Spring is around the corner and I'm thinking about refreshing my decor. My faux lavender planter I diy-ed a few years ago is still so beautiful to me!
Do you have a favorite DIY that you just can't let go of?
In cleaning out all my home decor, I came across this beautiful DIY Faux Lavender plants that I placed in a limewashed terracotta planter.
(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)
They are still one of my favorite artificial plants to bring out once the Spring temps start showing up.
The light purple flowers make me smile, so I can't let go of them just yet.
It's a super duper simple project that you can finish in just a few hours.
Simply grab a white ceramic pot, or whitewash some like I did, some artificial lavender plants, and wire cutters.
I did not get a green thumb, so I'm always looking for the perfect way to make silk flower arrangements look like the real thing!
I share the full tutorial on how to arrange the plant to make it look real in this post.
But if you are looking for real lavender flowers, I love these from Fast Growing Trees. They have lots of small plants to choose from. In fact, I'm looking for an outdoor tree from them for our front yard!

We had a complete design plan change up that I'm super excited about.
But it left our walls in really poor shape.
Yup - those are holes and damaged drywall that we found beneath the beadboard we removed.
But the new design plan has us super excited.
