This time of year, any green thumb or gardening enthusiast will appreciate a glimmer of the warm spring days that are to come! Here’s one of our DIY gift ideas for Christmas (but this gift idea works any time of year) that’s perfect for the gardener in your life. It’s a gardening kit packaged in a customized chalkboard terra cotta pot. Include a handwritten note and a gift card for extra thoughtfulness.
It’s an easy craft project. Here’s how to do it.
Materials for this DIY Gift Project:
- Rust-Oleum Specialty Chalkboard Spray Paint
- Terra cotta pot
- Your choice of gardening goodies: garden gloves, seed packets, garden trowel and a Home Depot gift card
Spray paint the exterior of your terra cotta pot. Allow the paint to dry according to package directions.
Prep the chalkboard surface by rubbing chalk completely around the sides of the pot so it covers the entire surface. Wipe the chalk away with a paper towel.
This step creates a prepped surface optimal for chalkboard writing. (If you skip this step, the first message you write on it will never completely erase!)
Fill your terra cotta pot with assorted gardening goodies and write a nice message. Tie a bow with ribbon or garden twine around the pot to make a great gift!
Wrapped in garden twine, the DIY garden kit is a perfect addition to any stocking or potting bench! Happy gifting season!
