Mother's Day Gifts: for the gardener

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I have a huge itch to buy garden supplies and get planting. I thought it was a perfect excuse to create a bunch of gifts for the gardener in our life. Today I am sharing one of the gift "pots" I put together and with the exception of Tuesday I will be sharing one each day with you. If you have a gardener in your life these will all make lovely Mother's Day gifts. 



To keep my costs down I purchased the majority of my supplies at Dollarama. They have an impressive selection of garden supplies and the highest priced items will only be $3. I also picked up some supplies at Home Depot an Canadian Tire. 

To create this gift pot you will need:
- Plant pot- stuff the bottom with tissue paper (Dollarama)
- decorative bird house* (Dollarama)
- garden gloves (Dollarama)
- assorted seeds (Home Depot)
- plant (this is a sunflower Anna started from a kit purchased at Canadian Tire)

*I have purchased a bunch of these decorative bird houses and am going to spray paint them various colors and hang them throughout our front tree. How adorable and colorful! So excited.

This is such a smart idea! P.S. I totally came here because of your post on Pinterest. Social Media At Work!!

I love, love, love the idea of the birdhouses in the tree. I may have to steal that idea from you, penpal.
I had red Christmas balls hanging there all winter and it delighted me, but I couldn't think (or haven't taken the time to think) what to do for spring/summer.
