Need a small bit of greenery in an area that doesn't have a lot of space? No problem.
Have no fear about putting these ideas together in a flash, you can do this! No design experience, no glue gun, no foam needed nor green thumb... these are faux plants! These designs are very popular in a man's office, bathrooms and contemporary settings. All you need is the following items;
- Sand of course! Make sure it is sterilized because you don't want little creatures running around uninvited. Play around with different colors even layering it for a special look.
- Cool looking rocks or shells if you want a different texture at the top.
- A container of your choice, I chose the clear ones because they show off the color of the sand.
- A quality grade faux succulent plant should be used. Most of these are found in floral wholesale houses.
This design has a clear square container, black sand, 2 different plants & 1 special shinny shell!
This is a taller container, white sand, 3 different plants and small green beaded balls pushed in the center. Close up view below.
This container was recycled from a burned out candle, beige and rust layer sand, 2 different plants, black & rust colored rocks on the top.
Here is a design that is so simple, rust sand, multi color rocks and a plant stuck in the middle. How easy!
If you use high quality faux succulent plants these designs will look very real!
