This is my first lifestyle piece and since I've been doing a little DIY, of the interior variety, I thought for my first post this will be a wonderful introduction. Sometimes you want to spruce up a room or hallway or maybe a bathroom. Here is what I did on a very low budget.

1) Find pots of your choice
Whilst out doing my weekend shopping I spotted these fab pieces. One a milk jar and another a sugar bowl. These look fab and what is even more impressive is that they cost me only a £1 each. I snapped those pretty quick. You may have something laying around at home waiting to be put to good use.

2) Get Your Compost 
Ok I didn't have any compost, so I got some dirt from the garden. Since I was doing this inside I put the dirt in a margin tub. I used cuttings from a Lavender plant that I have in my garden and a Spider plant.

3) Time for the fun part
Fill your pots with your dirt or compost. Some people like to add stones in the mix. Whatever your choice go for it.  Then plant your cuttings.

4) There you have it.
Your finished in expensive decor. From start to finish in 10 minutes.


  1. Easy, low cost AND pretty. Tick, tick, tick. I might just give this try!

    1. Thank you. I'm all about a little bit of low cost here and there. It aslo brings out your creativeity.
