Yesterday I went for a bike ride and looked for fresh plants growing in alleys and curbsides. When I got home, I played around with what I had found and made these plant bundles. They can be hung wherever you like and even decorated with holiday ribbons to get festive for the holidays.
Tips- if you would like to try:
~ Go for a walk and take a pair of clippers with you. Look for greens and flowers that you are drawn to with interesting colors and textures. Be mindful of where you are snipping. I generally only snip from very bountiful bushes and trees in alleys and near curbs. Often, you may be surprised that there may be enough in your own yard to work with.
~Once you return with your harvest, sort through what you have and play around with different arrangements.
~Careful of thorns- I had to trim Bougainvillea as it has many thorns on it’s branches.
~Lastly, use a strong twine or green floral wire to bind the branches tightly together.
Have fun, explore, & connect with Plants!
