Hopefully by now you’ve done some spring cleaning and have a naturally great smelling house. And while everything outside is blooming like crazy, how about freshening up the inside of your home, too? One of the most inexpensive ways you can do this is with moss. You may be able to find moss is in your own backyard. But if you a) don’t know what you’re looking for, b) live in an apartment, and c) aren’t Martha f*cking Stewart, you’re in luck – you can purchase it by the bag from your local craft store on the cheap.
Adding little touches of greenery to your home is the most effective way to give it warmth and make it feel “finished.” Moss is a great way to add to this feel. The best part about moss is that it’s natural, so there’s no right or wrong way to place it: tuck a little over here, add some over there…it doesn’t have to be perfect. You may recognize those succulents in the pot from a previous project – they are my new favorite plant, and again, inexpensive! As for the moss, you don’t just have to keep it to potted plants.You can see here, I’ve even added some to an otherwise plain glass candle holder:
This stuff is like Spring in a bag.
As for these low-maintenance plants, pretty much any garden supply store has many different varieties of succulents to choose from. They are great looking and super easy – you barely even need to water these guys. Pick up a small bag of cactus soil , put your succulents in the pot, add the moss, and you’re done! Instant Spring in your home.
