My love affair with plants continues, as does making fun little containers for them. Luckily, for my “not-so-green” thumb, today’s plant life is of the faux variety. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that if it’s in the house, it has to be fake. I just can’t keep it alive if it’s not a child or an animal.
What You’ll Need: Empty Gum Container, Gold Tape
After you remove the wrapping from the gum container, this is the kind that you get for your cup holder in the car, you are left with a smooth white surface. Great for decorating! Then snap off the lid and it’s ready to go.
Also, isn’t the gold tape fabulous! My friend bought it for a project we did together and she graciously let me use some more of it for today’s DIY. You can find it HERE
Begin by cutting a strip of tape and, going from inside the top to the bottom, lay it on the container. Continue doing that, crisscrossing the strips as you go, until you get the look you like.
For the little faux succulent, I placed a small bit of floral foam in the bottom to hold it and then placed little bits of moss under the plant to make it look like it’s been planted.
