Last year a very good friend arrived at our home with a birthday gift in hand that left quite an impression on me. It was a small succulent in a recycled tin, wrapped in tree bark and tied with rope. It was cute, it was personal, it was completely not commercial.
Since then I’ve been collecting ideas for plant gifts, from decorated pots to unique containers. Some of these have DIY instructions to make your own plant gifts…
A miniature glass terrarium is also featured as a step-by-step project in issue 108 of Craftwise magazine (get the digital version if you live outside South Africa), if you’re interested in making your own.
