The holidays are such a special time and we want our holiday decor to look amazing. But we have to stay on budget since there’s lots of spending going on for so many other things. Things like gift giving, family gatherings, gift giving, special holiday foods and recipes, o and more gift giving LOL!
Do you remember when we shared our Christmas Kitchen Post which included lots of beautiful & FrugElegant style decorating ideas? Next to the stove was a super fun potted Christmas tree shaped Rosemary plant and it got quite a bit of attention. So now we would love to share with you how you can create one for your kitchen.
Christmas tree shaped rosemary plant ($8.99 from our local Trader Joe’s)
Terra Cotta Clay Pot with wide band top & saucer (needs the wide trim lip at top)
A little extra potting soil (for replanting plant)
Make sure clay pot is clean & thoroughly dry. Apply painter’s tape below the wide trim top part.
Paint 1-2 coats of chalkboard paint on the wide top trim area. Don’t worry if any paint goes in the inside of the pot, no one will see it when the plant & soil are planted.
When chalkboard paint is thoroughly dry, replant rosemary plant into pot.
Write a holiday something using chalk or chalk paint marker on the chalk painted band of the pot. We wrote Ho! Ho! Ho! on ours.
Wrap a wide ribbon, around the pot, under the trim. If the ribbon slides down, we recommend securing it in place with a little craft glue.
A beautiful potted rosemary plant with a few FrugElegant details has become our beautiful Christmas kitchen decor. Not only does it look great, it’s also a delicious herb …just pinch off and add to your cooking. And super bonus, it smells so good. It makes a great holiday gift for teachers, co-workers, a hostess gift and for friends & neighbors.
We hope you will look around at our many other FrugElegance Style Christmas Decor Ideas. And have a happy time decorating! A happy time entertaining! And a very special & wonderful Happy Holidays!
