This Easter shadow box mobile is as easy as one-two-three-done. And that’s about how fast the idea came to me! When I passed the napkin rings in the Bullseye’s Playground, I braked. I asked myself how I could use them in the carrot Easter mobile I had in mind, and it was a no-brainer! I wanted to make/have carrot cylinders to hang air plants in and the napkin rings gave me the perfect opportunity to house air plants without having to make the fake carrots! The wooden napkin rings are very sturdy, so I decided I’d check Target’s greenery section for faux air plants and boom–there they were! It was meant to be.
I didn’t want to use real succulents because I didn’t plan on misting them in their hanging home nor did I plan on taking them down during the month of April leading up to Easter. (I have suspended hanging air plants and it’s really inconvenient to water them because I can’t soak them while they are suspended and spritzing them gets decor underneath wet, so I have to move the picture frame and book that are underneath them each time I go to water them.) So the choice was easy–faux air plants!
However, if you’d like living air plants, Target is carrying a brand called Live Trends and you can pick up their live air plants for $2.99 each in the seasonal section or online! #iheartairplants #gimmesucculents
