This simple neighbor gift idea is listed at #10 of my Happy Holiday Roundup.
I love this simple gift idea that I learned at the Thanksgiving Point Emporium.
What you need:
-an empty (washed out tin can)
-flowering bulbs (we used small paper white bulbs, but a big Amaryllis would be fun for a bigger sized tin can)
-strips of burlap
-holly & berries
1. Fill the can about 60% of potting soil.
2. Add in your flowering bulb making sure it is right side up (important tip here!)
3. Add a bit more soil and top with peat moss.
4. Water your bulb.
Now here’s the fun part! Wrap your tin can with burlap and make it look festive with the holly and berries!
It should flower in a few weeks…and they will love it! Cheap and easy! It might be too close to Christmas to make this happen for all your neighbor gifts this year, but it’s a fun one to bookmark for next year. Or better yet what about a New Year gift! I think I love that idea even more.
