You might have seen when I made some Front door forever decorations earlier this year and of course I have experimented with making forever plants inside for a while here, here and here.

This year, I branched out (!) into the backyard. Here is how I made another vine trellis type plant last weekend.

I started out with some mulch, a forever vine branch from JoAnns, a square container I got from a friend of mine when she moved and a trellis structure that I bought at JoAnns several years ago.

I added mulch to the pot.

Then I folded the vine branch in half and in half again.

And stuck it inside the trellis.

Then I stuck the trellis into the mulch and pulled gently on the leaves so they would stick out.

Here are 6 other even easier forever plants that I got at IKEA.

These SOCKER pots are only $0.79. I think their whole line of forever plants are called FEJKA. Here are the ones in the picture above.

I already had the terracotta pot from Home Depot. The brass pot is a new purchase from the thrift store at $1.29. I used this and this plant here.

I have a real one in the mix here. And this white pot and this pot with this and this flower.

I REALLY like their take on a Fig tree. They could even do a bigger version of this. I would buy it. I used the MANDEL pot for it from a previous year. Looks like it has been discontinued. In the white pot I have three of these (on the right) These are the same as the ones I used at my front door. The white pot is ceramic. The galvanized pot is the one size larger than the one I showed you before. $0.99. The "in the garden" sign is from a local artisan. I would love to make some more myself as I talked about here.

Here you can see all the clusters of forever plants although the trellis one is playing hide and seek behind the column. So here it is again...

I will be interested to see how much they fade in the summer sun. I will let you know.

Where do you stand with forever flowers? I see them used more and more inside. Would you use them outside though?
