This time of year, I can’t wait to bring out all my garden-themed decor! Vintage tools, pretty pictures of cottages with gardens all around, bunnies, and flower pots. We can’t do anything outside yet, since I live in the north, so the garden decor tides me over until I can! Today’s little project is perfect to tuck into the garden decor.
Simple Garden Theme Decor DIY
assorted small faux flowers/herbs
Start Your Garden Theme Decor with Texture
This DIY is to copy the idea of seed starting, except using faux foliage. Begin with a textural recycled compartment container. I used some seed starter packs I had laying around because I love their rustic brown texture. But you could also use an egg carton.
Add Weight to Your Floral Arrangement
This idea came from something I saw in a cute shop recently. But when I picked it up, it felt cheap. Weight=Value. Whenever I create a floral arrangement, I always hide some weight in the bottom. A baggie of sand or some cheap rocks is all it takes. The difference when you pick it up is huge!
Floral arranging tip: Weight=Value
If your recycled compartments have holes, put tape over them. Then hot glue pebbles to the bottom of each spot. You don’t need much; a couple rocks will be fine.
Fill Compartments with Moss
Using a hot melt glue gun, fill compartments with sheet moss, 3/4 full.
Add Snips of Faux Flowers
Then simply hot glue snippets of flowers into the middle of each compartment. You could also do herbs. Use a wood skewer to hold down stems while glue is drying. Add a little more moss on top to cover glue blobs.
This project is a great way to use up scraps from other floral projects. At a floral design workshop I went to years ago, they said if you could make money from the scraps on the floor, you were smart! Whether you sell or not, this project takes something ho-hum and turns it into something pretty.
Add a Final Garden Theme Accent to Your Arrangement
Tie and glue a couple strands of raffia or twine around your arrangement as a final textural touch. Add a little bit of glue at the corners to keep it in place. I did one of each, but think I like the wilder raffia look better.
Last but not least, finish any of your hot glue projects with the hair dryer to get rid of all those strings.
This simple little DIY project is perfect to tuck into any garden decor, whether in a cupboard display or on the tabletop. So easy and cute!
