Hello and happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend. I had a wonderful week spending time with family and friends. I will share the events of my week in a later post.
Today I have a quick and easy idea for a Palm Tree. Read on....
Do you remember my Fab Foyer makeover? I really loved how it turned out but, I thought the area between the staircase and the door was missing something. I wanted to add some height and drama to the space, so I decided a Palm Tree would do the trick. But that was before I found out how much one cost. I wasn't about to pay $100 plus for an artificial tree, so here's what I did......
I purchased 3 Tiki Torches ($1.99 each) and 2 Sago Palm bushes ($7.99 each) and made my own tree.
First, I removed the wicks from the torches and inserted the stems of the Sago Palm bushes; where the wicks used to be.
Next, I filled the pot with newspaper and shipping popcorn and added the torches one by one. I played around with the arrangement until I achieved the look I wanted. Lastly, I added some moss to hide the contents. (the mouth of the pot will determine how many torches you will need.)
So here it is, I LOVE IT!!!!!! What do you think? The cost for the Palm Tree about $25. ( the cost will be higher if you don't already have a pot.) Thanks for stopping by!
2 your home,
