Milk Carton Planter

Family Chic Spring Centerpiece

Here’s another easy spring centerpiece for you…

Family Chic Spring Centerpiece

Milk cartons are cut down and wrapped in linen to serve as planters for a simple spring centerpiece.

Family Chic Simple spring centerpiece how to

Using an X-Acto knife, I cut off the top 1/3 of a half gallon milk carton.

I tore rough linen fabric (that Home Depot drop cloth I love to work with) into one-inch wide strips and applied it to the carton with a glue gun.

Place plant inside. If you need the plant to sit higher up inside the carton, fill the bottom with crumpled up wax paper.

Top off with moss.

I picked up my potted daffodils in my supermarket for $2.99. You could also use these DIY planters to hold cut flowers if you prefer; the cartons are watertight.
