For those of us who don’t have a green thumb, succulents are just about the easiest plants to take care of. But for those who need it to be even easier, you can get the same beauty with a really good artificial succulent.
- artificial succulent stems
- floral green foam block
- small black rocks
- glue gun
- ceramic decorative container
- Cut green foam block as needed and fill ceramic container.
- Using a pencil or artificial succulent stems to poke desired holes into foam
- Keeping a few succulents in place, glue small black rocks to cover as much foam as possible. This will help give the potted plant a much more realistic look.
Great home decor all year round. We love that the succulents look real and plan to use this in our FrugElegance by Design home staging.
A small “frug-elegant” shopping tip: Keep an eye out on those clearance shelves in your local retail stores. Slightly damaged items can be a major treasure in disguise. We found our decorative ceramic container in our local Michael’s Store on clearance. It had a couple dings which was an easy fix using a black sharpie marker. Another good find, when shopping today, we came across a small ceramic cup. It’s probably meant to hold a toothbrush but with its small chip on the upper rim, it made its way to the clearance shelf. Original price was $12 marked down to $2. This will be perfect for creating another artificial succulent for our home decor. And the chip won’t be visible at all. We wouldn’t want any damage to show but some are so small and super easy to fix.
