Propagating Plants Inside a Christmas Ornament Bulb

Make these cute and inexpensive ornament bulb propagation planters to give as gifts or simply to decorate your desk, bathroom, or home.

*I highly recommend using plastic shatterproof ornaments.


Realistically if you have any plants at home you can cut to put into this planter (I am using pothos - they are an extremely easy plant to propagate and care for). Next you will need is hot glue/super glue you can make this project for little to no money if you have the supplies already from home.

If not this project is still reasonably priced to make:

- 25 ornaments ($11.99):
- 30 foot twine ($1.49) :

Total Time: 15 minutes



  1. Remove and toss ornament cap.
  2. Glue ornament to a wooden base (or something that could keep the ornament bulb upright).
  3. Time to decorate ornament bulb with twine. I wrapped twine around the base for a nice texture (that could be seen at the bottom) and wrapped around the bulb. Hot glue to secure everything in place.
  4. Add water and your plant cutting! Enjoy and wait for your plant to get roots.
