18 Best Faux Olive Trees 2023
Last Updated on March 21, 2023
This year faux olive trees have surpassed the fiddle leaf fig tree in the interior design world as a favorite home decor plant, but finding the best faux olive trees that look real can be tricky. You don’t want to see plastic seams on the olives or droplets of glue “fake water” on the leaves. That will quickly turn your olive tree into a faux pas. My last greenery guide on where to buy the best fake plants has been wildly popular, but there is one artificial plant, in particular, that is clicked on more than all the others — you guessed it — faux olive tree decor. It’s having a moment, so let’s break it down with my top picks.

Faux olive trees can get pricy based on quality and size, but a 3′-4′ real olive tree will still run you around $100. Because real plants silently scream and fear death when I near them, I might as well flush that $100 down the toilet. Plant maintenance is not my forte…I blame the ADHD. Weekly watering does not fit into my busy routine, so every single plant you find in my home is artificial.

When I started sharing home decor, every comment was, “faux plants are tacky.” Ummm, rude and completely incorrect. When working with Decorist on the living room makeover, I was told not to use faux trees whatsoever. But I broke that decorating rule immediately, and when the interior designer reviewed the final reveal imagery, she had no idea my plants were fake.

FAQs And Tips For Cleaning Your Artificial Plants and Trees
Where can I find the best artificial plants that look real at an affordable price?
Here are quick links to my faux plant favorite online shops.
How do you keep faux olive trees clean?
Yes, but if you think about it, real plants get dusty too. I try to take my Swiffer Duster to the leaves once every other week, but if there’s one that has serious dust, I use Artificial Plant Cleaner. You simply take your plant outside, spray it, and let drip dry. Clean as a whistle. If you don’t mind using an aerosol, try using this silk flower and plant spray that is unscented. Both will add an extra level of dust protection to the leaves.
Can I make my fake olive tree look more real?
Yes! There are definitely more ways to make your artificial trees look more real. First things first, you want to fluff it after removing it from the box. It’s all squooshed in there, so separate, bend, and twist those straight branches for a more natural look. This will help give it a more realistic look.
If you do not love the olives, but you love the tree, cut ’em off! And lastly, to make your tree look more real, pop it into a cute planter or basket.
