I saw this idea at a local flea market a few weeks ago and was tempted to buy a couple, until I realized I could make them myself. I already had the faux ferns ~ all I needed was the peat pots.
I smudged some dark wax on the peat pots to make them appear older. Then I filled each pot with a chunk of oasis and topped it with moss from the yard. Lastly, I arranged a few fronds of each kind of fern in the pots and ended up with a lovely collection of potted ferns.
I originally made them to sell, but after arranging this table vignette,
I have fallen in love with them and
want to keep them. Isn't that the way it always is?
Rust and green just seem to go together. I found this little tray at Hobby Lobby and added a few touches of green paint and then a layer of dark wax and now it looks old too.
