If unintentional plant-slaughter was a crime, I'd be locked away for a long time. I've tried over the years to master houseplants, herbs, flowers -- you name it. But all have died a swift death at my hands.
Consequently, I have a collection of old planters and flowerpots that I avoid looking at in the garage lest I feel a pang of guilt. I decided to repurpose them with fake plants. Yes, fake plants have come a long way, and these that I bought at Joanne's look very lifelike. Guilt gone, more room in the garage.
How I Slogged Through It:
This was really simple. I painted the outside of the pot and let dry. I put floral foam in the bottom, plugged in the fake plants, and covered the foam with fake moss.
