I'm totally in love with it although it has given me some issues. I first got the idea via Elise. Her version was alive and incredibly, incredibly gorgeous. But I have a black thumb and new this would never be an option for me. I saw her project and it sat in the back of my mind for a few months.
I filled it up with floral foam which was incredibly messy! I tried to not leave many gaps although the photo below has some large ones that were later filled.
I bought succulents on sale at Michaels. I also bought a few fake plants [the bushy potted kind] and broke those apart. Those were the best for filling in after I placed the larger "blooms."
It was pricier than I expected and we have to keep the door shut thanks to Lola's extreme interest in it. But it makes me smile every time I see it :) Thanks, Elise!
