Air plants or Tillandsias keep growing in popularity. And i am not surprised.
Air plants are so stylish and very easy to take care of. They don’t need any soil, just provide them with air and a good occasional misting and weekly water baths.
Because of the no soil, air plants are easy to display almost anywhere!
Here are ten easy air plant display ideas and quick DIY’s.

Get Beach-y with your air plants.
We are lucky to live near the beach, so i had a few nice shells laying around. They make great, elegant looking holders for air plants. If you have a sea urchin shell, you can turn it up side down, and have a hanging jellyfish!
Black wire to display air plants
Air plants look lovely stuck in this black wire decorative Monstera leaf.
Let’s go up and hang your air plants! Like here displayed in diamond shaped Himmeli wire ornaments. I had to bend the metal slightly because of how my ornaments were designed, they needed a bit more space to insert the air plants. These geometric holders are made especially to display air plants, so it is much easier to put them in.
Air plants don’t need a lot to shine. A small table center piece is made by grouping air plants in a wicker basket. Quick and simple!
Displaying air plants in small figural ceramic planters are a match made in heaven.
Hint: I pick these planters up whenever i come across them on my treasure hunts for my vintage shop. So check the shop if i have any available!
I always have my favorite vintage cup out on a kitchen shelf. Add a few air plants and it looks even better!

DIY Air Plant Brooch.
Start by gently wrapping the wire around the base of your air plant. You can hide it by wrapping it not on the outer side, but go up just above the lowest leafs. Slide it down, so you don’t see the wire anymore. Twist the wire once or twice in the back to secure.
Next, insert the wire through the holes in the pin back. Twist, bend and flatten out the wire on the pin back.
Wear with pride, but don’t forget to remove your air plant at the end of your day. A dark corner coat rack is not the ideal place for an air plant to thrive.
Make your own air plant terrarium.
Use a clear bowl and some small stones to create a gorgeous open living place for your air plant. A vintage miniature deer adds a touch of whimsy.
Fancy an air plant soda maybe?
Air plants are bubbling out of these small glass soda bottles. Just pop them on top for instant impact!
Make a rustic DIY air plant hanger.
Add an element of nature by hanging an air plant from a stick. Get a short clean stick, some wire, and a screw in hook. You can also choose to glue your plant onto the stick, but i prefer to keep my plants removable.
Wrap the wire carefully around the base of your air plant. Make sure there is enough length of wire left to wrap the other end around the stick a couple of times. Position the air plant how you like it to hang. Screw in the hook on top of the stick. Done! Ready to hang!
And that’s it. Ten easy ways to display your air plants beautifully around your home.
