I kinda went crazy with the faux succulents. But they are such a sweet and cheerful looking plant, how can one resist?
I decided to make a quick floral arrangement for my kitchen and got everything I needed from the Dollar Tree. And the cost came to about $9 ;)
What you need for this project:
plastic garden pot
various faux succulents
decorative contact paper
decorative rocks (but I used some from my back garden)
The first thing I did was make a template for the triangle shapes on the pot. I drew it out using a ruler on watercolor paper.
Using the template, I drew and cut out eight triangles from the contact paper and attached them to the pot.
I then stuck the two pieces of foam together using toothpicks and placed them in the pot on top of a couple of Dollar Tree bags to add some height.
I then began to arrange the succulents around the foam.
I took another Dollar Tree plastic bag and tucked in between the foam and sides of pot for stability.
I took floral moss and rocks to fill in the bald spots.
