Plantas Decorativas Para Halloween: “Planta Devoradora de Hombres”

Uno de los artes de Halloween más fáciles que he hecho tiene que ser el "La planta devoradora de hombres" que presenté recientemente en el  "Home & Family Show," programa del canal Hallmark.

 

 

planta-devoradora-de-hombres-para-halloween-con-shirley-bovshow-diseñadora-de-jardines-edenmakers.com

 

Este arte de la planta de Halloween es gratificante porque puede hacerse con muchos materiales re-asignados que pueden encontrarse fácilmente en el patio o garaje.

Las plantas  parecen que son del culto del clásico, " La Tienda de los Horrores."

 

 

planta-devoradora-de-hombres-projecto-artistico-de-shirley-bovshow-diseñadora-de-jardines-edenmakers-blog

 

"La planta devoradora de hombres" fue diseñada por Dave Lowe, el talentoso director de arte del show y es parte de su "plan maestro de Halloween” diseñado para el frente de la casa.

Cuando Dave me explicó el proyecto, quede gratamente sorprendida y me dije, "Genial."

Los pasos son sencillos, y es algo familiar, ideal para involucrar a sus hijos en la decoración de Halloween.

 

De principio a fin, (no incluyendo la espera de  30 minutos para que la  espuma seque) el proyecto tomó menos de una hora para completarlo.

Una vez que tienes los materiales para una planta, haciendo otra docena no es gran cosa.

De hecho, yo pondría juntos un grupo de plantas monstruo en distintas alturas para el mejor efecto.

Estaba tan emocionada de presentar este arte de Halloween a la audiencia porque los resultados son muy impresionantes y la planta puede ser muestrada en una variedad de maneras.

Puede agregar los esqueletos a la planta o arañas y cráneos y  hacerla tan leve o macabro como te atrevas.

Halloween Craft: Man-Eating Monster Plant

shirley bovshow garden-designer-expert man eating monster plant-for-halloween craft home and-family show edenmakers

One of the easiest Halloween crafts I've ever made has to be the "Man Eating Monster Plant" I presented on the Home & Family show recently.

This  Halloween plant craft is rewarding because it features many repurposed materials that can be found in your yard or garage.

The whimiscal plants look like they are from the cult classic, "Little Shop of Horrors!"

 

giant-man-eating-plant-halloween-craft-display-home-and-family-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

 

The "Man Eating Monster Plant" was designed by Dave Lowe, the talented art director for the show and is part of his "master Halloween design plan" for the front yard.

When Dave explained the craft to me, I was blown away and responded, "Genius!"

The steps are simple, making the monster plants an ideal family craft to get your kids involved in decorating for Halloween.

 

 

Start to finish, (not including waiting 30 minutes for foam to dry) the project took less than an hour to make.

Once you have the materials for one plant, making another dozen is no big deal.

As a matter of fact, I would put together a group of monster plants in varying heights for the best effect.

 

 

Man-Eating-Monster-Plant-For-Halloween-Shirley-Bovshow-Home-and-Family-Show

 

I was so excited to present this Halloween craft to the audience because the results are very impressive and the plant can be styled in a variety of ways.

You can add skeletons to the display or spiders and skulls.

Make it as mild or macabre as you dare!

 

Watch the video segment of Man-Eating Monster Plants

 

Materials

Tree branch

Flower pot

Spray foam insulation

Artificial pumpkin

Spray or brush-on paint in green or any whimsical color

Silk or faux leaves

Hot glue

Pumpkin carver

Decorative touches such as moss, skeletons, spiders, bones

 

 

Instructions

1. Find a tree branch from your yard with nice branch pattern

2. Find an old flower pot

 

expanded-insulation-foam-in-garden-container-craft-branch-inserted-man-eating-monster-plants-halloween-craft-home-and-family-edenmakers

 

3. Fill the flower pot with spray foam insulation and wait till it expands and hardens before inserting your tree branch

4. Draw a large, open mouth with sharp teeth along the legnth of your pumpkin. The pumpkin stem should be the back of the head.

5. Cut the mouth with a pumpkin carving blade (remember to hold the pumpkin long ways, so the stem is in the back).

6. Attach the pumpkin head to the top of the tree branch and secure with hot glue.

Fall Containers: One Plant Wonders!

plants-fall-containers-hypericum-red-fame-crimson-fire-fringe-flower-loropetelum-ochre-pots-wilt-pruf-shirley-bovshow-garden-designer-edenmakers

It's the first week of October and today registered a HOT 98-degrees in Los Angeles.

Perfect weather for desiging fall container gardens!

Oh, I'm not complaining about the perennial sunshine, I only wish "sweater weather" would set in soon.

No matter how warm it is in my town, my focus is on presenting garden and design information for the national audience that watches the "Home & Family" show.

 

Patio-fall-containers-fall-foliage-jewel-toned-ceramic-pots-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

 

My latest gardening segment is on "Fall Containers: One Plant Wonders!"

I thought it would be practical to showcase plants that boast beautiful foliage, texture, or berries and look great as "one plant wonders" in fall containers.

The last thing I want to do is care for a mixed fall planter, stuffed with a bunch of flowers that need deadheading.

What do you think?

 

jeweled-toned-plant-combinations-for-fall-containers-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

Shopping for garden containers at Green Thumb Nurseries in Canoga Park, CA.

 

My approach to fall containers this year is simple and practical.

Pair a fall foliage plant with a colorful, contrasting jewel-toned container for maximum impact!

 

Take a look at a few of my favorite fall plants for containers featuring some First Editions® plants that I presented on the show.

I want to thank Bailey Nurseries for providing the plants and Green Thumb Nurseries for the colorful containers.

 

Daub's Frosted Juniper Tree

daubs-frosted-juniper-tree-white-snowberry-fall-container-plants-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

 

This Daub's Frosted Juniper is grafted as a small tree with bluish-green, lacy mature foliage and frosted golden-yellow new growth.

I like how the glossy white container and white Galaxy snowberry plant bring light to the evergreen tree.

Junipers are cold hardy and one of the most adaptable plants in the world!

You'll find them surviving under snow as well as braving the heat of the desert.

Find a sunny spot in your garden and enjoy the year-round beauty of this spreading, but low growing variety.

 

Harry Lauder Walking Stick Tree (Corylus avellana)

harry-lauder-walking-stick-tree-blue-cobalt-planter-fall-containers-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

 

The stark, gray, twisted branches of the Corylus avellana or "Harry Lauder Walking Stick" tree, transform the naked branches into a "living sculpture" in the fall and winter.

 I selected a textured, cobalt blue container with raised swirls to play up the contorted shape of the branches.

As the tree ages, the branches become thick and gnarled and bend into corkscrew configurations that are breathtaking and a hallmark of the plant.

When placed in a tall container, it elevates the tree to "art status."

 

Harry Lauder Walking Stick is a member of the hazelnut family and is dormant through the winter.

 

Loropetelum, First Editions® 'Crimson Fire' Fringe Flower

Besides small trees, I selected some plants that are commonly used in the landscape but interesting enough to be featured as a specimen plant.

loropetelum-crimson-fire-fringe-flower-fall-foliage-container-plant-shirley-bovshow-garden-expert-edenmakers

 

The dark ruby leaves of the Loropetelum, or 'Crimson Fire' Fringe Flower, persist throughout the year.

In the spring, the Crimson Fire boasts an eye-opening, neon pink flower.

When  I combined this plant with a glossy, ochre ceramic container, I was impressed with the vivid colors.

Although the loropetelum is hardy to nearly 0-degrees Farenheit when planted in the ground, as a container plant it can tolerate cold temparatures near 20-degrees.

Take it indoors to a sunny room and enjoy closeup when temperatures dip less than 20 degrees.

 

First Editions® 'Red Fame' Hypericum

garden-designer-shirley-bovshow-fall-container-plants-hypericum-red-fame-purple-containers-edenmakers

Don't I look like I'm enjoying the fall with my sweater?

I was boiling but I kept smiling!

 

 The fire engine red berries of the 'Red Fame' Hypericum tower over the dark green leaves, looking beautiful with autumn colors.

The purple container has a raised, knubby texture that mimics the round berries and reminds me of a cozy, cable knit sweater.

I wish!

 

First-Editions-Red-Fame-Hypericum-red-berries-fall-container-plant-garden-expert-shirley-bovshow-edenmakers

Hypericum is related to St. John's Wart and this variety grows round and compact at 2.5 feet tall  by 2.5 feet wide.

Give the Hypericum full sun and don't eat the berries!

They can be toxic to people and turn black in the winter.

 

First Editions® 'Tiger Eyes" Staghorn Sumac

first-editions-tiger-eyes-staghorn-sumac-in-orange-container-fall-plants-foliage-shirley-bovshow-garden-expert-edenmakers

The warm, orange ceramic planter sets off the golden and scarlet tones of the 'Tiger's Eyes sumac.

 

Take a look at the rosy pink stems with chartreuse green and yellow fall leaves.

If this combination doesn't scream "Autumn," I don't know what does!

Tiger's Eyes is an award winning plant and can be planted later in spring,  in the garden as shrub or small tree.

Find a space with a lot of open space as the sumac tends to grow enthusiastically and cover some ground!

 

Questions From Home & Family Show!

shirley-bovshow-landscape-garden-designer-expert-edenmakers

 

Q:  Other than color, what type of containers are best for cold weather?

Containers that won't crack from freezing and thawing.
Wood, metal, fiberglass, stone and high-fired ceramic like these

 

Q: What is the difference between a plant with a brand name such as, "First Editions" and plants without special names?

Branded plants such as First Editions® have been bred to be an improved version over their common plant counterpart.

Better disease resistance, more color choices, better size selection, more or extended bloom times.

If you like a plant but not it's behavior, look for branded plants to see if they have improved version.

 

Q:- Any special care for fall container plants?

 

Water once per week if no rain

No need to fertilize

Use an "anti-dessicant" such as Wilt-Pruf to keep leaves from drying on cold, windy days

The corn harvest  at the "Home & Family" show vegetable garden has ended after an extremely hot summer season in Los Angeles.

We enjoyed a few juicy cobs and now it's time to dig up the brown, sun-dried corn plants and repurpose them in my autumn wreath!

Take a look at how simple and affordable it is to make an autumn wreath from upcycled corn stalk parts.

Christmas Tree Watering Pole: Design by Shirley Bovshow

Shirley-Bovshows-Christmas-Tree-Watering-Stick

I enjoy designing beautiful and functional things.

My "Christmas Tree Watering Pole," or "watering stick," is one of them.

 

 

Watch my garden segment on Home & Family show on Hallmark channel featuring my watering stick.

 

Christmas trees are notorious for bad maintenance during the holidays.

Who wants to get on their knees every day to check the water level and fight with the lower branches to reach the tree stand to add water?

Not me, and I bet you don't either!

 

I debuted my design for the "Christmas Tree Watering Pole" on the Home & Family show last year when I presented on Christmas tree tips.

The design was met with a favorable response and many of my viewers wanted to know how I made them.

So, even though I will be selling my watering poles in the near future, as part of my "EdenMaker" line of garden products, I'm going to share the instructions to make them with you,

It isn't rocket science, just one of those clever ideas that you will benefit from every holiday.

 

SHIRLEY'S CHRISTMAS TREE WATERING POLE MATERIALS

duct-tape-red-paint-funnel-pvc-pipe-measure-tape-shirleys-christmas-tree-watering-stick-materials-edenmakers

 

Most of the materials needed for the watering stick are available at your garden or home improvement center and the local dollar store.

  • 4'-foot, 3/4"-inch PVC pipe ( I bought at 10'-foot pipe and had it cut at Home Depot into two, 4'-foot pieces, plus an extra 2'-foot piece)
  • 1 large, white plastic funnel- .99 cents at Dollar Store for a pack of three nested funnels. 
  • Package of "glue tape" for plumbing projects- .99 cents at Dollar Store
  • Red and gold duct tape- Michaels or Joanns 3.50 each
  • Flat, red paint to paint one end of PVC pipe to function as a "dipstick"
  • Scissors
  • Christmas bow and jingle bells for finishing touch!

 

INSTRUCTIONS 

nfographic-how-to-make-shirleys-christmas-tree-watering-stick

 

1. Measure the depth of your Christmas tree stand basin. Usually around 6 or 7"-inches.

 

2. Transfer the measurement to one end of your PVC pipe and mark around pipe and add painter's tape around perimeter.

    This will become your "dipstick" area that will tell you how much water your basin has, without bending down!

 

3. Paint this dipstick area with flat red paint. 

    When end of pipe is placed in water, the paint will darken to reveal how "full" the basin is.

 

funnel-wrapped-with-black-water-proof-tape-edenmakers

4. Take your funnel and add "glue tape" around the neck of funnel for tight fit into the other end of the PVC pipe.

 

insert-funnel-into-pvc-pipe-edenmakers

5. Insert funnel to opposite end of the PVC pipe until secure.

 

6. Cover this funnel joint with red duct tape.

Art duct-tape-edenmakers

7. Begin at the top of the pipe and rotate pole and red duct tape to create pinstripes down the face of the pipe.

 

8. Turn tape until you get to the bottom of post.

 

9. Add decorative touches such as bows, ribbons and jingling bells!

 

 

HOW TO USE WATERING STICK

Shirley-Bovshow-Home-and- family show-shirley-bovshow

Dip the painted end into the basin of your Christmas tree stand and take a look at the depth of the water as marked by the darkened paint.

Add water using the funnel and pipe until your "dipstick" reveals the red painted area is all wet to the top.

The watering pole is so pretty, you won't have to hide this watering aid.

Use it like a decoration.

 

Let me know if you end up making a Christmas Tree Watering Stick!

Creative Technique For Becoming A Productive Gardener

Raised-mediterranean-style-garden-low-water-plants-shirley-bovshow-edenmaker-blog

I invited my friend Susan Sherayko, author of "Rainbows Over Ruins" to share her creative problem-solving wisdom on EdenMakers as part of her book "blog tour!"

As the Line Producer on the "Home & Family" show, Susan has the huge task of supervising the financial bottom line of a daily, Emmy-nominated, national talk show.

When I met Susan a few years ago, I had no idea what overwhelming obstalcles she had triumphed over to land her dream job and maintain the positive disposition that is her signature style.

There was a compelling story behind her dimpled smile and confidence.

 

Susan gave me a copy of her book which offered me a glimpse into her life, and more importantly, the "thinking strategy"  and tools that form the cornerstone of her success and resilence!

 

Enjoy Susan's guest blog post, and leave a comment below to enter a drawing for a free copy of her book,  Rainbows Over Ruins!

 

 

Guest Blogger, Susan Sherayko

Looking at the beautiful spaces that Shirley highlights here on EdenMakers Blog, I lament the state of my own gardens.

 

We live at the edge of the high desert in California where water is becoming ever more precious.  

Our well is no longer producing water so we have to truck it in every two weeks or so.  

I’ve made efforts to use drought tolerant plants, but even they need some regular watering.  

 

dry-river-bed-garden-texas-ranger-leucophyllum-plant-edenmakers

 

At the moment, the Texas Ranger (Leucophyllum) is blooming at its best ever.  

The rock rose (Cistus), prostate rosemary and purple cacti are holding their own, as well as the plants that “volunteered” to live in our garden spaces.  

After 9 years in this environment, I welcome all comers.

If they can grow in our yard, they have earned the right to stay here. 

 

High-desert-garden-low-water-plants-boulders-dry-river-bed-edenmakers

 

I’m not trying to make excuses for the sorry state of the gardens.  

Instead, it occurs to me that the creative thought process I share with others might work well here too.

What if someone applied these techniques to improve their gardens?  

 

 

Visualize What You Want Your Garden To Look Like

The most important questions to answer first is “what do you want your garden to look like?

What is its primary purpose?  

How will your yard be used?

Do you have favorite plants that will thrive in your specific climate?

 

 

Visualizing what you want is fun.

Since I like to journal early in the morning, it is the perfect time to imagine the things I want.

If I were answering these questions, I would see the gardens of my childhood.

 

My parents lived on the east coast and had gardens filled with roses, iris, azaleas, rhododendrons, daffodils, ivy, a pear tree that survived a hurricane, snowball plants, a lawn, and did I say roses?

They planted roses everywhere, in small gardens around the bird bath and climbing the fences that surrounded the house on all sides.  

 

 

Compare Your Real Garden To Your Dream Garden

Now, take an inventory.

How do your existing gardens compare?

Do you see a contrast?

 

The difference between what you have and what you want to have is called a gap.  

When you think it’s huge, it’s likely to stop you from making any attempt to work on your gardens, if you let it.  

It feels easier to make a long list of all the reasons (excuses) you have for doing without your dream garden.  

However, that isn’t the way to succeed at anything, let alone gardening.  

 

The better approach is to catch yourself when you start any negative self-talk and take a different approach.

Ask yourself “Why am I able to improve my garden?” and then make a different list – a list of pro-active positive suggestions that might help.  

 

Make A List of Positive Suggestions

You don’t need to know all the answers right now, however, if you keep asking that question, ideas are bound to come to you.

Then, you can choose one action out of all the potential ideas to start creating a better space.

They don’t have to be massive projects.  

 

List-beautiful-low-water-plants-edenmakers

 

In the beginning, it may be all you can do to visit Shirley's blog to get ideas.

Maybe you’ll write a comment and ask for suggestions.

That’s how the creative thought process works.  

 

Keep asking positive questions that point you in the desired direction and you’ll be surprised how many resources show up in response. 

Funny, that sounds like a suggestion I can take myself.  

 

Do You Have A Garden Suggestion For Me?

Since the low water situation is having such an effect on my gardens, perhaps you would be willing to share what you do in your gardens when you have a water shortage.  

What plants do you recommend to bring color to my high desert, water-thirsty garden?

We experience extreme temperatures: very hot dry summers and cold winter nights.

 

I would love to see the suggestions you have for me.  

Thank you in advance for the help.

 
To Your Success in the gardens, 
Susan
