And by "faux," I mean artificial succulents, of course!
I have been drooling over some living succulent frames I saw on Pinterest. But, I don't feel like I have enough light in my living room to keep one alive. Hobby Lobby has some beautiful artificial succulents, but a worker told me they would never go on sale. So, I figured I'd just buy one with a coupon every time I was nearby until I had enough. Then I went to Target and saw this artificial succulent wreath. Someone had ripped one off, so it was 70% off. I grabbed it and decided to just use the remaining succulents from this wreath!
I had this old frame I got at a thrift store, that I've been waiting to use on just the perfect project.
I sanded it a little and painted it with some coral spray paint. I cut out a piece of cardboard to fit snuggly in the opening.
As I started to lay out my design, it became obvious that I'd need some sort of background, so you wouldn't just see cardboard in between the gaps.
I already had this beautiful sheet of moss still in the package, but even just using moss from the Dollar Tree would work since most of it will be covered.
I cut and hot glued it in place.
I propped it up on a container so I could cut holes through the moss and cardboard.
I used a steak knife to cut an opening for the stems and then put hot glue on them to hold them in place.
I kept the stems short, so the frame would still be able to rest flat on the wall. (Back view).
I love the end product!
