First I'll give a brief summary of what's going on.
I'm working for my dad who owns a hotel. I've been doing a lot of maintenance and menial work since we haven't been very busy at all. [Hopefully things will pick up in the summer] One of my jobs was to fix up the fake trees/plants on the 4th floor where the pool is.
We have about 10 fake trees around the pool that seem to think autumn has struck and decided to shed their leaves. I've tried hot gluing the salvageable ones back on and fluffing them up a bit, but they're shot. The hot glue only melts the plastic causing even more leaves/branches to fall off.
My question for you guys is...is there a good type of glue out there that doesn't have to get so hot, that will stick quite quickly?
How about maintenance and care...they're in a humid environment that gets lots of sun, which cause them to fade and get brittle.
Or, have any of you been to any stores where there are cheap[er] fake plants? ['Cause I know that most likely these trees will look pretty pathetic even after I've fixed them up a bit. ] My dad just doesn't want to spend too much on fake plants, even though they really do spruce up the place a bit.
I wish I had a picture of the tree I started to work on...it looks so sad. LOL!
[In case you're interested, here's a link to the hotel's website which is being renovated, so it's pretty plain right now. My other task is to take new pictures of everything for the site, which I'm excited about. ]
