There is still plenty of time to make or arrange some easy garden gifts for the holidays. Get creative with supplies by finding containers at resale and antique shops, it will add a nostalgic touch without breaking the bank. Water wise plants make it easy on the ‘gift receiver’ who may not be a green thumb, water only once a week and place in a sun for 4-6 hours per day.
Vintage Coffee Can Containers for succulents can be found on ebay at very reasonable prices.
Herb infused vinegar and oils.... Many recipes online. I made this one with Rosemary and Thyme in vinegar and olive oil. Make and Store in the refrigerator one week before gift giving.
Spray paint or hand paint wooden stakes, large rocks, bottles, cans, or pots for garden plant markers. Get creative!
Make magnets with glass rounds, glue, and garden photos from magazines or cards. Glue a magnet on the back when dry. I found these glass circles at 'Michael's' Craft store.
Garden Flower Magnet: I used printed card stock paper with a clear silicon glue from Home Depot.
*google image* painted rock garden markers. Too Cute!
For the kids in your life... how about some easy to grow seed packets with pots and small garden tools?
Tie up an assortment of seed packets and throw in a pair of gardening gloves and hand cream.
A whole basket of potted succulents and bamboo in small square containers with gift tags ready to give away.
Have you ever wanted to make a mosaic garden pot? I found a great “how to” video online that in just 2 minutes will show you all you need to create a piece of art. This would be a great project with kids. LINK: HOW TO MAKE A MOSAIC POT!
