Here’s a fun, early spring project to brighten up your home. This is simple enough for kids to do with very little adult assistance. Tending this tiny garden takes just seconds each day, and is so satisfying because you see results very quickly! Using the tutorial in this post, grow a fresh crop of grass for your spring decor.
Create a tablescape, centerpiece or fairy garden. How about making a May Day basket to hang on a friend’s door? A gnome playing hide and seek in the grass would be a fun surprise for little ones!
Once you’ve grown the grass, it’s time to pull out your spring decor, or shop the house for seasonal items. I’ve collected a ceramic rabbit, four different types of eggs, some plastic chicks, faux flowers and a faux bird nest.
Get creative and decorate with other containers you have on hand. I’ve used a basket, a trifle dish and a wooden crate. A vintage Pyrex bowl, silver ice bucket or a metal tin are all charming options. The possibilities are endless!
With just a slight change in accessories, here are three different looks for the same rustic, wooden basket.
A wooden crate makes a cozy home for a couple of crazy chicks.
A clear, glass trifle bowl puts all the layers on display.
If you try this project, I’d love to see your results! Happy Spring!
