TRELLIS WALL MATERIALS
• 1/2×11/2-inch pine
• 3/4×31/2-inch pine
• Miter saw
• White semigloss paint
• 6-foot level
• Wood screws
• Wood filler
• Putty knife
• Plant hangers
• Terrariums (hanging glass vessels, potting soil, charcoal, sand, and plants)
Step 1 Determine the size of your trellis wall (this will dictate the size of your squares and where you install the plate rail). Cut a square template to map out your design on the wall—ours is 22×22 inches.
Step 2 Cut, sand, prime, and paint your boards. Use your level vertically to mark spots across the wall for your 1×4 plate rail (ours is 5 feet above the baseboard) and then horizontally to connect the dots. Install your plate rail along the line.
Step 3 Mount boards at 45-degree angles from the baseboard, connecting the base and rail at intervals to match your template.
Step 4 Cut individual shorter pieces and install them at 90-degree angles to the longer boards to complete the squares.
Step 5 Fill screw holes with wood filler, let dry, sand, prime, and touch up with white semigloss paint.
Step 6 Install plant hangers on the intersections. Arrange and hang your terrariums.
