How to make a mini indoor garden that lasts forever!

how to make an indoor planter

It is not always amazing weather to do some gardening, I do love being outdoor but what if I told you, you could bring the outdoors indoors? Well kind of...  My craft idea means you get the look of being outside with minimal gardning mess and no watering plants!

Step 1:

Cut your florist foam to fit your planter, we just used an average kitchen knife to do that. We used a glue gun to secure it to the planter, This is optional but does keep it in place.

Step 2:

Carefully place your plastic grass stands along the edge of your florist foam creating a perimeter of grass. Keep a few pieces of grass strands for later.

Step 3:

Place all you silk flowers in to the florist foam  making sure you spread out doubles and create lots of different heights in order for it to look more natural.

Step 4:

Place the remaining grass to fill out an gaps creating a mini garden. Add some butterfly cake toppers or you can use wire and organza butterflies to add additional interest to your indoor plant box.

To finish off we wrapped an organza ribbon round the planter and tied a bow. Making it an ideal gift too.
