Make a simple wood box from reclaimed – or new – wood, perfectly sized for your containers and then fill the containers with plants, treats, and more for a special gift.
Scrap wood – or new wood painted to look old – can be turned into a cute box perfectly sized to hold whatever containers you have. That’s a custom gift, right? I used mason jars in the example above and they’re always a great option, but you can use any type of containers you can find from recycled glass to galvanized pots.
Here are some options to fill the jars/containers:
- home-canned foods
- soap & lotion dispensers
- cupcake kit (one jar with liners, the other with decorating items)
- bean & bread mixes (like this red beans & rice mix & this focaccia bread)
- breakfast kit (with pancake mixes & syrup)
And that’s just a few ideas – what would you fill the containers with?
