Winter Into Spring Decor

winter spring home decor use what you have glass globes
 wondering how to decorate for the change from winter into spring?
try combining the hues and textures of winter with a touch of spring flowers, 
like the clear & white glass, burlap, and cherry blossom combination above.

this is a really simple way to take an everyday item and make it work as decor...
yes, those round things in the photo up above ARE what you think they are:
glass light globes
from old porch lights and overhead hall lights!

continue reading to see what i've done with them for spring!

these are available at vintage lighting stores, building salvage stores,
and sometimes thrift shops for just a few dollars each.
you can find new ones at hardware stores, but they usually aren't as interesting as old ones.

i've used glass globes in MANY ways over the years...

for the winter-to-spring season, they are serving as flower vases and vase fillers

single glass globes with flat bottoms serve as flower vases
simply tuck a few faux stems into the openings, 
OR place a small jar filled with water inside the globe to hold real blooms.

psssst... wanna' know my secret for flawless spring decor each year?
those tulips. and they're fake. yes really!

i bought two twig wreaths with those tulips on them, over TEN YEARS AGO, 
from Restoration Hardware. at the outlet. on clearance. i'm CHEAP!!!
i pulled the tulips out of the wreath forms, and i've been using the flowers ever since. 
they look so real that no one has a clue they're fake!
