DIY: A Sight of Spring to De-Winterize Your Home

By guest blogger designer Mark Kintzel

Right about now, I start seeing spring flowers sold around town. Colorful spring flowers are a great fresh way to snap out of any winter funk. So I picked up a few and combined them with some of my favorite vintage pottery for a bright and lively addition to my home. I’m sure this quick creation will do the same for yours!

Here’s what you need:

Spring flowers (such as tulips, hyacinths, miniature iris, daffodils, or primrose)

Vintage pottery (planters, containers, or cookware will all work)

Potting soil

Sheet moss

Watch the video for simple step-by-step instructions:

Keep your plants cool, in shade, and moist, and they’ll last the longest. When you no longer have frost warnings in your area, take the bulbs outside, and plant them in your garden to enjoy for many months more!

    Thanks for the refresher course! I haven’t done this for the last two years. I was just thinking of buying some spring bulbs a couple of days ago. I ususally get them in February because I know that spring is just around the corner and I want to pretend that I am growing plants outdoors already, so this was very timely. It sure does make the house look and smell lovely inside on a cold, cloudy day like today.

    I have plenty of pots to use, so, watch out grocery stores and nurseries!
