What does spring smell like? It’s fresh and filled with floral touches. It is light, airy and contains the promise of warmer days. Interested in having spring’s sweet aroma permeate your apartment? Then try one of these three ideas.
An herbal wreath is relatively easy to make and will add a beautiful fragrance to your home. Simply cut fresh herbs, such as rosemary or thyme, leaving the stems at least eight inches long. Next, use 24-gauge floral wire to bind small bunches of the herbs together. Finally, attach the bunches to a six-inch wreath frame in an attractive fashion.
Of course, one of the best ways to add a fresh spring scent to your apartment is with fragrant flowers. You can go the easy route and just place vases of fresh cut flowers around your home. Or, if you want to be more creative, consider making a fresh flower garland. For this, you will need cut flowers and greenery, such as ivy. Using heavy-gauge floral wire, bind together small bunches of the greenery and flowers. Next, overlap the bundles and tie them together so that they’ll form a long garland. You can drape your garland on your stair railings or even use it as a pretty, scented table runner.
Lavender is a lovely scent that is also said to have a calming effect on people. To add a touch of this magical fragrance to your home, fill a small jar with equal parts of dried lavender buds and baking soda. Next, slowly add approximately 20 to 25 drops of lavender essential oil, shaking the jar after every 3 or 4 drops to mix in the scent. Leave this jar open anywhere you would like the soothing scent of lavender.
