Doesn’t it look pretty with the succulents? $ 1 2 9 !!! OUCH!
My favorite is Jennifer’s over at Dimples and Tangles. I love how elegant her orchid looks in the clam shell and have been on the lookout for my own ever since. She got hers from Ballard’s Backroom for a smokin’ hot deal!
Well I’m never that lucky so I had to rack my brain a bit and improvise!
I started out with this Plastic Clam Shell that I found for 99cents at Goodwill. I have seen them used as a soap display in bathrooms. We used ours as a chip bowl at our Luau – yes we are classy entertainers!
Pretty in orange, isn’t it? If you are not in the mood for Goodwill, you can orders your very own online at Amazon:
I contemplated different ways to make it look more like a shell and decided to use Rustoleum Stone Texture Spray Paint. I have used it before on my Outdoor Planters and Outdoor Garden Urn and love the texture!
You can also grab some from Amazon.com or your local hardware store.
I ended up using the darker speckled color as the white stone didn’t show up very well.
I am super pleased with the results and excited that it dried in less than a few hours.
I purchased the orchid from our local nursery and planted it in the large clam shell.
I am in LOVE! and for less that $10 I think it looks stunning on my kitchen table!
If you don’t have a green thumb then maybe try this faux orchid version and it will look just as stunning!
I would LOVE it if you would PIN this image below! Pretty Please!
