Twig Balls

This lovely mantlepiece display is so chic yet very simple to recreate. I found this photo on the web ages ago and it always makes me smile. 

The twig ball planter is what it is: it's a twig ball set into an old flower pot. The florist's frog can be found in most antique and collectables shops for a few pounds.

To make your own, you will need:

Simply take your old flower pot, fill it up with pebbles, sit the twiggy ball on it and place on your mantlepiece.

Lella Loves... Pot Pourri

If you really enjoy making presents, you could make one for a friend who has moved home, and especially if the person has been to your house and commented on your own creations. An option would be to wire in some Star Anise as they will give off a delicious aniseed fragrance.

All handmade housewarming gifts are appreciated if your friend likes pot pourri and similar things found in Nature's bounty.

Keep warm and pop back soon.
