I know you're all just sick of snow, so we whipped up a little glimpse of spring that was simple, fun, and made with things we already had or things that were growing in the yard...
...like this lacy fern I can't seem to kill off.
I cut some long blades of ornamental grass as well, then gathered a clear glass vase, white river rocks, some raffia, and a medium sized shell.
First, loop the grass and cross the ends.
Tie this off with the red raffia that was missing around Christmas when you needed it.
Trim the ends of the grasses and the raffia.
Place your rocks in the vase.
Place the shell on the rocks...um, you guys see what I did, right?
I like it.
