Moss-Covered Cones

Moss Covered Cone

A few months ago, I ventured out of my neck of the woods to check out a store recommended by a friend and discovered the greater Little Rock area’s best kept secret…B.Layne Home.   I immediately fell in love with these Moss-Covered Cones and knew they would be versatile all year long.   The owner, Michelle, is super-talented…she can help you pull together any room, she paints many of the pieces for sale in the store, and generally has the “eye” for all things chic, affordable, and beautiful!

Michelle routinely posts lots of fun pictures full of inspiration from her store on Facebook, and these hydrangea-filled cones were inspired by one of her posts.

The artificial hydrangeas were purchased at Michael’s, along with the burlap ribbon. Pictured are 5 artificial hydrangeas, cut with wire cutters and secured into a small block of florist’s foam inside the cone.  (3 pure white and 2 pale green shown). At 60% off, these flowers were less than $3 a stem.  Not bad!

Wouldn’t these be beautiful for a bridal shower or a wedding reception?

FYI, I secured the simple burlap bow with these…

Here is the burlap ribbon from Michael’s that I used.  LOVE all the uses for this versatile burlap!  Be sure to download Michael’s app to your phone for instant coupons.

One other fun way to use these moss-covered cones this spring or summer (or anytime!) is to fill them with a fresh potted plant.  I found Kalanchoe last week at Wal-Mart.   The plants came in a few colors and are perfect for spring.

Tie a simple knot with the burlap ribbon, as shown below, or leave it as is.

Aren’t these blooms wonderful?  This is a Kalanchoe, easily found at floral departments everywhere.  I love the instructions on the tag shown below…”Makes a lovely gift.” Yes, they do!Plants as a Gift

The best part about these moss-covered cones is the price…only $24!!  Such a deal since you can use it year-round, indoors or outdoors…hang it on a door, from a chandelier, or even from a tree during an outdoor party!

Michelle at B.Layne Home ships, so be sure to stop by her Facebook page to contact her if you are interested in one of these cones!
