Fall Decorating Idea: Garlands of Money Plant Seed Pods

September 10, 2011

Simple garland of money plant seed pods over my dining room door

I love garlands.  The branch above my dining room doorway is almost a permanent fixture, but I like to hang different things from it to reflect the changing seasons or holidays.  For fall, I sewed together a garland of seed pods from money plants, and then looped it around the branch a few times.  I think it gives a lovely all-natural decorative touch to the room.

And, of course, I was inspired to do a watercolor painting of the colorful pods.

  1. We have a large pecan branch bolted up in the corner of our living room. In the same spirit as yours.

    As soon as I saw the seed pods at the beginning of the post my smile was already waiting for the watercolour at the end. Thanks. 🙂
