One of this year’s Christmas decorations trends is to bring the nature inside our homes. This Japanese kokedama inspired Christmas decoration is one way of doing it. To create a real kokedama (koke=moss and dama=ball) you tie the moss with a string around a plants root system, so that the moss works as a vase for the plant’s. The kokedamas are perfect as table decoration as you can contribute the style you want by the choice of plant.

I wanted, however, my kokadamas to be just a round ball (without a plant) and to hang in the window.

Kokedama inspired Christmas decoration


You will need:

• Paper Rolls
• Tape
• Moss
• Lace
• A pair of scissors


Spray your kokedama with water to keep it nice and green.

How to:

  1. Cut the empty paper rolls into two and then tape them together vertically. This is to be used instead of a plants root system.
  2. Cover the rolls with moss and with help of the lace, create a round shape.
  3. Leave a long part of the lace to tie your kokedama around your curtain rod.
  4. If you prefer to make a real kokedama, you only remove some soil around the root system of your plant before you cover it with moss. Remember that they should be watered.
