Theme Garden Design Process: Ornamentation
Garden ornament is the frosting on the cake.
These are the details that make your space extra-special like lighting, containers, art, mirrors, banners, fountains or any additional tidbit you can imagine.
Please, please keep it simple. Choose one or two special ornaments so that the final result is focused. Too many items will make your space chaotic and ultimately uncomfortable.
With knitting I could have spun off into many directions, but I decided to keep it simple and elegant by focusing on the yarn ball itself...or a sphere. Below are some of the things that spun off that idea (no pun intended).
3. I love the simplicity of this terra cotta pot filled with stone spheres. It reminds me of a basket filled with yarn, but weather proof!
6. I just whipped up this container design myself. I imagined it being stone, with yarn strands carved in.
We are finally approaching the last part of step four....choosing plant materials! This will take me a few days, but if you have any ideas for plants to get started, I'd love to hear about them in the comments below or on Facebook.
