Little Spring Gifts

Little pots of spring plants make the sweetest gifts! Especially since Easter is just around the corner.
They are pretty just the way they are, but with very little extra fuss they can be dressed up to make a beautiful presentation.

Wrapping up a pot doesn’t really take a tutorial, but I thought out the steps for you to make it even easier to give spring flowers as an extra special gift.
Cut clear cellophane from a roll into 4 rectangles that will fit up the sides of the pot plus 2 1/2 inches.
Position 2 sheets of cellophane on top of each other in a + . Repeat with the other sheets of cellophane. This will make ruffly edges.
Gather up cellophane around the pot and secure with a thick rubber band.
Cut a length of ribbon. I try to use wired ribbon. Cut the ends into dovetails.
Tie in a bow and fluff.
Add moss to cover the dirt. This gives your pot a finished look.
Maybe tuck a little decorative plate under the plant… very special! I got 5 of these at a flea market for $3.00 a piece.

So easy…so sweet… so thoughtful!
But you KNEW all that already!!! Just a little reminder.
Happy Spring!

    A great idea, Yvonne! I’ve been thinking of doing something with plants for my daughter as she seems to be into planting things this year. She’s in an apartment so that means lots of containers! They make for a great place setting piece, too.

    Hi Yvonne, I love daffodils they give me happiness with their brilliant colors.
    When I think about spring, yellow and orange daffodils start to dance on my head.
    Thanks for your great idea.
    Love from Spain.

    What a great idea! I would have never thought to do that. This gets my creative juices flowing, Yvonne! I have a friend that’s about to move into a new house, so something like this would be PERFECT for a housewarming gift. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    Such an easy gift but the extra touches make it super special. I love the moss and the ribbon and the pretty plate underneath! Thanks for the idea!

    I can see I need to add to my “resource center” & get some rolls of clear cellophane as well as some moss to have on hand for just such a thoughtful gift.

    You always go the extra mile to make things look so special. Its a wonderful trail & I want to mimic everything you do!
