Guest Picks: Bring a Bit of the Outdoors Inside
And if a terrarium isn’t your thing, there are enough imaginative vases that sit, hang or speak art to fill your longing for the coming warm and sunny months! Of course, if you’ve got a bit of a black thumb, (like I do, sadly), you can always spring for a decorative river rock doormat. It doesn’t require much upkeep, but it does bring a bit of the outside to you.
To help you get started, I’ve gathered my favorite finds for brightening up the great indoors for you here. Enjoy! — Sasha from Lemonade Makin’ Mama
These planters are spectacular when filled with succulents and other easy-to-care-for plants. Change the look with each season, and they will make great conversation pieces on a bookshelf or console table.
I am dying to get one of these for my front door. It kind of makes me think of the spa.
My favorite thing about handmade pottery are all the wonky shapes and unique looks. These vases look like they are intentionally squashed and imperfect. I’d love to tuck some single blooms in them and display a few in my kitchen window.
I love all of the creative ways you could use these. I’d probably hang a few in different colors in a random pattern on the wall.
I do love the simplicity of a glass house. It’s a sweet way to showcase a greenhouse-loving plant.
Tuck some moss in alongside plants, or use it to fill in sparse places. I have a bunch gathered around some white candles on my dining table, and I enjoy the earthy scent it lends to the air.
Sometimes simple is best. I love this as a planter or vase, and the ombré gold/copper color is right on trend.
These are perfect for a little desktop. You could use them for seasonal wildflowers.
This terrarium would be a darling addition to a side table. I love its classic shape.
This little bud vase is one of my new favorite things! My kids are always bringing me little flowers from the yard with teeny, short stems, and this is the perfect solution for displaying all their treasures from outside.
The funky shape of these glass terrariums would look great on a coffee table.
I love the bright pops of color inside these little terrarium vases.
I love the pretty patina on the base of this tiny terrarium. It would be perfect for a little fairy gardenscape.
And if keeping a plant alive isn’t your thing, bring some of the outdoors in with a stone-shaped sink liner.
Moss-covered rocks make great filler and display. I’ve used mine in a variety of ways, and they are perfect to bring out for the springtime.
Perfect for single blooms, these sea glass bottles look lovely when used en masse lining a long table.
Sometimes life gets way too serious, so this peeled banana vase is a fun way to lighten the mood. It would be a great gift idea when you need to bring someone flowers or greenery for special occasions.
These make for terrific hanging art when strung up in a bunch and filled with small plants or succulents.
I could see this on a screened porch area. It’s pretty enough to leave empty, but I am loving the way it looks with favorite plants displayed inside.
These hanging terrariums are shaped like Christmas ornaments. I think you could fill the bottoms with tiny rocks and add all kinds of goodness. I’d love to hang a few on the patio, above my potting bench.Next: Make a Cool Plant Shelf in an Afternoon — No Saw Needed
