Freebie Friday: Fixed Up Flora

fake trees

Please welcome the latest addition to our collection of artificial flora — a fake palm plant. It was all beat up, the fronds pulled out from the base and the moss that covered the foam base was torn away. Evidence suggests that someone had tried to pry it from its metal pot and then abandoned it. I’m basing this guess on the fact theat there was a mangled, potless fake ficus lying on the street beside the palm.

Fortunately there was a lot of Spanish Moss left over from the ficus massacre so I was able to reglue in the fronds and cover up the bald spots. It’s still not the prettiest of fake trees. On the other hand, it’s distress makes it look a little more real.
