Hang bird's nest flower basket for spring

Homeowners who buy flowers online to celebrate the Spring may want to find a unique and eye-catching way to show off their beautiful buds. While a traditional vase can be an elegant solution for a dinner party, what about when one wants to create warm, rustic atmosphere?

Northumberland Today reports that it might be best to take some inspiration from the birds. Create a nest for flowers that incorporates natural materials such as tufts of grass, moss, leaves and vines so that it can hang from the rafters of a home or outside by the front door.

The process is fairly straightforward and sure to be rewarding for those looking to display fresh flowers to visitors. The first step is to create two wreaths that are around 30 to 36 centimeters. Cross the vines together and weave the plants as close together as possible. After that, pack down some soil, stick in the buds and let them shine.

The news source reports that this kind of container can last for up to three years if it's kept in the right conditions, although it seems that it may be best to keep it out of summer rainstorms.
