My DIY moss ledge.

DIY moss ledge. You only have to buy two items for the ledge itself. Both from Walmart.

Use a razor knife to cut a perpendicular slit with the hook hole. From the top of the suction cup post to the bottom. Don't cut into the cup part.

Then insert your mesh into the slit and find where you want it to sit.

Once you decide where you want it cut a square out of the mesh with your razor knife.

Then break your plastic hook. You want the straight piece.

Line the square you cut into the mesh up with the hole that the hook was first sitting in.

Then you take the straight piece of the broken hook and push it through the bottom hole, through the square in the mesh and out through the top. And you're done!
