DIY Spring Fern Plant

DIY Fern Plant

Hello all! Um… Can I say just how excited I am to be kicking off this post, as it means that spring is around the corner and I could not be more ready! Today I am sharing a super easy dollar store project that took me about 10 minutes to put together. And it is a DIY spring fern plant. To top it off, I get to join Krista at The Happy Housie as well as some very sweet friends who are sharing their spring projects too! 

I don’t know if you are anything like me, but I kinda have a hard time keeping ferns alive and well. I do pretty good with other house plants, but ferns don’t like me, haha… So I made this alternative option that has to like me as it is faux ;). It is simple and easy to throw together… 

Again, I grabbed these things at the Dollar Store, but you could get it all at a craft store as well. 

You will need: 

A small pot or container, fern stems, a foam square and then some moss.

To put this spring plant together, you will:

Place the foam square in the center of your container.

Here is where things get really easy… You will just start pushing the stems into the center of the foam. I began with one stem in the center…

I continued to add stems around the center.

Once you have finished inserting stems, then you can fill it all in and finish it off with moss.


I used a planter from the Dollar Store but didn’t love the color. You could always spray paint it before or I happened to have these cute burlap covers on hand. I found them at the local craft store and now was the perfect time to implement their use!

There you have it! This may be the easiest craft I have ever done, but that kinda makes me love it even more! And it looks pretty good too, if I do say so myself ;)…

These types of DIY are awesome because they are budget friendly, last forever and once you tire of it, you can just pass it on!
