First, Pulled and her partner placed the faux tree on top of several broken-down cardboard boxes. Next, they surrounded it with packing peanuts to keep it stable, before adding leftover foam at the top. Finally, they covered the packing materials with faux Spanish moss, and voila! A convincingly real olive tree for their apartment living room.
“One of the many little hacks we pulled off when we first moved into our apt,” Pulles captioned the video.
Clearly, plenty of fellow TikTokers were also taken with her simple DIY solution. At the time of writing, Pulles’ video has racked up over 452,500 likes and 4.3 million views in just three days.
“This is so smart and it looks so good!” one user commented.
Another TikToker provided a suggestion for people who prefer the look of stones to Spanish moss: “Fill the pot with foam or something and then mix stones and glue together and put them on top, it looks really nice. We do this at work.”
There you go, faux plant parents!
