Today’s post is my second 12 Months of Martha project.  It’s a perfect mixture of upcycling old things while incorporating new things, like Daffodil flowers.  I am sharing how you can take unused spice containers and turn them into lovely Magnetic DIY Daffodil Planters.

How do I make a Mini DAFFODIL PLANTER?

The first step was painting the spice containers soon to be planters.  I used a flat white spray paint with primer.  It took a few coats to fully cover that bright red McCormick’s spice container.

After the paint was dry, I placed two strips of washi tape along the bottom and painted my thin yellow line.

Next, I cut a thin strip of yellow scrapbook paper using Martha’s paper trimmer.  I have never had a trimmer with such precision and I really loved it.

After my paper was cut, I applied a thin coat of Matte finish decoupage to my spice container and a thin coat to my paper.  Then, I wrapped my paper around the container and gave it a few more coats to secure.

I also hot glued a few strong magnets to the back of each container.

While my container was drying, I prepared my daffodils!  I found some mini daffodils at my local Whole Foods and they were the perfect height for this project.  I separated the bulbs outside and shook most of the excess soil off.


After I nestled a few bulbs into each container, I add additional soil and my daffodils were as happy as could be!  If you are wanting to keep your daffodil plants in these spice containers for a longer amount of time, be sure to drill small holes in the bottom of your container to allow for water drainage.

When is the best time to plant Daffodil bulbs?

If you are not simply just buying grown daffodils, but looking to grow them from a bulb in the ground, you will want to plant your bulbs from October to December, the previous year.  You should get the bulbs in the ground before the first frost.

I love this cheerful pop of spring.  And it’s so versatile that it can sit on your countertop or table or it can hang on the fridge!

And this would be such a fun project you could also make with simple paper daffodils!  Then you could have year round Spring in your home.
