I love lavender. I’ve been wanting a plant for use in various vignette’s inside my home. As I am a notorious plant killer I started looked for a faux lavender plant and discovered that the size and type I wanted was around the $20-25 range.
Not wanting to pay that much I kept my eyes open and finally found an entire row of this somewhat unappealing specimen at the store At Home. They were marked down to $4.00.
Parts of the rim were cracked and I really didn’t care for the gravel top but I thought there was potential.
Digging through my stash I found a bit of twine and had both sheet moss and Spanish moss on hand. I selected the later as the green matched the lavender leaves better.
I simply just hot glued the twine to the top of the pot to hide the cracks. Then I hot glued the Spanish moss right over the gravel. After the first application of moss I took the pot outside and shook out the loose bits and then added a second application of moss to the areas that needed it.
So my ugly $4 plant has now been transformed into exactly the pretty bit of spring I was seeking.
I do love a fast fix!
