It’s time for a Dollar Store DIY using a faux fiddle leaf branch. I will be honest in that I did not find the branch at the dollar store; I found it at At Home for $3!
But 90% of the rest of the items used can definitely be found at the dollar store, including cool planters that you can zhush up yourself.
A big thanks to my friend Rachael from This is Our Bliss for hosting this blog hop. I get so many great ideas from these posts, and perusing Dollar Tree for inspiration for these challenges is a great way to spend some time.
Faux Fiddle Leaf on a Small Scale
Faux fiddle leaf trees, plants, branches, etc. have become HUGE in the home decor world, and while I love the lush look of the faux fiddle leaf tree, I wanted to bring the style into my home via a smaller plant.
The blue and white chinoiserie-ish planter was just sitting in a closet, which is why I used it for this tutorial. Dollar stores do have a TON of planters that you can paint or Mod Podge anyway you’d like.
In fact, I have a few popular tutorials for how to Mod Podge Dollar Tree items to make them look like beautiful blue and white china. You can learn how to make DIY blue and white china chargers or create your own blue and white chinoiserie ornaments.
I think using a big, lush faux fiddle leaf branch to create a semi-oversized plant is a great way to bring in some greenery for those smaller spaces in your home. I opted to put this on a small end table next to one of my recliners.
If you’ve read any of my other DIY tutorials for making your own floral arrangements, then the steps below will look very familiar to you.
I know my Dollar Tree has a ton of faux greenery options right now, so while you’re picking up dry foam, Spanish moss and river rocks from there, definitely check out their faux greenery options.
You likely won’t find a fiddle leaf branch, but a cluster of big, green palm leaves can also have the same look.
I know some people don’t love faux florals or plants, but to me they add a punch of color and are inexpensive enough to have around in a few spots for those of us (me!) that have a habit of killing real, live plants.
