You probably already know, but we want to make it clear again that for us there is no more Christmassy flower than the amaryllis. That’s why our Christmas collection is also full of amaryllis. Now such an amaryllis arrangement on the table or on the dresser is a real eye-catcher, but have you ever seen a hanging amaryllis?

Amaryllises have an incredibly cool property:

The stem of the amaryllis is broad, long and, most importantly, hollow. If you hold an amaryllis upside down and then pour water into its stem, it can survive for weeks. All you have to do is add water regularly.

Pretty cool right?

We use exactly this property for the hanging amaryllis decoration.

You need:

  • Amaryllis
  • Eucalyptus or pine
  • duct tape
  • knife
  • wire
  • toothpick

That’s how it works:

First you shorten the amaryllis stem by a few centimeters. Use a clean knife for this. As you probably know from our amaryllis care tips, the stems break easily, so you should always wrap some tape around the end of the stem.

Now you take a toothpick and stick it through the end of the handle at the point of the tape. The wire for hanging is attached to this toothpick. To do this, you take a piece of wire approx. 10 cm long and wrap it around the toothpick ends so that a loop is created.

In theory, you could hang your amaryllis like this. But we think it’s especially nice when something green is added. To do this, you simply take one or two branches of pine or eucalyptus and attach them to the stem with the help of a wire.

So that your amaryllis can now rise nicely, you simply fill the open end of the stem with water. It is important that you top up with some water every few days.

The hanging amaryllis is a wonderful window decoration. But you can also let it hang from the ceiling. These hanging amaryllis are particularly eye-catching above the dining table.
