Faux yo house!

It all began with this excellent plant my sister Cynthia made for my house. Which in the summer I put outside. And all is well when it is outside in good weather.

  2. I like to cut oasis with a serrated knife and cover it with Glad Press & Seal it keeps the oasis dust contained
  3. Take apart a few faux plants to have a variety for each container
  4. Place oasis, rocks or faux miss rocks in each container
  5. Poke holes in oasis and faux moss rocks
  6. Then place plants in holes and or glue them

I made a monogram faux succulent topiary, I bought a broken G at Michael’s for $8 and hot glued everything into it. So much fun I can’t believe it is over. You can see any of the products that I used if you click the colored links. It will take you to Amazon.com to that product. You don’t have to get the products there to have success but I would appreciate if you did. Thank you so much for reading my blogs. I have so much fun with this.

So many Fakes out there so little time!!!

Please remember to share early and often!
