Easy & Green Holiday Styling

Homegrown wheat grass is dropped into a vintage champagne glass and surrounded by fresh cranberries – it doesn't get easier (or cheaper) than this.

Charming vintage vessels look fresh and festive with this natural touch. Search thrift stores or your own china closet for anything that can hold a little bit of greenery.

I purchased my wheat grass seeds online and grew my grass in small plastic shot glasses. Pierce bottoms of cups for drainage, fill with potting soil and seeds – keep damp and in sunlight. Within about 7 days I had enough growth to create my arrangements.

Release grass from cups and drop in your vessel. You can leave the roots showing – or drizzle a handful of fresh cranberries around the sides.

Tuck these small arrangements around the house to add holiday cheer in every room – or give as a gift.

I bought my seeds from

I’m listening to older Bowie lately.

    I love the color combination and the freshness! I have just enough time to grow mine in time for Thanksgiving.
    Thanks for a great idea.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh. I have a feeling I’m going to need a little green in my house soon once the gray winter sets in. These are simply lovely! They warm my heart.

    just a little FYI…Cranberries are on sale for 89 cents a bag at Aldi. Hopefully you all have an Aldi grocery store in your neck of the woods…I know they are all over the US.
