Madigan made… a simple update to store bought lilies.
I love fresh flowers. Do you enjoy giving flowers as gifts? They are one of my favorite go-to gift ideas!
In the spring, our local grocery stores and garden centers are packed with all kinds of potted plants. This past weekend I saw tons of stately lilies. Lilies are so pretty and elegant, don’t you think? They work for lots of different gift occasions: Mother’s Day, Easter, birthdays, teacher’s gifts, etc.
I recently picked up a lily plant this past week for Easter to give as a hostess gift. Most of the time when I buy a potted plant at the grocery store, the pots are plastic and wrapped in some kind of plastic or paper to keep the moisture contained. Practical? Yes. Chic? Not always.
I found a simple way to update that brown wrapper on my plant… I just grabbed my hot glue gun and some rope!
Modern Rope Wrapped Lily Plant
- Glue gun
First I trimmed the excess paper from the wrapping down to the edge of the pot.
Then, I used my glue gun to wrap and attach rope around the top half of the container. I added dabs of glue as I went around the perimeter and covered the area with rope.
I tucked and glued the ends of the rope inside the wrapper edge, next to the pot.
Adding the rope to the wrapper was a simple and inexpensive update. I loved how the rope detail complemented the modern form and color of the white lily. If you didn’t have rope, a wide grosgrain ribbon could also be very cute attached to the pot.
So, next time you are in need of an easy gift idea, pick up a pretty potted plant… and add a personal touch to the container to make your lily gift even more special!
