While I’m well aware that not everyone can get on board with the faux plant trend, I can’t help but appreciate the whole “zero maintenance” aspect of the idea. I tend to struggle with keeping live plants, well…alive…so you’ll find silk plants tucked all around our house.
It’s not just because I missed out on the green thumb gene that I’ve gone “faux” with greenery, though. Our pets can’t get enough of nibbling on live trailing leaves, and although I’ve triple checked that the rooted plants we do have are okay for their systems, I still don’t love the idea of them snacking on anything other than their vet-approved kibbles. So, it’s just another big reason for me to succumb to the draw of fake plants.
The good news is that today’s DIY craft doesn’t have to involve faux plants. Whether you choose live succulents or the silk IKEA option I suggest over on the full tutorial here, you can still get this look in 10 minutes or less. Hop over to Hunker for the shopping list and step-by-step instructions for hacking my favorite 3-piece basket set into wall-mounted succulent holders. Oh, and make sure you keep scrolling through the tutorial for an alternative use for the displaced basket tops, too!
