’Tis the season when all of our calendars fill up with holiday parties and events for a solid two months.  With so  many engagements on the go, time is tight, and so are our spending budgets. I’m a huge fan of making gifts during the holiday season, and I always try to block out time in my schedule (even when it’s difficult to do) so that I can bake my favourite cookies (biscotti are something that friends and family have come to rely on me for at this time of year) and homemade granola that I package and give to friends and family, especially when they’re hosting a gathering.

Each year I tend to make my classics, and shake things up with something new that I can add into the mix. When Seal-It Glitter Tape asked me to create something using their fun, sparkly tape (that does not flake off, thank God) I instantly thought of creating festive little holders for anything from small succulents to even mini Christmas trees! Not only is creating this holiday DIY succulent hostess gift quick and easy, but it’s inexpensive too. With the tape, holder and plant included, each one should add up to less than $10, and take you less than 10 minutes to make.

Even if you don’t plan to make these for hostess gifts, they are also a super cute and inexpensive way to add festive vibes to your home, especially if you don’t have a lot of space. Sadly, #CasaGC definitely cannot accommodate a full-size tree, so I’ll be using these to decorate too.

Here’s what you need to make an easy DIY succulent hostess gift with Seal-It Glitter Tape:

What You Need:

If you’re wondering where to get mini real Christmas trees or succulents, I picked some up from my local florist where they were each $5.99 or less. I was able to purchase the plain square mini tree holders in white and silver from the florist, and found simple glass holders (look for candle holders to make it easier) at the dollar store for the succulents.

Seal-It Glitter Tape ranges from $2.99 to $5.50 per roll and can be purchased in-store at Shoppers Drug Mart and Sears Canada. You can also buy it online at SealItGlitterStore.ca where you can get 25% off and free shipping until December 31st, 2016!

What To Do:

Pretty simple, right? My advice is to gather everything you need then sit back and DIY while you binge watch your favourite show on Netflix on a lazy (yet productive) Sunday. Trust me, you’ll have everyone checked off of your list in no time.

Happy Holidays, everyone!
