As some plants are entering some of their final blooms, and the late Summer sun is damaging others', it's the perfect time to take advantage of what's in your garden/yard/park/etc. Here, we've got two different morning glory vines that explode and take over two connected corners. They always die off fairly early into Autumn, so I wanted to find a way to incorporate some of the tangled vines into my indoor life.
I've been obsessed with the Jacquemus Le Grand Chapeau Santon hat (who hasn't been), which is pretty much unrelated to this post, aside from being the starting point of rambling thought process that ended with pulling my own, not near as chic sunhat, and wrapping the morning glory vines around it as if they were a scarf. Personally, I think it was one of my better ideas.
Literally all I did was rip a few vines away from the bunch, check for any lingering bugs, and I wrapped the vines around the hat, twisting them under each other to make sure they would stay in place. This specific plant is really malleable, so it was easy to wrap.
Later that day, when I no longer had a need for or desire to wear the hat, I took the vines off, and they stayed in a neat wreath formation. I left them to dry a bit, and stuck them on the corner of a painting over my bed. Two birds, one stone. Seriously, if you have a hat and a vine of some sort, I recommend trying this out. It's fun and indulgent, and why not?
