For the July 4th holiday, I picked up a few cheap 2-4 inch house plants from Wal-Mart. And potted them up for this area next to my computer desk in holiday-appropriate red and blue pots.
I was going for a nautical theme, so I placed the garden vignette underneath my seaside paintings.
As you probably know, indoor plants help to purify the air you breathe. So it’s not only nice to look at, but good for your health.
I added stones to cover the dirt in the plant, above. Decorating the top is fun and pretties up the plain dirt. It also helps to keep the moisture in.
This one I decorated with seashells…
And this one flat marbles.
With your hot glue gun, attach red and blue buttons to a box filled with seashells.
Add an old vintage watering can to the mix, and you’ve got real Americana for the holiday weekend.
