Favorites Friday - Faux Tree Potting Hack

Here's my new favorite trick that I discovered just this week! It now seems so obvious that I wonder why I hadn't thought of it myself.

Over the past month I've been working on cozying up our home and recently purchased a couple of faux trees for some added greenery. 


The fiddle leaf fig above is from QVC (currently sold out). It was such a great price but it needed a pot and even in the chunky basket that I had purchased last year at Kirkland's it looked a little bare just plopped in there. While shopping at Nell Hills earlier this week I noticed that their designers had used wreaths around the tops of the pots on some of their potted plants. Since I had several wreaths that I wasn't using, I came home and tried it and loved the look.



Here's a faux fig tree that I potted in an olive bucket from Hobby Lobby with a slightly smaller 6" boxwood wreath at the top.


Both boxwood wreaths are from Purple Rose Home and I love how wispy they are - perfect for this look. You could also insert a few trailing picks into a regular wreath and achieve a similar look.

and the added tree.


I thought this was such a great idea that I just had to share it with you all.
