4 ways to get green for the holidays

01 November 2015

The trees may be bare outside, but inside is looking greener than ever. We love a healthy dose of greenery to liven up a space. But the same old wreath? You know we had to turn it up a notch.

1. Looking for a big impact without a crazy amount of effort (or money)? Refresh a GADDIS basket by lacing it with vine-like greenery, pinecones, and other natural elements. Run a cord and bulb through the base, and—poof!—you’ve got yourself a cool new lamp.

2. We’ve taken a few liberties with a Christmas favorite. That’s right, the wreath. Take a few simple white frames, gently wrapping greenery around them and fastening with wire or twine (confession: we even glued a few leaves on). 

3. Try going vertical with a hanging planter. Fill up the insides with flowers and plants, and decorate the outside with rustic touches of moss. Pretty, isn’t it?

4. Creating a full window scene is actually easier than you might think. And crazily enough, you can do it with a muffin tin and a few beautiful glasses. Simply arrange hyacinth bulbs in each and finish them off with a soft touch of moss.
