I don’t know about you, but I am mildly obsessed with air plants. I love how versatile and delicate they are! Since I kill any plant under the sun, even succulents, I was super excited when I found some faux air plants at the craft store. I came up with these cute little air plant ornaments using plaster as a way to incorporate them into my Christmas decor! This project is so versatile that these little guys could be left up well after Christmas. You could also add a magnet to the back and stick them on the fridge. They couldn’t be easier to make!
- Air plants (real or fake)
- Small paper cups
Mix up the plaster and pour into the paper cups. (I found my tiny cups at the dollar store.) While the plaster is still wet, insert a piece of twine into the sides or a loop at the top. Take a pencil, pen, marker lid, crayon or any long cylinder and wrap it with a bit of plastic wrap. Stick it in the middle of the plaster while it is still wet. When the plaster is dry, take out the pencil and you have a perfect hole for your air plant to live. The plastic wrap makes it easier to remove the pencil without damaging the plaster.
