Crochet Décor: Take Your Houseplant for a Walk Day

Walking is great exercise, but it’s definitely not my favorite method of getting my heart pumping unless I’m walking with someone. But what if your walking buddy isn’t available? Well, now you have the perfect solution: Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day.

According to www.daysoftheyear.com, on this day, “proud plant-owners can show off their leafy friends to the neighbourhood when Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day rolls around. The idea behind this day is to celebrate plants, and to acquaint plants with their immediate environment, which is supposed to be healthy for them. Plant-owners can admire each others’ plants, and exchange stories and tips on plant-care.”

If this sounds like the holiday for you, what better way to celebrate than by crocheting a cozy or holder for your favorite plant? It gives your plant a chance to dress up, and then you’ll be able to walk in style while carrying your favorite leafy companion! For some great options that I’m sure your plants will love, check out the below!
