Today I have here for you something unexpected! Yes. It is DIY. Honestly, I am not much a do-it-yourself person. But I like to decorate my room. A lot. And not only my room actually...I've also made some of these for my mum. In this article I want to focus on plants/flowers. I think it's nice to have a little bit of nature indoors. It gives the room a little bit of life. That is what I like about it.
The reason I decided to make these beauties for myself is Pinterest. Yes. I still don't have enough. But these ones are so easy that even a kid can do it.
What you need:
a flower (rose, peony...)
wide transparent glass/vase/bowl
Cut off your flower 2cm from the bloom. Then half-fill chosen glass with water, so you have still space for flower. Now put the bloom inside. It lasts about 4 to 5 days until it starts to fade.
2) SUCCULENT IN A JAR
What you need:
glass jar or candle holder
succulent (I used Houseleek)
I wanted to make something like this for ages. I just love how airy and exotic it looks. You can use glass jar or candle holder. Which one you prefer or own. This time I used a candle holder from "Nanu-Nana" which was (suprisingly) on sale and I instantly fell in love with it. It says "Lots of travel for everyone"and there is also a little white sailing boat. I knew right away what I want to do with it. Succulents. Oh yes.
With a small spade put a bit of soil into your jar.
When you have about 3cm (from the bottom) of soil in your jar it's time to choose what succulent you want and place it in the middle.
Water your plant so it doesn't die.
That is it. I hope it was helpful. If you recreate it, be sure to tag me in your instagam photo!
