I have this thing about forks, and apparently so does someone else. Most people complain that their teaspoons go missing. Not in our house. Nope, it’s always those darn forks. I’m convinced they put on these little forky sneakers and run off to that mysterious sock kitchen island 😉 Which means I have a whole bunch of mismatched forks locked away in a cupboard, pining for their long lost buddies. Time to do something about it. And no I’m not letting them go. I plan to tie them down for good and turn them into air planters for our Tillandsia Usneoides (aka Spanish Moss).

How to Turn Mismatched Forks Into Air Planters

Grab those sad little mismatched forks and a few pieces of scrap pallet wood. Just make sure that the pallets are safe to use with plants. It’s best to only use those marked with HT (heat-treated) for all DIY projects.

Place the fork onto the wood and eyeball where it needs to be cut. Sand away any rough spots.

Seal the wood with a few coats of polyurethane if they’re going outside to protect the wood from rotting. Our mismatched fork air planters are hanging inside for now, but I’ve been known to change my mind often 😉 So better safe than sorry.

Place the fork onto the piece of wood and use a toothpick or something with a sharp point to mark where to drill some holes.

I love the way they turned out. They make such a cute statement on our gallery wall in the kitchen. And they’re light enough to stick on using double-sided tape.

A Little Bit About Tillandsia Usneoides

Tillandsia Usneoides (Spanish Moss) is part of the pineapple family, and it loves indirect, bright light. In its natural habitat, you’ll find Spanish Moss draped over branches in warm, humid areas and it gets all its nutrients from the air. If you plan to grow them indoors, make sure to place it near a window. Just check that the air planters are not exposed to direct sunlight in summer. Give them a light mist of water on a daily basis and spoil them every now and again by mixing up a batch compost tea and spraying that on instead. I love how easy most Tillandsia’s are to grow.

If you like the idea or repurposing some forks to make an air planter, don’t forget to pin it for later.
