I procured another airplant this weekend and since they haven't been very spectacular after a few months at my house, I decided that they needed a new place besides a sunny window sill. They are epiphytes so they should be out in the element. The only place where they get nice sunshine, a bit of wind but is still protected, is by our front door. I wanted something so that they can be brought inside if needed and displayed nicely.
I decided to make a hanging plaque.
Here's a quick How To:
Voila! That's it! Since each airplant sits differently, you will have to decided of they should be hung or cuddled. I didn't want to glue my plant directly to anything (you can if you use green glue), so I attached them with golden wire using the natural holes provided by the abalone shells.
To get the airplant, we went to Garden world.
It is a treat.
They have collectors corner filled with bromeliads, succulents, cacti, orchids, carnivorous plants and many more exotic plants.

And lastly, here's a sneak peek of what my Mum and I have been up to.
We're about to launch something very special...
