Mini Planter Placecards

I love making special place cards or escort cards. It works even better when they double as favors! Today, we’re partnering with Ecoscraps to make place cards from teeny tiny terra cotta pots. We painted our pots all the colors of the rainbow and planted grass inside to feel summery and fresh. While this DIY takes a little bit of prep work, the steps are easy-peasy and the grass actually grows pretty quickly. We used Ecoscraps plant food along with soil to fill each little pot. Then, we just placed the seeds on top of the soil and with water and sunlight, saw growth within a couple of days. One thing we like about Ecoscraps is that it diverts food waste from landfills to create organic, sustainable soils and plant foods. It’s a win-win! Enter below for a chance to win a $250 gift card to Home Depot so you can pick up some soil to try for yourself!

These little pots go along great with summer party decor. It’s like every guest has a little garden right at their place! Then, when the party is over, they can take them home and continue to watch them grow. Because Ecoscraps recycles food waste to create their organic soils and plant food, you can rest easy knowing that you’re helping out the environment and your little plant friends. Happy planting!

    I just moved and have a small backyard (never had one before) and i can’t wait to start a small herb garden! This would be perfect for that!

  2. Heidi

    I would use the soil to continue planting succulents. They are the one plant I manage to keep alive throughout the year. I am also trying my hand at growing herbs like peppermint and basil to add to summer recipes!

    June 9, 2017

    That is such a thoughtful idea, because they not only serve as placecards but can be used as a small gift at the same time!

    Very fun! I would use it to help my little herb garden. I live in a small space and have no outdoor garden area, but I love having fresh herbs for my cooking :)

    June 9, 2017

    This is such a cool idea, especially with the EcoScraps environmentally friendly soil! I would use the soil for my Mandevilla that is sitting on an outside patio. I’m sure the red flowers would love some EcoScrap Flower Plant Food!

    Sooooo…. living in a city there’s no time to breathe, and if there’s time, there’s no space… so ye… very uninspiring to do any good whatsoever… but recently bought a little bungalow and I’m in love !! Not as big or pretty or clean or stocked like my city home, but I have nature and I’m discovering a whole new side of me… an organic side shall i say? I’m ready to roll up my sleeves, and diy all day….. be it planters for plants or painting a pic for that big bare wall… And the best part ??? There’s a home depot just 10 minutes away from me …. oh…. I’m dreaming already!!! Let me win 😉

    Well, since today is my birthday, I am treating myself to buying a small fiddle leaf fig tree from this cool nursery in Half Moon Bay! I have an awesome bay window in my room and I am dreaming of that area to be a relaxing space to breathe in fresh air and chill with my plant children. <3

    I’d love to get my hands on some of the plant food for my house plants. I’m currently changing over to all white pots for a real clean look. I also have a few orange trees including a mandrin orange that looks like he can use some of the citrus food desperately!

  36. Janelle

  37. Jake S.

    I love these tiny planters. Great summer project for my kids. They might even serve as welcome back gifts for teachers. Too soon to talk about back to school but such a cute idea. This soil can also help us bring our veggie garden back to life.

  39. Margit

    June 9, 2017

    Oh my gosh, these are so cute and unique! Such a great, unexpected surprise to stumble across at a party. I’ve never thought about placecards that much before, but now I can’t stop thinking about different designs for them! I need to throw a party just so I have an excuse to make some 😜
