I love spring greenery!  Spring projects are all made better with spring flowers and greenery!  Right?  There’s one catch.  I can’t keep a plant alive.  I’m serious.  I’m a total plant killer.  Sorry!  That means I rely on fresh cut flowers and faux house plants – especially in the spring when greenery abounds in crafts and decor projects.

Today I’m sharing a quick and easy DIY tutorial to help you display your plants and flowers this spring, or in my case, my favorite faux houseplants from Ikea!

Simple DIY Paper Bag Planters

Supplies

  • brown paper lunch bags
  • simple brown twine
  • thin white satin ribbon
  • scissors
  • small potted plants or vases

Directions

  1. Unfold one brown paper lunch bag.  Crumple it up, and then smooth it out again.  Repeat this process if necessary, until the desired texture is achieved.
  2. Unfold the bottom of the paper bag, and stand the bag upright.
  3. Gently fold down the top edges of the paper bag.  Keep rolling the edges until the paper bag is the height of your potted plant or small vase.
  4. Place your pot or vase in the paper bag.
  5. Wrap the bag with twine and ribbon – twice around.  Secure with a bow.
