Our master bedroom doesn’t get much light (mostly because we always have the blackout curtains drawn) but I still wanted to have a little green. Using some stems I’ve had for years, I created a DIY faux fiddle leaf plant and it was the easiest project ever! (post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)
A few times I have been tempted to buy a large faux fiddle tree, but never did. I’ve had these stems for a few years and with a few supplies, I knew they would work perfectly.
- (2) faux fiddle stems
- pot or container of choice, I used this one!
- foam blocks
- dirt or moss
- Fill the container with foam blocks, staggering each layer until filled to the top.
- Push stems into the foam until they are sturdy.
- Bend and fluff the stems for a more “real” appearance.
- Use dirt or moss to cover the foam blocks.
It’s that simple! I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this project years ago. The faux plant fills the corner and adds a fresh design to our bedroom. I would say it looks very similar to my real fiddle in our guest bedroom! Every room needs a touch of green, and this DIY faux fiddle leaf was the perfect solution to our (usually) dark master bedroom.
