Gifts from the Garden: Wire Baskets & Copper Pots

December 15, 2013

These are the results of an afternoon of planting in the warm fall sun shown above:


Wire Egg Basket Planted with Lemon Thyme / Faux Copper Pot, Toy Turkey and Oregano

1) These two matching wire egg baskets came from the consignment shop.  The planted one features Lemon Thyme (Thymus citriodorus).


2)   This faux copper pot is planted with Oregano and topped with a toy turkey.  I love all the details on the turkey.  

I wrapped his feet with wire, left a longish piece at the end and poked it into the soil, then covered the top with moss.  It looks like he's sitting in a bed of Oregano!  It took about 15 minutes to make. 

This would make a great Thanksgiving hostess gift.  A few of them lined up would be a fun centerpiece on a buffet table.
