This tiny plant sampler makes a perfect gift for a nature- or garden-loving dad. The container is a vintage metal box (old-school filing cabinet style) that I found at a thrift store for 49 cents. It is approximately 5.5 inches wide, 3.25 inches deep, 3.5 inches high when closed, and 5.5 inches high when open. Plants include creeping jenny, ajuga, and two types of succulents. This arrangement also features smooth pebbles, lichen, live moss, and a found, vintage blue floor tile for a pop of color. A small branch props the lid open.
Create a budget-friendly gift using a thrift store find, easy-to-propagate plants from your own garden, and found objects.
