In order to obtain a modern-looking interior, we often rely on things like the wall gardens, the decorative accents and the colors used. But if you want a simple way of bringing greenery into your home, one that’s both functional and decorative, you should consider using interesting DIY projects and creating your own wall garden. These wonderful creations can be used as wall decorations in all sorts of ways.

For example, you can turn a metal watering can into a beautiful wall decoration with a simple, geometric design. You’ll need a tin can, some paint, a drill, wood screws, a tape measure, a pencil and a ruler. The idea is to measure the space between the two sides of the planter and then mark the center in with a pencil. X marks the mark. Make sure it’s big enough so you can put the planter in it. {found on designsponge}.
