As you know I absolutely love coming up with ways to bring the beauty of nature into my home...and Winter time is no exception. Below I will show you how to take a tree that is no longer living, and turn it into an elegant Winter Wonderland Tree for inside your home. All it takes is a plant container, spray paint, and some Winter ornaments. Enjoy!
My neighborhood bank was going to throw these beautiful dead Ficuses away. So of course I brought them home as I knew that I could turn them into something elegant. I love the way the trunks intertwine and the drama they posess.
Simply spray paint the tree a flat white...a light dusting will do. Be sure not to overdo it as you want it to look as natural as possible. One coat should do the trick! I then placed it into a plant container and added moss to the base around the tree.
Add some Winter decor to the branches. I pulled apart a glittery Winter decor pic and added the pieces to the branches.I love to add a touch of wildlife to my pieces. Here I placed a beautiful family of birds that are actually Christmas tree decorations that I clipped to the tree. I also adorned it with a cute little nest. The eggs are actually little ornaments!
I decided to add some back light to the tree to give it more of a pop! This was done by placing a spotlight behind the container. You can find one at any hardware store.
I love the way that it adds a touch of Winter Wonderland elegance to my space. All it took was a tree that I salvaged from a bank, some spray paint, and a few decorations. Remember that creativity and inspirationa can be found anywhere to bring the beauty of the outdoors, into your home.
I love it...I hope you love it too! Happy Holidays!
Winter holidays are one of my favorite times of year! From the beautiful lights to the wonderful colors. Below I will show you how to bring beauty to your pots even during the cold Winter months. Always ask your local floral shop what organic material will be hardy enough to last until Spring. Also, don't be afraid to use really pretty faux items to adorn your pots. These particular golden pinecones and holly berries are faux items that will last throughout Christmas, then I can just pluck them out after. Happy Holidays!
