How to make the intentions tree
It doesn’t really matter what plant you use, and if you don't have space for a tree, a medium-sized plant on a side table will work just as well. Choose a plant that is meaningful, to remind you of its importance, or a good-looking variety which means you'll keep stopping to admire it. Write your resolutions on attractive paper, and sketch some images that bring the idea to life, or add motivational quotes to accompany them. Then simply secure the notes to the plant with ribbons.
Have you thought about making green resolutions for this year? For example, think of bringing more greenery into your home in a more conscious way. This is very much in line with the current style trend. How about making a green plant curtain, or creating a plant pattern on your wall? Or could your plant care use an upgrade? If so, check out our Green Paper for a fresh take on how to take the best care of your plants.
A plant for everyone
Share the intentions tree around: invite your family to hang their own resolutions onto the branches. Or give your friends or neighbours a plant and a stack of blank cards as a present for the new year and an invitation for them to create their own. With a plant like this, that's got our backs, we bet that everyone will still be sticking to their resolutions halfway through 2022. Good luck!
