How to Create a Decorative Garden Window


If you have a sunny window in a room where you don't have to worry about privacy, this décor idea will provide a country home feel along with the beauty of Mother Nature's flowers.

What you will need for this project:

1. Rope about 10 inches longer than your window is wide

2. 6 small flower pots with handles (small tin buckets work well also)

3. 6 clothespins

4. Potting soil

5. 2 decorative pots

6. 2 mug hooks

7. 2 potted plant trellises

8. An assortment of seeds or seedling herbs and leafy plants such as lettuce, spinach, parsley, and chives

9. 4 morning glory seeds or two morning glory plants

10. 1 other somewhat tall decorative item that fits into the décor of the room

11. Measuring Tape

12. Pencil

How to Create this Look:

- If you are using morning glory seeds, you will first want to put them in warm water and leave them there for about 24 hours. This helps the seeds have a shorter germination time.

- Put potting soil in the 6 small pots and 2 decorative pots.

- Plant the seeds or seedlings according to directions on seed packet.

- For placing the rope, measure how tall your window is then divide this number into fourths. Measure that length from the top of the window and make a mark with a pencil on both sides. For example if your window is 36 inches tall you will make a mark at 9 inches from the top.

- Put in the mug hooks where you made your marks.

- Tie a secure knot in both ends of your rope.

- Push one knot over a mug hook.

- Slide the handles of the small pots onto the rope.

- Carefully push the other knot over the mug hook.

Caution: If you have ceramic or glass pots be careful at this step. Slide the pots to the center slowly and have them next to each other so they do not slide and break each other as your are moving your rope up to put the knot over the mug hook.

- Evenly space your pots and keep them in place by putting a clothespin on the handle and rope.

- Push the 2 potted plant trellises into the 2 decorative pots, and place one on each side of the window.

- Put your other decorative item in the center.

- Water your plants, and wait for Mother Nature to do the rest.
