Bring a touch of spring into your home with this simple but eye catching display.

It is very easy to achieve with just a bunch of tulips and a glass globe vase.

We used pussy willow stems, but any small lengths of willow or flexible twigs from the garden would work equally well.

If there’s nothing suitable in your garden, take some small secateurs with you on a spring walk at the weekend and see what you can come up with.

How to do it: Put a couple of inches of water into your globe vase.

Curl the twigs or pussy willow inside the vase ensuring the end of the stems reach the water.

Cut the tulips (they will grow in length in the vase), making sure again that they reach the water.

Display and enjoy! Add a little fresh water each day.
