Today’s tour is about decorating for Christmas in my DIY Greenhouse. The greenhouse is decorated using foraged greenery & thrifted goods to create a festive feel.
If you’ve followed me from the beginning, you know that I dreamed of having my own Greenhouse for years.
The dream came true in the spring of 2020 when my husband and I built my Dream Greenhouse.
Table of contents
I still can’t believe we did it.
This is the first Christmas tour, and you know I had to deck her out.
In addition, I’ve joined some of my favorite Greenhouse Owners to share Christmas in the Greenhouse.
Come along on the tour with me and be sure to check out all the other Greenhouse tours listed at the end of my post. If you are coming over from Jennifer at The Flowering Farmhouse, welcome!
Deck the DIY Greenhouse Porch
First, the exterior is filled with foraged greenery from around our property. The DIY cedar garland was a quick and easy project, in addition to the cedar and pine wreath.
Even the rock wall received a festive pine wreath.

Foraged DIY Christmas Decor
Gathering from around the property, cedar, pine, pinecones, holly, and magnolia were used to transform the front of the DIY Greenhouse for the holidays.

Thrifted Containers Filled with Greenery
I love filling containers with greenery during the holidays. Most of the containers are either thrift store finds or were found on the roadside.
Christmas Inside DIY Greenhouse
Next, let’s take a look inside the greenhouse.
Because I wanted to continue the natural theme, most containers are filled with foraged greenery and plants that still look surprisingly good for December.
The DIY Solar Chandelier, repurposed, is decorated with a beaded garland and greenery for Christmas.
A Table for Two
I love to use the greenhouse on warmer days for an impromptu dinner party.
Because it’s just my husband and me, the table is set for two.
The bird dishes are a collection from many years ago and are paired with blue pottery dishes I received just after I was married. They are definitely vintage now. LOL
In addition, a thrift store tablecloth adds a romantic touch to the rustic greenhouse.
The Place Setting
In addition, antique pewter cutlery and green napkins are wrapped with dollar store garland and fresh cedar.
Rustic Holiday Centerpiece
Instead of a traditional centerpiece, I combined several rustic pieces to create a unique gathering.
I began with an old rustic candle opera, a basket full of pine and pinecones, a green plant, and a bottle brush tree.
Finally, an Antler tray from Arthur Court Designs helps to complete the centerpiece.
The bottle brush tree sits on a vintage cigar box and is surrounded by one of the DIY Candle Rings.
And the Thrift Store Basket is filled with pine branches and pinecones. Another vintage touch is a string of old Christmas lights, which add color to the natural basket.
Christmas Tree & Stockings
In addition, to setting the table, no greenhouse would be complete without its own Christmas Tree and Christmas Stockings.
Another favorite project is the apothecary cabinet. Believe it or not, it is an IKEA Hack, and you can see the DIY repurposed project tutorial here.
Plant Storage in the DIY Greenhouse
One of my goals in building a greenhouse is to save as many plants as possible for next Spring. As you can see, many are stored under the DIY potting table, and I’m sharing these tips on keeping plants overwinter.
In another little corner of the greenhouse is an antique tiny desk for record-keeping; however, today, it is filled with Christmas charm.
I added a candle from Antique Candle Co., which helps to add a natural greenery scent to the greenhouse.
In addition, the ironstone wall planter was a treasured thrift store find and is perfect for holding fresh magnolia leaves.
Would you like to know the secret to keeping fresh cedar garland from falling apart? It’s so easy, and I shared the details here.
That concludes Christmas in my DIY Greenhouse, but there is much more to see. Next up is Tracey at Hydrangea Farmhouse, and she grows the most gorgeous hydrangeas I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait for you to see her potting shed.
