The is a project that I’m excited to share. I made 3 really simple yet pretty winter terrariums using table salt! It’s always fun to create decorations using everyday things that most of us have laying around in the house.
The video shows all 3 terrariums. Have a look and let me know what you think!
I found these cute galvanized Christmas buckets at the garden center last weekend. The had some nice details, pretty wooden handles and weren’t too expensive so I got a two.
I figured they’d look pretty for Christmas and can be used afterwards as well. I’ll just rotate them to hide the Christmas text, then plant them up with annuals for spring. Spring colors usually look pretty and fresh in silverish containers.
More and more Christmas decorations are sneaking into the house, like this Christmas succulent arrangement. I put it together today using plants and decorations that I already had.
Quick arrangements for Christmas are fun! You can push the light and water boundaries since they only need to last for a few weeks. When Christmas is over these plants are going back to a spot under grow lights and eventually I’ll use them for other arrangements.
Today is Amaryllis day in Sweden! I’ve celebrated by planting a giant Amaryllis “White Star”. This time I tried something different than a regular pot. I used a simple vase with forest moss around the edges, regular potting soil in the middle with one huge amaryllis bulb. That’s it!
My front porch got a Christmas makeover this weekend. I just gathered the wreaths and winter containers that i’ve made last week and put string lights on. We’re lucky to live close to many big forests so getting greens and using them for these types of projects is easy 🌲💡🌿
You can make this arrangement using Amaryllis bulbs or like I did, using bulbs that have already been planted. If you’re using unplanted bulbs you might want to plant them a few weeks before you put in the greens. The bulbs will need 6-8 weeks to bloom, depending on light and temperature. That’s quite along time for the greens to be indoor and you want to avoid them drying out.
After you’re finished, water in the arrangement. Continue to give small amounts of water every week until the Amaryllis has bloomed 💦
I can’t wait until the Amaryllises begin to bloom. Hopefully it’s look as striking as I imagine it with 8 huge red flower 🌲🌺🌿
