Easy & Green Holiday Styling
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2010 | Comments: 6
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 www.wheatgrasskits.com.
I’m listening to older Bowie lately.
