), when I came across a porch reveal from the fabulous Jenny Komenda of Juniper Print Shop, I was super inspired by a terracotta planter gallery wall included in her design.

So being the super creative and original blogger that I am, I totally ripped off her idea for my own use. Thank you for the inspiration, Jenny (you can see her original design here)!

And while I feel like a bit of a loser for not coming up with this idea first, I seriously couldn’t be happier with how this beginner-friendly project turned out.

So let me show you how I replicated this look (and tried to put my own spin on it).

How To Mount a Terracotta Pot Gallery Wall to Your Home’s Exterior:

(Materials Needed):

(Step 1). Decide on the composition of your planter wall. I decided to use six terracotta planters, and I thought they looked best spaced 18.5 inches from each other.

(Step 2). Once you have determined the spacing, using your drill bit, pre-drill your spax screws into the wall for each pot holder. While the pot holders did come with screws, our board and batten was causing the provided screws to break, so we had to use the spax screws.

(Step 3). Fill your 6 inch terra cotta plants with some greenery. So this is where I put my own lazy girl spin on it…..Taking the easy way out, I decided to use six faux succulents from Hobby Lobby. If you can be patient, I would recommend waiting to buy them when they are 50 percent off.

Voila! That is all you have to freakin’ do! See how incredibly simple that was?

Tip: I decided to buy 2 of each varieties of the deceptive faux succulents, and I alternated them in the pots on each row.

For about $50 and less than an hour of our time, this planter wall infused some major charm to our exterior.
