I’m hoping that if I continue making spring crafts, spring will actually arrive! Here, its currently snowing outside, but inside I’m having one hell of a spring garden party. I made these adorable flower pot placeholders using supplies I picked up at Dollar Tree.
They’re perfect if you are hosting a spring gathering. Your guests can take them home and later plant the attached seeds!
Ok, heres what I picked up at Dollar Tree in order to make 3 placeholders.
3 seed packets
1 bag of moss
2 packages of pop-up flower stickers
1 package of plant labels
1 styrofoam cube
1 three pack of clay pots
1 package of 6ft floral wire
That’s $10 + tax!
I also used a serrated knife, a hot glue gun, a paint pen and wire cutters for this project.
First, I cut the styrofoam cube into small pieces that would fit into each pot.
Then, I created three flowers for each pot by cutting pieces of floral wire at varying links and hot glueing a flower sticker at the top of each one. I twisted the floral wire to add interest.
Next, I hot glued the seed packets to smaller pieces of floral wire.
Then, I just stuck the components into the pots.
Using a paint pen, I wrote the names of my guests onto the plant labels and stuck them into the pots.
Finally, fill in with moss.
Who wants to come over for dinner?
