Dress up your plants with stick-in plant decorations. They're an ornamental addition to your own arbor, and they add a touch of whimsy to plants that you're giving to friends or relatives.

What You'll Need:

  • Colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers or crayons
  • Glue
  • Craft sticks

Step 1: On colored paper, draw and cut out a butterfly, a ladybug, a bird, or any other design you like. Decorate your designs so they are really special.

Step 2: Glue your paper design to the end of a craft stick (or a clean ice cream stick). The other end of the stick will anchor the paper design in the potting soil.

Step 3: Find a plant in your house that looks like it could use a little decoration, or share these cheerful stick-ins with people who might not be able to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.
