How to make an artificial plant wall or panel
Remove the backing board and glass from the box frame and set aside. Place the empty frame face down on your work surface.
Fit a length of chicken wire along the inside of the frame and carefully cut it down to size with wire cutters. Use an upholstery stapler to secure it to the frame, and then replace the frame’s backing board (you won’t need the glass).
Cut down the succulent and foliage stems. Turn the frame over with right side up, and using a hot glue gun, stick the heads to the backing board through the chicken wire.
Completely fill the frame, and then leave to dry before hanging up.
