Crafty Tuesday - Festive plants




Time for another 15 minute craft and this time we're making festive looking plants. In my part of the world, Christmas plants means julestjerner (poinsettias) and hyacinths. These pots can be used as a table decoration, brighten up a windowsill or maybe even as a teacher or hostess gift?

You'll need:
  • a plant - hyacinths work really well for this and can survive all temperatures! :)
  • some moss (got mine from the garden)
  • glass jars or plant pots
  • glitterglue, glitter, bits n' bobs
  • ribbon


Put your plant into the pot - I used an old glass jar.




Cover with moss. Add a bit of glitterglue to the tops of the leaves, or add a bit of glitter to the moss.


Tie a bow around the pot.



Voilà - we're done - how quick was that?! I also did one with 3 hyacinth plants (from Ikea) and add red glitter, red ribbon that says God Jul (Merry Christmas) and two candy canes...



When I was in Sweden on Sunday, I picked up some really cute candle holders in silver and red...




so they naturally got added into the mix as well...

Enjoy and happy Tuesday! :)
