DIY: Fabric-Wrapped Succulent Favors

Written by Sara Albers and Melissa Fenlon of  Alice & Lois

Whenever we host a gathering, we always like to gift guests with a little something they can take home. Today we’re sharing a simple way to add a personal touch to a parting present with these DIY fabric-wrapped succulents. We used bold, black-and-white patterns from Minted’s line of fabrics, but this project is also a great way to use up any leftover fabric scraps you’ve hung on to. Add a stamped name tag and pretty ribbon, then display a succulent at each place setting or pass them out as guests depart. They’d also make a great wedding favor, don’t you think?

Steps:

1. Cut your fabric into 8.5″ x 8.5″ squares.

2. Following the directions on the spray starch can, spray the fabric.

3. Using a hot iron, press the starched fabric.

4. Trim the edges so the square is 8″ x 8″.

5. Apply a couple strips of double-sided tape to the bottom and sides of the succulent container.

6. Place the succulent in the center of the fabric square; next, lift two adjacent sides of fabric up, pressing the fabric to adhere to the sides of the container.

7. Next, tuck in the other sides (see photo) and press the fabric to adhere to the sides of the container.

8. Wrap ribbon tightly around the container and tie. Add a name tag, if desired.
