  1. Remove the backing of the wooden frame.
  2. Lay the wire mesh across the back of the frame. Cut to the size of the frame.
  3. Using the 1”x1” wood strips; mount the wire mesh onto the frame. Secure with nails.
  4. Once the frame is secure, create a bed of moss over the mesh wire. Make sure all the space is filled to avoid the soil from spilling out. Once all the space is filled, lay down the soil until the rim of the wood strips.
  5. Cover with the plywood and secure with nails. Flip over the frame to reveal the front side.
  6. Remove all succulents from their pots. Using the pruning shears, strip off their roots and extra leaves so you’re left with a little stem at the end for easy mounting.
  7. Plant your succulents into the moss; using the wire mesh to secure them. Cut strips of wire and bend into a U shape to use as fasteners.
  8. Fill the entire frame with your succulents.
  9. Make sure your succulents are securely fastened before hanging.
