How to: decorate indoor pot plants with old bonbon cases

A little brainwave I had today and thought others would appreciate. With the festive day approaching, consider saving used bonbon cases to decorate your small indoor plant pots next year. A home potted up plant decorated with bonbon cases would also make a nice gift 🎁

Peel apart and break apart the case into three sections. You only need two sections to complete a pot wrap 

Use the existing paper tab and slot to join two sections together. Alternatively a little sticky tape can be used.

Cut off the zigzag edges. I've used a stainless steel ruler and cutting knife for the neatest result but scissors are fine if you prefer. 

Check height fit on pot and trim back so cardboard won't get wet when watering your plant.

Tape in position tab side first.
Tape end snugly in place.

All done! 

You can coordinate your pots by using the different designs/colour ways from the same box of bonbons. 

🎄✨Merry Christmas!✨🎄
