Simple “Free” Decorating Solutions – Basket of Hydrangeas

Sometimes the best ideas for decorating our home comes from the natural world around us.

When you’re hard pressed for ideas on how to bring your home to life, perhaps taking a peek outside at the “living world” around you will give you just the decorating tip that you’re looking for 🙂

There’s something very comforting about walking into a home that has a “bit” of nature there to greet you. I like to call it “feathering my nest” 🙂 When you think about it, you are actually bringing life into your home when you bring in items from the outside.

So many times, people automatically reach for what they already know (such as a bouquet of flowers) and their creativity seems to stop there. The next time you’re looking for a new little touch around your home, try to look past the things that automatically come to your mind & look for the unexpected.

This cabinet needed a little something on top, but I wasn’t sure what to use. I already had a nice basket that I was using to display some of my magazines, so I decided to fill it up with some dried hydrangea stems. I really like the way it turned out.

  1. Your basket looks beautiful above your neat black cabinet. I inherited some beautiful old Hydrangeas bushes when we purchased our very old home. I like to cut them and use them in one of my “natural” Christmas trees for the holidays.

    I so enjoyed reading your blog.

  2. Don’t you just love hydrangeas! They are one of my all time favorites! I plan on planting PILES of them around the edge of the forest near our new cottage.

    TIP: You can dry the hydrangea stems & sell them for a great price on ebay! The last time I looked, they were fetching between $4-$7 per stem!

    Sounds like your Christmas tree was beautiful! Great idea!

    Thanks for sharing & I’d love to see a picture of your Christmas decor!

  3. Dried money plants! And Pussy-willow bushes. They provide wonderful dried blooms!!!
    I have had florist shops ask me if I would sell them!
