After looking around for realistic looking plants to put around my deck, patio and pool, I almost gave up. Finished faux plants are so expensive. Especially ones in ceramic containers.
Then I thought, why not make a bunch of plants myself. For a huge fraction of the cost, I made my own. About 50 plants to be exact.
Several small ones in votive sized containers, medium bucket sized containers and in huge pots I had around the house.
First visit was to the dollar tree. I found gorgeous spider plant bush stems and fern ones for a $1 a stem/bush. In addition to the cute black and hold rimmed votives, the metal containers, the stones, moss and I used my plastic bags the supplies came in.
Each bag of stones and moss goes a long way. I used 2 bags of moss, 2 1/2 bags of stones and 1/2 a bag of tiny stones for 8 plants. ( 4 small and 4 medium ).
