What you need


  • Spray bottle

How to do it

Step 1 Moisten Moss and Add Water to Tray

Fill a spray bottle with water. Mist the moss, making it fairly damp and pliable. Then, pour water into tray or dish you are planning on using. Make sure there is enough water for each bulb to have an adequate drink.

Step 2 Arrange Bulbs, Moss, and Accessories

Arrange your flower bulbs of choice in the water around the tray. Use moss to hold the bulbs in place. Once finished, accessorize with your choice of holiday balls and ornaments. Set on a coffee or dining room table as a charming holiday decoration.
