This is the time of year we are longing for the pussy willows and the forsythia to start to bud. Today I will show you how to bring a bit of spring indoors to brighten up your home. It is easy to pretend you have dug up a spade of your garden and brought it indoors!

Select a terracotta saucer in whatever size you would like your mini-indoor garden to be. Turn it over and put protective feet on the bottom so it won't scratch any surface you put it on.

Turn you saucer over and fill the base with dry floral foam or styrofoam. Secure it with floral tape.

Take a piece of moss mat and cut it the approximate size of the saucer. This mat material can come with paper on the back to make it adhesive, peel that paper off of your moss mat.

Situate the moss mat over your styrofoam and begin to secure it to the foam base.

Use greening pins to secure the moss to the foam base.

Get a selection of faux flowering branches. Think, cherry blossoms, pussy willow and forsythia. Anything that is an early spring bloomer.

Start sticking your branches through the moss and secure it into the foam.

Once you have your blooming branches added, you will want to begin adding some other early spring blooms. Keep each kind of blossom in its own little spot, as each the bulbs for those flowers are right beneath the blooms. I added a cluster of daffodils first.

Consider a cluster of small iris for a pop of purple!

Take a small bird nest, bend a wire in half and push it down through the nest and then into the foam to secure it in your arrangement.

Add a little bird to your nest!

You now have a little bit of spring to enjoy right indoors until it all begins blooming outside of your door!
