Today is an exciting day.  I’m partnering up with 101+ talented bloggers for Kristen Duke from Capturing Joy Birthday Celebration Week to bring you 101+ inexpensive birthday gift ideas for your friends!  All week long, Kristen is sharing birthday tips and giveaways so be sure to check out her Party. Since I love plants, I’m sharing an easy way to spruce one up for a birthday gift idea!

Washi tape is so versatile, you can use it on so many things.  I got this pack of washi tape as a gift (how funny is that?) and thought it would fun to give this plastic terracotta pot that was holding the cactus a little makeover.
This was so easy and took me five minutes! All I did was cut strips of tape and applied it to the top and down the pot until the bottom.  Do this until the entire pot is covered.   
I’m not a way crafty person and I don’t make printables, because I’m lame like that.  I had a card making kit from Stampin Up from their My Paper Pumpkin and cut out a square, added some stickers and punched a hole and tied some yarn to attach the gift tag to the pot.  And ta da, you’re done!
