Show Off Homes....

My seedlings are growing up so quickly. Most of them are hanging out in my office with me so that I remember to check them and water as needed daily. Once again, I recycled these containers out of the garbage bin. I added about and inch of pebbles to the bottom of the cans and filled the rest with dirt and then added my bush pea seeds.

OK~ so this is what I have been looking at for the past few weeks. I decided that these little plants needed a home remodel. If not for them then for me. I was so tired of looking at the green bean, dog food and peanut butter containers on my desk every morning.

I picked out some scrapbook paper from my craft pile and glued them onto each of the containers with glue sticks. I then tied each one off with ribbon and raffia.


Working on some cute labels for each of my seeds so that I don't get them all mixed up.

Nothing on my desk, that day, was safe from my paper scraps!
Now I just need to wrap all the rest of the seedling homes that are hiding behind my computer screen on my desk. Always another project for tomorrow.

So cute and easy! I'm thinking that would make a great teacher gift too. Since my blog is about kids decor, this would be a great addition to my accessories gallery. Email me if you'd liek it included! Have a great day!
