Nothing makes us happier than the sun coming out, the weather getting warmer, and flowers taking over our home! However, with all those flowers, it can get a bit exhausting taking care of all of them. Here are some great flower hacks that we’ve found work really well at brightening up our home and cutting down our workload.
Dessert bowl vase
Dessert bowls make chic pots for a succulent! Simply fill to the brim with potting soil, which you can find at Home Depot, spritz the soil with tap water to moisten it, and then nestle the succulent into the top layer of the soil. Over time, it will begin to grow roots. Just be sure to spray them once a week with the spray bottle until the top of the soil looks wet.
Teacup and Teapot
Don’t trash flowers with shorter stems. Instead, display them in a teacup. Keep the stems together using a clear hair tie, so they don’t separate in the teacup, which also makes it easier to change the water. Lots of people don’t buy short-stemmed flowers because they don’t have vases for them. However, that’s a silly reason not to branch out (see what I did there?). Get creative and use a teapot to hold flowers with shorter stems.
Vase within a vase
If you really want to put short-stemmed flowers in a big vase, you still can. Simply fill the tall vase with beads, stones, or something else, and then put a small can inside the container. Put the flowers in the interior container and it will look like it’s in a fancy container!
Cut the old bulb
These are super simple, chic and elegant. You cut off the end of an old light bulb, empty out all of the contents and TADA! You have a fun, functional and slightly offbeat vase for one or two stems! Cute!
Cover old beer, wine or soda bottles with yarn to make a unique vase. You can use all the same colour yarn or twine, or switch it up and make a pattern. Just get out your glue and get creative.
