Two Step Mini Indoor Garden

I'm not usually one to decorate for the seasons, but when I saw this idea of a mini indoor garden on The Inspired Room, I knew I had to give it a try in my own way. It is a quick and easy way to add a touch of spring to your home and you don't even need to be crafty. I used some fresh herbs, a few flowers and a greenery plant, but the possibilities are endless of what type of plants you could use.

Step 1: Find a container with a stand that you can use for your indoor garden. This can be as simple as finding something already put together like I did, or you could make a box and attach it to the top of an old end table that you find in a thrift store. Mine is made from a beverage holder bucket I found at Target for $14.99 and the matching stand for $12.99.

Step 2: Fill with potting soil and plants of your choosing. You want to choose plants and flowers that will stay small, grow low and are easy to cut back. I chose to use lavender and thyme so that I could actually use them when I cut them back.

It's that simple. Two easy steps to a beautiful indoor garden that adds the perfect Spring and Summer decor to your home.
