One of the greatest parts of the holidays is how whimsical everything is, don’t you think? Things you might not normally think of doing, somehow make their way to the front of your mind. Such is the case of this cute planter ornament idea that I’m sharing here with you all today.
- Small Tote Bag-This one is from Target’s Dollar Spot or we like THIS one.
- Wooden Ornament – this is one of my favorites and this one.
- Metallic Spray Paint
- White Outdoor Craft Paint
- Foam Brush
- Sanding Block/Sandpaper (Optional)
Holiday Hostess Gift Idea:
Start by spraying the wooden ornament with the metallic spray paint.
Let it dry.
Take a sponge brush and apply your white outdoor craft paint as thinly as possible, giving it a weathered look.
Let it dry.
This next step is optional-Take your sandpaper or sanding block and sand off a bit of the paint to make it look even more weathered. I did this in just a couple of places and love the look, but either way is pretty.
The last step is to tie the ornament to the bag using your string/twine.
Place your desired plant inside the bag and enjoy!
You see, it’s cute, and not really expected so when your guest are admiring your beautiful plants it’ll be a nice little surprise!
