Spring Hostess Gift

Today I have the lovely Anna from Ask Anna with an amazing gift that you create for a Spring Hostess Gift!


I'm so excited to show you all this hostess gift that I made for a friend last week. We very rarely get invited over to other people's houses for dinner (I'm usually the hostess) so when we do I go all out!

About a month ago I saw this super cute idea over at The Tattered Tag and LOVED it! I decided that Christina's idea would be the perfect inspiration for this hostess gift. :)


So here's my take on it:

Supplies:


1. White bucket from the Target dollar bins


2. Empty applesauce jar


3. Extra pot from last summer


4. Ribbon from my craft box


5. Seeds I purchased from Target







First I washed the pot so that it looked like new. Then I stuffed it with paper towels and tissue paper so that everything would sit higher.




Next I poked holes in the lid of the applesauce jar so that the worms could breathe. We have amazing soil in our backyard so I was excited to give her some. :)





I filled the jar with soil and then placed some extra fabric I found over it so that it looked cute.







Then I went out and picked a bunch of herbs from my garden and filled up the white bucket. I LOVE fresh herbs so I'm always excited to share them with others! Here I have rosemary, thyme and sage.










I also have some new sprigs of mint coming in so I plucked one out so that she could replant it and have her own mint plant for summer mojitos!











Then I cut out a little sign and personalized it.






I love it. I kind of wanted to give it to myself but I knew the recipient would love it too. :) I had so much fun making it. I bought double of everything so I can't wait to make another one!!!
