Crystals have become so trendy and for good reason! They help harness our energies and are all around a pleasant accessory in the home. If you have crystals lying around that you want to repurpose then this DIY if for you! Turning your crystal into a planter is easier than you might think!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Assorted large crystals
- Air plants
- Leather cord
- Floral adhesive (optional)
Step One: Attach your air plants to your crystals. You can use faux air plants or real ones, depending on where you plan on putting your crystal planter. However, air plants are almost impossible to kill so you should be safe regardless! To keep our crystals intact we found natural cutouts in our crystals to stick the air plants into. If you want something more secure you can use floral adhesive.
Step Two: Now you’re going to want to create your hanging apparatus. We did this by cutting two pieces of string. Make sure the pieces are the same size! Next, create a criss-cross of strings, place your crystals on top and then tie a knot at the top so that the loops are even and your crystal will be stable.
Step Three: Now you just need to hang your crystal! We’re showing it here hung on a curtain rod but you can also hang it outside. If you don’t want to hang your crystal planter you can always display it on a shelf!
These crystal planters are so easy to make and they create a practical use for your large crystals! They would also make a fabulous gift.
