Welcome Spring Seeds and Pots

Hello, and thank you for visiting!  In just two days, it will officially be Spring, so I wanted to do a quick and fun craft to welcome the season.  

You will need:  
Assorted seeds
Contact paper in a floral pattern
Mini pots
Tulle or cellophane 
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Begin by lining up your planter to measure the contact paper.


Contact paper can sometimes be a beast to separate from its backing.  I've found that using an Exacto knife works exceptionally well.  

Once you have covered your pot and trimmed any excess, add a small package of seeds.

Set the pot in the middle if a strip of tulle,  

Wrap, and 

tie with ribbon. 

I added a small sprig of faux flowers before I double-knotted the ribbon.

Voilà!  This is a kitschy yet sweet gift you can deliver (or send) to friends as a way to welcome Spring!

Where to buy:  
Mini pots:  10/$1 The Dollar Tree
Contact paper: The Dollar Tree
Seeds 4/$1 at The Dollar Tree
Ribbon:  The 99¢ Store 
Blooms:  The Dollar Tree
Tulle:  on hand, from my local thrift
