All you need are 20 stems of Daffodils (available for about $4. at your local grocery or florist), a small container, and some ribbon or twine.

Cut your Daffodils to the height you prefer for your container,

wrap the ribbon or twine around the stems about 3 or 4 times (starting the wrap where the top of your container will be),

tie a square knot (right over left...left over right), 

place them in your container that you've partially filled with water.

Voila! They'll be blooming in a couple of days

and you'll be smiling for a couple of weeks!
