Easy Paperwhite Gift


This week I am on vacation (at home) so I am posting very quick and easy projects. Since paperwhite bulbs are on sale now I thought they would make a fun hostess gift for january. A box will have 4-6 bulbs depending on the size. All you need to create a quick gift is a nice teacup or container. I found the teacups at the Goodwill store for .50 a piece. I also saw that Michael's has their holiday mercury glass votives at half off (they would also make pretty and inexpensive containers). Use the potting mix provided. A teacup will hold one to two bulbs. I added a little moss on top (you can pick up a bag at the dollar store). The bulbs will be blooming in a few weeks so you could also wait until then to bag them up. I just popped them into a clear bag and tied with a ribbon. I think they will look very cute when they are blooming!
