It's so easy to style a cheap poinsettia plant and you don't have to spend a lot of money to do it.
Let me show you how as part of this month's Thrifty Style Team!
I love inexpensive poinsettias. I shared in a previous post proper care of poinsettias and how to keep them looking beautiful even when you didn't spend a lot on them.
I usually get one or more as soon as I see them for sale at Aldi's.
This year was no different. I got one when I could...I think it was early November...and I've been admiring it ever since.
When I first brought it home I left it all by it's lonesome self but then when I started to get serious about Christmas decorating I knew I wanted to do something pretty with it and that's when I made another trip to....the box!
If you've been following my Thrifty Style Team posts you may remember that my sister gave me a box with items from my parent's home...some were my Mom and Dad's and some of the items belonged to my Grandma.
For this post, I wanted to use my Grandma's vintage crock and I think it's the perfect home for my cheap poinsettia!
How to Style a Poinsettia
I brought the crock up from the garage...washed it and dried it....put a Styrofoam bowl inverted in the bottom and then added the poinsettia.
I took off the plastic sleeve and then started to add fresh cranberries (also from Aldi's -only 99 cents a bag) all around the base of the poinsettia.
Next, I added pine cones that my dad saved for me from his yard. The pine cones are over 20 years old and every year they come out for Christmas and I add them somewhere around my house.
I finished off with some small battery-operated lights and candy canes......
and that was it! Start to finish less than 5 minutes (way less) and other than the cost of the poinsettia and the cranberries, I didn't have to spend a penny! I had everything else on hand.
How do you style your poinsettias for Christmas?
