The Tutorial: Planter Bags
(scroll down for a quick video tutorial)
Crumple a brown paper bag a few times. Just crush it into a ball, and then smooth it out again.
Gently fold down the top of the paper bag – by about an inch. Continue to roll down the top edge of the paper bag, until the bag is the desired height. Be careful not to rip the bag!!
Add a small potted plant, or even a small vase of flowers.
Wrap the paper bag with twine and ribbon. Tie a simple bow.
That’s it! How cute are these little faux plants from Ikea?
