An Australian Twig Christmas Tree

Here’s a simple little project to bring some festive flair to your garden this Christmas! An Australia Christmas tree with a twist that will brighten up your outdoor entertaining area or sparkle on your front step this Christmas.

Start with a pot in a festive colour like the gorgeous Primo Glazed pot from Northcote Pottery in ‘Forest Green’. Then add: red petunias, white calibrachoas and Turkey thyme all from Oasis Horticulture.

To finish the look off add an old eucalyptus brand and decorate with little ornaments. Just magic!

Pimp your pots!

Here are 3 clever ways to decorate pots, simply grab a terracotta pot and give it a makeover with some glue, paint and a few accessories.

This easy DIY project is a great way to Pimp Your Pots, using things you probably have lying around your home or garage.
