How to Make Brown Bag Planters
STEP 1: Supplies
You will need the following supplies to complete this project:
- Brown Paper Lunch Bags
- Ribbon or Lace
- 4 inch indoor plants
- Small pots
- Calloway’s Premium Potting Soil
Your plants, pots, and potting soil can be found at a Calloway’s or Cornelius near you! The remaining supplies can be found at your local craft store or grocery store.
STEP 2: Pot your Plants
Pick up small terra cotta pots and fill them with potting soil, being sure to leave room for your plant. Remove your plants from their plastic containers and loosen up the roots. Place them in your pots and add more soil as needed.
STEP 3: Wrinkle your Bags
Give the paper bags some texture and character by crumbling them up into a ball until you have reached your desired texture. Smooth out the bags and gently fold them down to the height of your pottery – leaving enough height to cover the pot.
STEP 4: Add your Ribbon or Lace
Measure out your ribbon or lace so there is enough to wrap around the plant, leaving extra material to tie it into a bow. Repeat for each plant.
Step 5: Enjoy!
You are done! Such an easy craft but also so cute! Now go decorate your table top, desk, or wherever you want to add that something extra to your space!
