Magnetic Strawberry Plant Party Favors

Supplies: a large piece of wood or sheet metal, magnetic primer, paint brush, empty tin cans, twine, tags, stamp (this one is from Olive Manna), strong magnets, strawberry plants, soil, mini flag (made with a skewer and ribbon)

Directions: Paint the sheet metal or piece of wood with two coats of magnetic primer and let dry. Remove labels from tin cans and wash thoroughly and let dry. Stamp the tags and attach to the tin cans by knotting a piece of twine. Fill each can with soil and top with the strawberry plants. Stick the end of the skewer into the soil with the flag hanging over top. Attach two magnets to the back of the can and display in rows on the magnetized board for your guests to grab as the party ends.

We’re so excited to have one of our fave event planners Melanie Blodgett as a guest contributor this week. Visit her on her own blog, You Are My Fave. Photos by Leslie Tippets.

  4. Love the favor idea! Is there a way you can offer a download of the little flag topper or where to get the paper to make them? I love the scalloped edge look. :)

  9. Thanks to Amy @Modpodgerocks, I found your blog. I love this idea of the tin can with strawberry plant. I constantly re-use tin cans for fun projects. Thanks for the inspiration.

    [...] {strawberries} Posted on May 18, 2011 by fraserceleb001 Sometimes just one piece of fabric leads to thinking of so much more. For some reason the last few weeks I can’t get the above Brunschwig & Fils strawberry fabric out of my mind. Of course that lead to me paying very close attention to all things strawberry. I would love to use that fabric in a little girls room. Images 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 I love the above idea of planting a personal strawberry plant.

    [...] Mothers love flowers but a bouquet bought from the shop seems a little impersonal. So why not make something yourself? Take a large piece of wood or sheet metal, magnetic primer, a paint brush, an empty tin can, twine, tags, a stamp, magnets, plants, soil and a mini flag and get to work. You’ll make a wonderful planter in no time.{found on onecharmingparty}. [...]
