I love ferns but sadly I cannot grow them in my house.I have to use silk ferns. Yes I said silk.I refuse to apologize for using faux ferns! There is nothing wrong with silk ferns but I have discovered a trick to make them even more realistic.
I like my silk ferns to look like they have been growing for a while. I like them long and lush.To make them look that way here is what I do.
Supplies you will need:
Two fern bushes
floral wire(I got a package of individual stems)
Now take two of the longest stems and find the spot where the leaves start to get shorter.The leaves will start small at the tip, then increase to full size,then start to get smaller again as they reach the top.Using your wire cutters cut one stem at the top.Cut the other stem at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial!
