Cut three 7¼ x 7¼ squares with a miter saw.
Sand the edges of your square plaques with 150 grit sandpaper.
Paint a base coat on the plaques with FolkArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint in Teal.
Allow the paint to dry before moving to the next step.
Cut out three sections of the curtain a little larger than the plaques.
Trace one of the squares onto the back of the fabric and then cut it out.
Brush Mod Podge onto the back side of the fabric squares, and then add them to the wooden plaques.
Press and smooth out the fabric until the entire piece is smooth.
Allow it to dry.
Place the floor flange in the centers of each plaque. Make the screw holes with the pencil and then pre-drill a ⅛-in. hole where marked.
Screw in the flanges.
Twist on the elbows.
Follow each of these steps to create more plaques.
Use the sawtooth hangers to hang these pipe succulent planters to the wall.
