As promised, I’m showing you how to make one of my favorite garden projects; creating planters out of candle lanterns.
I’ve spent many hours in the garden this season; it’s been wonderful to reconnect with nature, to get my hands and feet in the soil and to see the fruits of my labor grow and blossom.
I love whimsical, charming element to plantings; anything that brings a smile to the face is good and these sweet lanterns do just that.
To make a garden lantern, you will need:
-A lantern with an open top
-A Sheppard’s hook
-1-3 very small plants
To get started, add a bit of soil to the bottom of the lantern. Place 1-3 small pants into the lantern and fill in with more soil. Give the plants a little water and hang the lantern on the Shepherd’s hook. It is that simple!
You can see some of mine are getting a bit old and rusted but that just adds to their charm!
