There are many creative ways to bring the outdoors into your home using materials you can buy at your local hardware store or craft shop.

The first idea is to create a garden within a side table. This way the garden becomes functional and is the perfect way to break up a living room space. Instead of purchasing a boring end table with a lamp on it — create a mini garden instead! All you need is a small end table with depth on the surface — or you can create your own box using five small pieces of hardwood. The idea is to create a mini outdoor garden within the surface of the table, while adding a decorative birdhouse or fence to give it that rustic feel.

The second option is to use a giant clear bowl or vase and plant different spices, flowers or greenery to fill the inside. You can also create a theme for each garden such as, a desert theme with cacti. Create the garden you always dreamed of and maintain it with ease in your own home!

Lastly, you can transform a boring shelving unit into a beautiful garden space with a variety of potted plants. Rearrange your plants on the shelf and add gardening accessories like a watering can or gardening books to complete the look. Your passion for gardening will speak volumes in your home with this fresh design. It’s the perfect way to show off that green thumb of yours!
