DIY Spring Twig Planter

Hello my sweet friends, I sure hope that this week has been going well for you.
Mine has been a mixed up pot of sewing, projects, and meeting some lovely ladies for book club.
We are reading Reconstructing Amelia this month, have you read it?

Today I would like to share with you one of the easiest and sweetest DIY Spring projects that you could ever make.

Seriously, if you have about 45 minutes to spare, a few twigs, hot glue, succulents, moss and sweet rose buds you will have made a twig planter.

You can make this Spring planter while you drink a cup of coffee, tea, sparkling water or hot cocoa.

Spring-Jemma-DIY

The largest commitment you will have in making this twig planter is a stroll through a park, or a hike in the hills to collect the twigs.

I know this DIY planter is too early to make for many of you, because you are covered in a blanket of snow.

So, if this project catches your eye, but the time is not right to make it, just Pin it!



planter-twig-jemma

So, you see I collect all sorts of things when I go for my walks, as well as take photos.

I share many of my photos on Instagram, because by now, you know me well enough to 

know that nature is always joyful to me.


Planter-twigs-Jemma


As I walk I sort things out.

I pray, ponder, and when I return home my heart is healthier and so are my mind and soul.

My walks are a therapeutic journey for me, they loosen my joints and help sustain my well 

being.



At Home With Jemma

I really do hope you give this project a whirl, it is a nifty thing to do, while we wait for Spring.

To make this DIY Spring twig planter you will need a few supplies.

1- 8 inch clear plastic pot and saucer (Lowes about $3.00)
or coffee can, coolwhip container...etc. 
Be sure to puncture hole in the bottom of container for drainage.

2- Hot glue gun and sticks.

3-Twigs-break or saw in length to cover up your choice of container.

4-Succulents (garden centers)

5-Rosebuds faux, dried, or silk.

6-Potting soil.

7-Spanish moss.

8- Ribbon (optional).
At Home With Jemma

Settle yourself into your favorite crafting nook, plug in your glue gun and glue away.

When all of the twigs are glued in place, add potting soil, succulents, rose buds and moss.

Optional-hot glue ribbon into place and water succulents.

A few years back I put together a very simple
Decorating With Moss Posts and Baby's Breath, another great option for Spring decorating.
