Ten Creative Ways to Wrap Potted Plants and Flowers – Quick and Easy Gift Ideas

Even though giving a potted plant or flower is probably one of the easiest gifts out there -  I still love to give them just as much I like to receive them.

While picking up a growing beauty can seem pretty effortless – a unique presentation is a simple way to add some meaning and personalized style.

If picking up a potted plant or flower is on your gift gifting list this weekend, don’t settle for those plain plastic pots or cellophane – instead take a peek at these ten quick and creative ways to wrap up those gifts that keep on giving.

Burlap is inexpensive, easy to work with and makes great pot covers.  This versatile fabric can be personalized to fit practically any type of style with the addition of a fabric bow, tied ribbon or even lace. The threads can simply be pulled to create ruffles or loop holes to gather the fabric around the pots.

How about socks? Yes – socks! The stretchiness makes them perfect pot covers as shown above by Rachel Ray. The bold bright colors and fun patterns can cover up a pots in a snap.
Put the plain brown bag from the grocers to good use by turning it into paper bag flower basket. It just takes a couple snips with a pair of scissors – full directions can be found at Martha Stewart.

A roll of party crepe paper can easily be found for under $1 and can be turned into beautiful plant wraps with the simple addition of a little paint. The full tutorial can be found at Martha Stewart.
 Erica Lang Norris over at Houzz shares some great ideas using clothing accessories to dress up potted plants. A beautiful scarf or decorative belt can add color and style to any inexpensive terra cotta or even plastic planter instantly – plus is doubles as two gifts in one!
Clay Plant Ornaments can easily be made to adorn any plant – Make mini figurines or even a pennant banner stamped with any personalized saying you wish. A box of oven baked clay costs under $5 and goes a very long way. The full tutorial for the mini mushrooms and pennant banner plant accessories can be found here.
 If giving a fresh bouquet make a personalized painted wrap with kraft paper and acrylic paints 
Enjoy.
