There are a million crafty ways to dress up a plant in a pot, but if you’re like me, you appreciate something that is easy, frugal, and cute all at once. Here I’ll show you how to dress up a small plant in a pot suitable for gift giving.
Start with a plant of your choice. My favorites are these gerbera daisies, for their great color and large blooms. They are also fairly easy to care for, indoors or out. The pot isn’t anything special, just a standard plastic pot.
Gather a few supplies, including inexpensive organza, rubber bands, markers and attractive store bought gift tags on nice heavy stock paper. These came from Target. You can also print your own, if you have a signature design.
Wrap a length of organza around the bottom of the pot, and secure with a rubber band. This used a length of ribbon that was roughly the length of my leg. Bunch at least one layer of the ribbon up or down, in order to cover the rubber band.
Flip the gift card over to include your personal message. Then hang the tag with a rubber band loop around the plant’s care tag.
This little beauty only costs about a dollar, plus the cost of the plant (this one was $5), and is an inexpensive but well-dressed hostess or party gift. If you’re hosting a summer party, these are great grouped together as table centerpieces.
