Gardening Bouquet

Mother’s Day and springtime birthdays are coming up on the calendar, so it’s the perfect time to get creative with gift giving! This bright and beautiful gardening bouquet is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys tending to their personal garden or potted plants. It is a gift that will keep on giving, as the recipient only needs to plant, water, and watch the seeds grow!

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Planter or Watering Can
  • Grass Filler, Foil Shreds, or Tissue Paper
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Tape
  • Jute String
  • Garden Tools: Clippers, Hand Rake, Shovel, Gloves, Hose Nozzle, Etc.
  • Flowering Seed Packets
  • Optional: Sunscreen and Bug Spray

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Choose a planter or watering can to act as your gift “basket”. This will serve as another gardening tool: a house to pot and plant flowers, or a vessel to water them!
  2. Fill the planter with grass filler to create a foundation to keep the tools and skewers upright (see image #1).
  3. Tape your seed packets onto wooden skewers and stick them into the grass filler (see image #2). The wooden skewers can also be used to help the gardening gloves stand upright in the grass filler.
  4. Fill the rest of the planter with the gardening tools and arrange accordingly.
  5. Tie jute string around the planter, gardening tools, and skewers for the finishing, rustic touch.
