It's that time of year again.
Activities, practices and lessons are winding down.
I am SO thankful for our 'village'
who help us teach and mold our girls.
This week we celebrated the last night of AWANA at our church.
It's a special awards night acknowledging all the hard work the kids put into memorizing hundreds of verses throughout the year.
It takes a large number of dedicated people to make AWANA happen
and I wanted to make sure to thank the leaders who guided our girls.
With all the different activities the girls are in, I knew I needed to keep the cost down on gifts.
So here's how I made a sweet yet cheap succulent cute.
These little cuties are 4 bucks at Lowes.
I couldn't splurge on a nice pot
(it adds up quickly)
but knew I wanted to jazz up the plastic pots a bit.
I had pinned a bunch of tutorials on making paper bags, but it turned out they were all written in another language.
Here's how I improvised:
First I found an object that was similar in size to my plant.
I made sure to trim the top with fun scissors.
Then I simply wrapped the object like a gift on one side and secured it with my handy dandy glue gun.
Then I just slipped the paper off the object and I had myself a cute little bag that was just the right size.
After embellishing with fun tape and a note, it was ready to deliver.
One activity down, 3 more to go!
This is such a fun and crazy time of year!
Hope you have a relaxing weekend!
