5 Favorites: Living Ornaments

Janet Hall November 23, 2012

Living ornaments add a touch of the unexpected to your holiday decor. And they will live on after the festivities end. Here are a few favorites:

Above: The Gold Leaf Cup Ornament measures approximately 2.5 inches in diameter and comes with a hanging hook and a tillandsia plant to perch inside; $22 each or $54 for a set of three at Flora Grubb.

Above: The Gold Leaf Cup Ornament is also available with a silver interior.

Above: The Succulent Ornament features a living succulent cutting mounted on a handcrafted ornamental hook, and comes tucked in a gift box. The cuttings will last for weeks – sometimes even sprouting tiny roots while hanging on the tree; $22 (or $55 for a set of three different varieties) at Flora Grubb.

Above: A twist on tradition, each glass Forest Floor Ornament contains a tillandsia along with moss, lichen and other forest trimmings. Even dried, the tillandsia air plant remains an attractive natural element in the Forest Floor Ornament year to year; $24 each or $74 for a set of four at Flora Grubb.

Above: The Elongated Drop Terrarium (plants not included) is 8.5 inches high and makes a beautiful ornament to hang on the tree or, better yet, in front of a window; $24 at Terrain.

Above: Three Spruce Ornaments made with petite bottles that hold a bit of moss and a sprig of conifer and a few drops of spruce essential oil; $26 for a set of three from One Gift World Etsy Shop.

N.B: Living ornaments are great gifts. For more ideas, see other gift guides in our House Gifts section.
