If you lack a green thumb but like the look of houseplants, then you’ll want to use this simple trick.
This is by far the easiest (and cheapest) way to add some green to your home. You don’t have to buy plants. You don’t have to buy flowers. You don’t have to grow anything. Ready? Huh? Huh? Here’s what you need to do.
Go outside. (Bring scissors.) Snip some trimmings from evergreen plants in your yard (or a nearby park). Run inside so the neighbors don’t see some crazy lady trimming bushes in her slippers. Or, is that just what I looked like?
Once safely inside, slip your trimmings into your favorite mason jars or vases. You’ll get the “look” of luscious green plants without having to give the TLC required to keep them alive.
I’m getting a lot better at keeping my houseplants alive. But I like the ease of just heading outside to snip a bit of greenery and using the trimmings to decorate my home. When I’m craving something fresh in my house, but I can’t really justify the unnecessary expense of buying flowers, this is the perfect solution!
This is about as easy as it gets, black thumbs. What do you think of this trick for adding green to your home? I’d love to talk about it in the comments!
