Twigged Out Designs for Garden and Tabletop

June 8, 2012 by


Even in a contemporary garden, these rustic twig plant markers would be a nice accent.

I love mixing it up–rustic with sleek, shiny with matte, new with old. I’m going to include some twig elements in my summer decor, both indoors and out. Use your imagination to think up ways you might accessorize in your own personal style.

Brew yourself some Komchucha or cider, bottle it up, and carry it out with this twig-handled bottle carrier.

Ok, the twigs on this iron chandelier aren’t real, but still, I think this fixture would make be fabulous outdoors, or indoors as a way of bringing a bit of nature inside. Put a few handmade beeswax candles in them and you’re good to glow.

For tiny houseplants or air plants, these little twig-shaped hanging vases made me smile. Got a fence to hang them on?

What about placing one of these elegant little twig vases at each place setting on your table? Use a different flower for each of your guests.

I’ve got some antique (ok, maybe junktique) green leaf-shaped plates that would look pretty great set on this natural twig table runner.

Let’s go set the table. xx

    I really like what you have done with the twigs, can use the idea in my garden and like to recycle at all times. Ellen from Georgia

    Until I got to the teapot, I didn’t think you considered store bought garden accents. The twigs are a great project for the kids and the rest are perfect for doing something between planting, watering and weeding. Thank you.

    Searching Wise and desirable is usually a temptation difficult to resist for any one, of any age group. It is actually typically stated that initial impression could be the final impression; at least in case you have gone for any job interview or a date. Searching sensible, confident and attractive, adds anything added for your character, and helps other people make an opinion about you.
