This arrangement is as much about the rustic container as it is about the flowers.
Make a bark vase for winter blooms
A BIT OF FORAGING combined with some imaginative upcycling turns an old yoghurt tub into this gorgeous rustic pot!
First, harvest the bark from a naturally fallen tree – or an established tree in your garden if it has bark that can easily be peeled off. This is birch bark, which is soft and pliable. Give your plastic container a good wash and dry and, using a glue gun, slowly glue the strips of bark around the container, starting from the bottom and working your way up. Make sure you fold over and glue down the bark at the top of the tub so water doesn’t get between bark and plastic when you water your plants. You can leave some bark ends unglued so they curl to give a more natural look too.
