MAKING A FAKE DIRT LAYER I’m in love with this trick. This was random make it work moment. I usually fill even my fake plants with potting soil. This time I was out. The first thought I had was of course make a fake layer which will require way less dirt. I used a paper plant because it was sturdy yet flimsy enough to make it easy to work with. I started off by cutting into the paper plate and cutting out a small circle in the center for the branch. This will let you slide it right into place.
The last step is attaching your faux leaves. I simply used hot glue and attached the leave to all the stems. Make sure you apply enough hot glue. I also recommend letting your branch sit for a few days before attaching leaves as it let’s out all the moisture. My branch was pretty wet still and some of the leaves came off that I re-glued.
