#malfattixzartiques vintage jungalow workshop

When we first met Megan Malfatti of Malfatti Interiors we knew instantly our styles were similar, and we shared a love for vintage furniture and decor. In no time, we decided that a creative collaboration was a must - and from there the ideas came out faster than we could get them jotted down. We had the idea for a staghorn fern mount diy workshop, but we wanted the event to be a more complete experience - a chance for us to show how our vintage pieces and Megan's professional styling experience could be combined to create our very own vintage jungalow, that with our help YOU could re create in your own home.

a cozy little setup greeted guests when they walked in - we used our vintage persian rugs not only on the floor - but also draped over a little settee. One of our indigo mudcloths made a great cushion cover in that vintage wicker "throne like" chair

a wide shot of the jungalow itself! Don't you love all the layered rugs? They made the space feel so cozy! Even if you just have ONE of the gorgeous Persians but you want a layered look - you can always put a larger jute, or other neutral rug underneath!

staghorn fern mount diy! We thought hanging the plants up above the workstations added a little interest! Below an old wooden farm feeder holds nails, moss, and twine - all needed for our project!

class has begun! Step one: trace circle on your board - this is where your plant will mount. Also, go ahead and make your "hanger" on the back of the board - we used two nails and a short piece of twine.

four: use the spray bottle to soak your moss - this is what will help it attach to the soil. Once it's soaked mold it on top of the soil - and spray again if needed

five: twine time! tie one end of your twine to one of the nails then go across the base of the plant to an opposite nail and continue this zig zag pattern until your plant is secured.
