Today is the first Saturday of May which means it’s Cozy Living Saturday! I’m joining my friends to share ways we add a little coziness in our lives. For me, May is the month to celebrate all the wonderful spring flowers.

To make your cabbage flower vase, hollow out the inside with a knife and sturdy spoon – similar to gutting a pumpkin at Halloween. You might need to slice a small piece off the bottom of the cabbage to keep it from rolling around.

Once you have a large enough hole in the cabbage for a vase, cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside. Wet the foam before placing it inside the cabbage. Set your cabbage on a plate or similar to catch any water that might leak out. I put a couple of cabbage leaves on the plate first – for aesthetic appeal.

Now comes the fun part of adding spring flowers. Cut them from your garden or purchase them from the store. Cut the stems right before you insert the flowers into the foam. This ensures they have a fresh cut which makes it easier for them to pull in the water.

Keep inserting flowers into the wet foam, working in a circular fashion.

I used hyacinths, tulips, roses, and pussy willow branches. I left some of the leaves on the tulips for greenery.

Add a little water inside the hole as needed. The cabbage will leak a little which is why you want to make sure you have a plate or something similar underneath the cabbage.
