Indestructible Plants

by kate on September 4, 2012

I’m not much of a green thumb, in fact I’ve been known to struggle with even the most low maintenance of plants (quick tip: despite what their nickname suggests, “air plants” do in fact need to be watered regularly). I will not be deterred by my previous mistakes however; I’m determined to bring greenery into my home in some form or fashion. I discovered a few nifty alternatives to actual plants, and I love that these objects not only provide a bit of delightful trompe l’oeil trickery, but they are also handmade, artisanal pieces that I can enjoy forever.

Whether they are made of paper, clay, or fabric, a small collection of “fauxliage” would be perfect for an interior with less than optimum gardening conditions, but they would also look wonderful in a home brimming with greenery. Not only have I found the solution to my gardening dilemma, but my quest for the perfect hostess gift can end as well. Hooray for indestructible plants!
