Wildcrafting Info: Using Plants For Decorating


Since the beginning of time, nature and gardens have been the source of our crafting traditions. Wild harvesting plant materials from their native environment, also known as wildcrafting, is still a very popular hobby of nature lovers and gardeners. Wildcrafting ideas abound when using plants for decorating.

Wildcrafting Info

Long ago people did not have the same luxuries as we do today. They could not go out shopping for various household items or gifts for decorating. Instead, their gifts and decorations came from what was readily available in and around their homesteads.

Some of these materials were gathered from the wild, while other items were taken from their gardens. Wooded areas and open prairies are filled with plants you can use for wildcrafting. However, there are some things you need to know beforehand if you’re new to this kind of decorating with plants.

First of all, you should become familiar with the numerous types of plants in your region and your garden. If you aren’t skilled at plant identification, you could fall victim to toxic plants such as poison ivy, as well as laws governing rare or endangered plants. Any time you’re wild harvesting plants materials, take only what is needed for your wildcrafting project and no more. This way you will help ensure that enough plants or seeds remain behind to sustain its survival.

Also, pay close attention to where you harvest plants. No matter how abandoned an area may appear, it is no doubt owned by someone; therefore, you should always obtain permission from the landowner before searching out and using plants for decorating.

Wildcrafting Ideas

There are numerous ways that plants can be used for decorations. For instance, decorative wreaths, garlands and swags can easily be created from fresh evergreen cuttings. For a more permanent approach, dried woody branches such as maple, birch, wild rose, dogwood and willow work well.

These should be gathered in the fall while the sap is still flowing, as they will be flexible enough to twist into the desired shape. Once shaped and allowed to completely dry, they’ll remain that way indefinitely. Vine runners can also be harvested and used for this purpose as well.

Numerous flowers and herbs can be used for wildcrafting. These often provide additional beauty, fragrance and color. Don’t overlook the beauty found in seedheads or berries; these can give your projects extra charm.

Herbs and a variety of flowers can be cut and bundled to dry by hanging upside down. This uses gravity to keep stems and flower heads straight as they dry and harden off. The best place to hang herbs and flowers is in an area that stays cool and dark with plenty of air circulation. I have used an old packhouse for storing my dried herbs and flowers, but a basement will work too provided it receives adequate circulation and doesn’t retain a lot of moisture.

Your garden is a never-ending source of decorating materials, as is the wooded area of your landscape. Take what our ancestors have taught us by wildcrafting — creating gifts or decorating with plants from your garden and the wild. When wild harvesting plant materials is done in a respectful and mindful way, wildcrafting can be a fun, inexpensive alternative to today’s more costly home decorating.


6 Great Ways To Decorate With Plants

The Spruce / Krystal Slagle

For the most part, interior design is just what it says it is - a way of crafting and curating the inside of the structures that we live and work in so that they are comfortable and pleasing to us visually as well as physically. It's interesting, and maybe a little ironic to note how much of that process depends on the amount of the outdoors that we are able to bring in with us. Wood furniture, stone finishes and even animal hides on rugs and pillows are all little nods to the great outdoors that we love to surround ourselves with when we're inside. But for all of the different ways that we find to sneak nature into our man-made dwellings, probably the most important and most beneficial are with plants. When it comes to good design - whether at home or in the office - you can never underestimate the importance of having plants as part of your daily living space. In fact, when I am working with clients, it is never an issue of deciding whether the space should include plants, but rather which plants are right for the space that I'm decorating and the people who live in it.

There are any number of reasons to include a healthy dose of plant life in any and every room of your home - including your actual health. Beyond their aesthetic value, having plants in your home reduces toxins in the air, and improves air quality to say nothing of the many and varied aromatherapy benefits that particular plants can have. These benefits range from lowering blood pressure to energizing the mind and even encouraging deeper and more healthful sleep.   Numerous scientific studies have proven that plants are especially beneficial for those who are ill, assisting in the lowering of stress levels among long-term patients.   The consensus is clear: bringing green plant life into your home literally adds life into the space. Now whether your thumb is green, blue or any other shade in the rainbow, here's 6 great tips for ways to enhance your space through an old-fashioned approach to green living.


To prepare leafy stems for use in cooking, strip the leaves off the stems by sliding your thumb and forefinger from top to bottom. Snip off thicker leaves, such as those of parsley, bay, or tansy, which don't strip off readily. If you plan to remove the herbs before serving the food, skip stripping and use whole stems. Tie them together for easier removal from whatever you are cooking.

The traditional way to preserve herbs entails gathering small bunches of 10 to 15 stems and hanging them in a warm, airy place to dry. Wrap stems tightly with a rubber band or tie them with twine. Hang the bunches on a drying rack, on the rung of a hanger, or from a nail. Drying can take up to three weeks, depending on the plant and its moisture content. Strip crisp-dry leaves off stems before storing them. Dry seed heads by placing a paper bag over them and tying it shut around the stems. Place only one type of herb in each bag and label it. The seeds will drop into the bag as they dry. Let seeds dry for several weeks before storing them properly.


Only Buy High-Quality Faux Plants

Plants Accentuate Window Sill

Usually, when you think windows, you don't think decoration, but this window has become the focal point of this space. The two slender mirrors add plenty of natural light to the space, which is reflected off of the small, starburst mirror in the center. A green plant sits in front or each windows to add a touch of nature, while fresh pink flowers in a turquoise vase give the window a little splash of color.

Planetary Correspondences of Sun
and its Fire Aspect

Probably the most popular of the planetary influences for the general population, Sun rules over prosperity and general protection. Choose Sun plants when you are looking for centering, doing money magic, or honoring aspects of the divine that are sun-associated. Sun plants often have sun-shaped flowers (daisies, for instance) or when ingested give a feeling of calm warmth (unlike the heating of Mars, which can lead to violent action).

Please feel free to reproduce this table in any manner you see fit

Taken from Green Magic by Ann Moura. This list pretty much includes everything needed for an all-purpose magical herb garden.

The trees you pick for your own personal list of tree totems will of course reflect those that are native to your area. Scrub oak and Redwood trees and Eucalyptus mark me very clearly as a resident of the Western part of the country. One of the things that you'll learn as you walk the magical path is that you need to find your own way and it needs to reflect who and what YOU are.

The Redwood tree is my point of entry into the other world on my shamanic journeys.
