Easy and Quick Last Minute Easter Favors
Spring/Easter makes me feel like everything's new and fresh.That's why I like to send my guests home from Easter Dinner with a plant.It just seems right to me.
''To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow''Audrey Hepburn
I needed to think up a way to put together something inexpensive
so I could continue with my tradition. These are the supplies I ended up using.
I was at Walmart perusing the garden section when I saw they had 6 packs on sale.
I grabbed a couple of Petunias
Then headed inside to find peat pots.
Once I got home I gave each peat pot a paint job in various Eastery colors.
While waiting for them to dry,
I hopped on the computer to check out my Graphics.
Printed out some Easter Graphics and once the pots were dry, I Mod Podged them on.
The next day I transplanted the Petunias into their own peat pots.
I tore a coffee filter up and placed a piece in the bottom of each pot to prevent the dirt from coming out but still allowing for complete drainage.
There ya go!
A buck a 6 pack, peat pots $1.59,
12 plant favors for under $4.00 ♥♥
And since the Petunias are in the peat pots, the whole pot can go right into the ground.
Easy peasy for my guests too!
All ready for Easter Sunday ☺

Pretty. This would be a nice gift for teachers day too. The kids are asked to bring a flower or plant for a teacher. Easy to plant it in the garden. Thanks for the idea.
