Austin Trail of Lights

In case you were not aware the Trail of Lights at Zilker Park has been canceled this year due to budget cuts.  The city had two options, have the trail of lights and charge a fee for admittance or not have a the trail at all.  The city chose the latter and decided to call off the trail all together.  As a child I can remember driving through the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park with my family.  I can remember the coldest time I went through the Trail of Lights with my husband and his family, drinking hot chocolate to keep warm.  I have had some of my best memories going to the Trail of Lights.  If you are from Austin like me you may have similar memories.  This is the first year that we are not able to see the Trail of Lights and continue the tradition.  I know times are tough and we need to make cuts and scale back but I believe we can keep this tradition alive with the help of the community.

How you can make a difference!

My brokerage, Sky Realty, has created a website specifically to keep this fantastic tradition going for all to enjoy.  If you are interested in helping or just spreading the word you can find more information on website or like it on Facebook.  Through personal, company and community donations we should be able to help the city relight the trail for the following year.  It is too late to save this year’s trail but starting now we can certainly make it happen in 2011.

Making a Living Wreath

How to make a living wreath!  I find myself lately not having time for creative activities, something I love to do, but I am making the time and this is my first Do-It-Yourself blog.  I saw this wreath in Real Simple magazine and decided I would recreate it as gifts for the holidays.  The great thing is you can use it all year round since it’s made with succulents.

Items you will need…

floral wire                 Spanish moss

wire wreath              succulents

The first thing you need is a wreath structure.  I found the metal frame wreath structure at Hobby Lobby, you’ll also need floral wire and Spanish moss for filler.  All the materials can be found at Hobby Lobby.  This project is a bit messy so if you are constructing the wreath inside you will want something down that you can just pick up and shake out.  First I pulled apart the moss and placed in the grooves of the wreath frame, you may need to push it in the frame to fit.  I didn’t use a lot of moss just enough to keep it even with the lip of the frame.  Then, I wrapped the frame with the floral wire by securing a piece of the wire to the frame and wrapping it around with about an inch in between each wire wrap.

Now the frame is ready for the plants.  You can find succulents at most garden nurseries, some of my favs are The Natural Gardener and The Great Outdoors.  You can use any succulents you like.  Succulents root very easily so you can actually break a piece off and stick it into the moss in the frame, you may need to secure the piece with more wire, just make sure they are secure and won’t fall out when you pick it up.  You can design your wreath however you like.  Important note and one to pass on to the recipient, make sure to either soak the wreath in water for about 10 minutes once to twice a week, you can also use a water bottle sprayer to wet the wreath.  When you are creating the wreath it might be good to wet it everyday until you give it as a gift, the moss will absorb the water also creating a moist environment for the succulents to root.

Yay, your hard work has paid off and now you have beautiful gift or something to bring beauty to your own home.  Enjoy!
