Here is how I was able to re-purposed an out of date ficus tree into a fresh Spring Blossom Tree for my front Porch!
Did anyone else have a love for ficus trees back in the day? Well, like many of my home decor trend obsessions, I quickly tired of cleaning them. So needless the say, when we discovered a dusty old ficus tree in my mom’s house, it was quickly added to the donation pile.
I certainly didn’t want it because my obsession had been over for years. I was currently obsessing over a cherry blossom tree for my porch. However, this was proving to be a budget problem. My budget didn’t quite meet the cost of the one I was obsessing over.
Can you guess what happened next?
Just as we were about to load the dusty ficus tree onto the truck, inspiration struck!!!! much to my husbands dismay, I loaded that dusty thing into my less than clean car and brought it home with me!
My husband was not thrilled to say the least. This was not the first thing, from my mom’s house, that I couldn’t let go of. However, this might have been the dirtiest. Plus, I have a habit of shopping thrift stores and have been known to bring home items that need repairs. One such item was an old silverware box. See the transformation here!
I was excited because I had a plan. First I needed my supplies.
- Old Ficus Tree (check donation store, your mother’s or grandmother’s house)
- Wooden Twigs – Hopefully you can get these free as well.
- Faux Stems that resemble Cherry Blossoms or other Blossom that your desire.
