Inspired by our beautiful new postcards from Quill and Fox, I created a 3-D version using real succulents and air plants.
Because my husband Jeff is the artist of the family…I had him sketch out the terrarium using the postcard as a guide. I then mixed a few colors together to paint the outline.
Now comes the fun part. I’m all for projects that require me to visit the local flower market. But if you don’t have a good flower market near by, you can always visit your nearest nursery. When choosing the succulents I made sure to grab ones that had different shapes and textures. Adding air plants and branches gave me the finishing touches my canvas needed.
The obvious downfall to this project is that you can’t really glue the plants down onto the canvas since they probably won’t last long. You could use silk or plastic flowers as another option but I personally love using live plants.
Absolutely loved the finish project…and absolutely adore our new Quill and Fox postcards…in stores now.
