This lady used one of those hand blown glass balls that you can put around your garden, but she put it in a flower pot with spanish moss.
Right after I saw this, I made a trip to the one and only TJMaxx and what did I find? Yes, I found the perfect hand blown glass for my pots!
Now, my mom might hate this project because she's not a fan of anything fake....but the spanish moss isn't technically fake, it's just dried...so I broke her rules and tried this project anyway. (Sorry Mom!)
I decided to try this in the pots on the front patio because most of the flowers in them had mysteriously died (seriously, I watered them when I was supposed to and everything...it is truly a mystery). Don't worry, the two flowers that survived have been safely moved to the flowerpots in the backyard so nothing was wasted. I was also really tired of having to sweep all of the dirt and mulch off the patio and away from the welcome mat every time I watered, so I figured this would be an easy solution since it doesn't require water.
So, here is what I had before:
And here's what it looks like now:
So far, I'm liking it. I also think this will be good for the winter when everything is dead. Except then I'll have to change out the color of the moss to a more nuetral color, but it will look much better than nothing at all! I also figure that if I get tired of this I can just as easily plant more flowers in these since the gardening soil is still underneath the moss.
More changes on the front patio to come!
