DIY Christmas Gift: A Potted Plant
Potted plant gifts are a refreshing change of pace from ‘the usual’ Christmas presents. They’re readily available in all different types at your local market (pro tip: you can also use potted herbs like mint and thyme, or small faux plants). They add a welcome touch of green during wintertime. Plus, they can be dressed up with a pretty printed kitchen towel and ribbon to create a completely adorable holiday gift presentation.
What you’ll need to make the gift:
Step 1: Wrap plant in a small plastic bag and cut off any excess. This will prevent leaking when watering the plant.
Step 2: Bring one corner to the center of the towel and fold. Next, place the plant in the middle and cover the plant pot.
Step 3: Take the right hand corner of the towel and wrap over the the center of the plant pot and pin.
Step 4: Repeat for the left side and pin.
Step 5: Personalize it with ribbon and gift tags.
Voila! A perfectly presented DIY Christmas gift everyone will adore.
