Faux Succulents are my new favorite thing. I don’t have a green thumb so faux is my friend. I’m telling you guys up front it’s really a drastic overstatement to call this project a craft or diy. It is the easiest project EVER.
The project took a turn half way thru but I’ll get to that.
This fun makeover is for Thrift Store Décor Day. Be sure and visit the rest of the team after viewing my project. They appreciate you coming by.
I started out with the three glasses from my local thrift store. I went to the store with an idea for a project in my head and purposely selected these pieces.
See I had this bag of river stones at home from an earlier shopping trip and I needed to use them in something.
First thing I did was to remove all those sticky labels from the glasses with Goo Gone. I hate those labels.
My plan was to make candleholders out of the glasses using the river stones as filler.
I put the project together and immediately said “No”. The candles weren’t working for me.
Then I had an ah-ha moment. I remembered the package of faux succulents I picked up at a blog convention. They’ve been in my stash for over a year. Time to use them.
The project was as simple as placing the faux succulents into each container and filling the glasses up with the river stones.
I banged each glass on the table several times to pack the stones down.
The bag of stones were just the right size for the job. Don’t know what I would have done if I came up short. I didn’t think that far ahead.
When I got to the martini glass the succulents were a little tall so I pulled the tops out of the stems.
See how easy that was. This is thrifty décor at it’s best. The glasses as plant containers really make a statement. I’m glad I thought of those succulents.
The colors are so pretty. I especially love that pop of red.
I think the project cost was less than $5. Not bad.
And I don’t have to worry about watering. Win.
Pin it so you won’t forget it…..
