Christmas In Our DIY Greenhouse

If you love a Christmas greenhouse, you will love today’s DIY Greenhouse Christmas Tour. Today’s tour is about Christmas decorating in our DIY Greenhouse. The greenhouse decorations consist of foraged greenery and 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 our Dream Greenhouse.

I still can’t believe we did it.

For our first Christmas in the DIY Greenhouse, you know I had to deck her out. In addition, I’ve updated the tour to include other Christmas Greenhouse ideas that I used to decorate this year.

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.

A recent addition is a thrifted concrete angel. She holds holly leaves and is surrounded by more foraged greenery.

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 repurposed DIY Solar Chandelier was decorated with a beaded garland and greenery for Christmas the first year.

This year, simple forage pinecones are tied with pretty ribbons and hung from the chandelier.

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

The little clay pots that hold tiny moss balls are a perfect touch for the greenhouse.

In addition, antique pewter cutlery and green napkins are wrapped with dollar store garland and fresh cedar.

Simple Table Decorations

If you don’t want to set the table for a dinner party, here is a simple table vignette to help fill the space.

I began with a green and white buffalo plaid tablecloth to anchor the table vignette.

Next, I filled the copper boiler pot with fresh-cut magnolia leaves and surrounded arrangement with a strand of vintage Christmas lights.

The vintage Christmas light box adds to the vintage charm of the vignette.

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.

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.

Greenhouse Christmas Tree & Stockings

In addition to setting the table, no greenhouse would be complete without its own Greenhouse Christmas Tree and Christmas Stockings.

The DIY distressed ticking stockings are easy with a no-sew option tutorial.

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.

Next to the cabinet is the Christmas tree filled with vintage-inspired garland and grapevine balls.

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.

Greenhouse Office

In another little corner of the greenhouse is an antique tiny desk for record-keeping; however, today, it is filled with Greenhouse decorating charm.

In addition, the ironstone wall planter was a treasured thrift store find and is perfect for holding fresh magnolia leaves.
