A few weeks back a friend mentioned she was going to add Amaryllis bulbs in preparation for Christmas. I decided to do the same but I needed something festive for the bulbs.
This led me to building a themed box that could be used as a base for Amaryllis bulbs.
Then I wondered how this plant got its name which took me to Google. It’s interesting how one idea can inspire another.
When I uncovered the story I reflected further to a time when I introduced Greek Mythology to our kids; I should have really remembered this story. They were both fascinated with different views throughout history.
Patty’s Plants had a great explanation. Link >> The Legend of Amaryllis Hippeastrum
After a few hours passed in the workshop I came up with a couple fun box ideas. You can use these boxes for more than just Amaryllis bulbs, they would make perfect gift boxes.
