The process starts by taking a large piece of brown kraft paper (you could use any type of paper or cardboard you like) and tracing your favorite frames and planters with a pen or marker. Cut each tracing out so they can be hung on the wall. These templates will help you visualize your gallery wall before you start hammering nails into the wall, and it gives you an opportunity to change things until you find the perfect style or placement that works for you. Next, using some painter’s tape, you simply attach your paper templates directly to the wall in your favorite design or arrangement so that you can see what everything will look like once it’s hung up.
After the templates are placed on the wall, you’ll need to hammer nails into the areas of the wall where you want to hang everything. The TikTok user also mentioned that you can use Command Strips if you want to, which should work just fine for most average-sized artwork and flat items like prints, etc. You’ll definitely need nails for pots, planters, and the heavier stuff.
All Kinds of Wall Gallery Ideas
Once the nails or strips are in place, you just remove the paper template and tape and start to hang your items up. The video also provided some ideas for where to obtain beautiful wall vases, planters, and artwork like flea markets and thrift stores. Once you’re happy with everything, you can fill the wall planters and other vessels with your favorite plants (real or fake).
Lots of TikTok users loved the video, with user Apotheozied saying, “that paper placement is so smart! the plant gallery wall is heckin cute too!”
User AvalonArtAlberta said:
“this looks so cool, but also, I can’t get over how you traced the frame in the middle of the paper. do it at the edge! two sides are already done!”
Even if you don’t have a green thumb, this awesome TikTok video definitely provides a ton of inspiration, so you can add beauty to any wall in your space. As for me, I’m totally ready to grab some paper, markers, and planters and get ready to start a beautiful plant gallery wall of my own.
