Simple Gift Giving Idea

I love, love homemade gifts :) both giving and receiving them is so much fun ..

I (with a little help from my girls) made these simple Succulent Gifts as an end of year gift for my girls teachers ..

They are really simple to make and cost effective too (bonus)

Here is what you will need ::

  • Succulents
  • Pots
  • Compost
  • Handful of decorative stones 
  • Cellophane and ribbon to gift wrap 

Add a little compost to the bottom of each pot, add your succulent and fill with compost , add the stones on top to decorate :) 

I watered mine and left them over night before gift wrapping ..

I added a "Thank you for helping my grow and Bloom this year" to each pot ..

You can find the printable here 

To gift wrap, I covered some cardboard with tissue paper , so that the cellophane would squash the succulent and then tied with natural raffia..

That's it, simple :)
