DIY Botanical Art/Decoration - Ways of Bringing the Garden Indoors

I confess to having several house plants to help me get through the winter months.

Visits to greenhouses and conservatories help, but I just love bringing elements of the garden into my home. They help me cope with the short days of Jan-Feb.

Such as:

1) In the form of wall hangings:

You can press:

  • Dried leaves
  • Flower petals
  • Seeds

Make really simple selections or use your creative side to make patterns or designs.

2) Cuttings/stems

  • Dogwoods
  • Pussy Willows
  • Alder 
  • Bulrush
  • Grasses

3) Framed garden photos:

Whether they be of flowers from your own garden or ones like this free option on - they bring warmth and a cheery reminder of the growing season to come!

4) Dried Flowers, leaves, fruits and cones arrangements:

Late summer option

Winter option

So before the garden goes to rest in Late Summer - Autumn, collect items you love. Bring them indoors overwinter and allow them to remind you of the lush growing season you'll create this up-coming year!
