I have posted before about not really being a crafter...but it seems as though I save every little thing just in case I might have a use for the item.

Here is a really cute and inexpensive gift you can make for those gardners in your life.

Bling Sticks for Plants

I used the Chinese chop sticks that come with Chinese take-out.....broke them in two pieces.  Then used some of the flat ornaments I bought last year on sale at Hobby Lobby....you know the ones that are two for a dollar.  If you need more bling just glue on some glitter.

Use your glue gun to attach the ornament to the stick...and you are finished.  How easy is that.

Inexpensive and simple....you could even bundle a few of them together using a variety of ornaments...and tie it all up with a bow.

A simple, inexpensive gift for anyone who loves houseplants and wants to give them that little special Christmas touch.

Hugs....from my home to yours,



  1. Looks pretty Jo. I say the more sparkle the better.


  2. Terrific idea! I'm not a crafter either but I think I could manage this one.

  3. Great idea! We always have chopsticks and they used to get tossed, but my oldest son actually loves eating with them and is really good at using them. Hope you are having a great week. Tammy

  4. What a lovely idea Jo.

    I would never think of doing this
    but might give these sticks a go.

  5. Plants??? Sorry, I couldn't resist. I don't have any plants. Didn't have any when I had a house either. I find it so strange sometimes that I just don't have that beauty gene in me. Or that creative instinct. Your ideas and your home are so beautiful and like I said before, if Jim didn't do some decorating, nothing would be done by me. It's just not there. But I do so love to read your posts and I enjoy your pictures. They brighten my day.

  6. Pretty Jo!!!! I like the simplicity of it!

  7. Too Cute! I have to chuckle as I do the same things with little pretties I pick up here and there and stick them in my plants.

    I love your holiday spirit with these though and I just may have to do it too! :)

    Thanks for a great share!
    Love and Blessings...

  8. Clever idea. I love inexpensive ways to make things look special.

  9. You're so crafty :) And YOU Jo are Blog Bling!
    Hey, stick a few on the tree...

  10. very clever and they look so festive on your plants!

  11. This would be wonderful on a Christmas
    bouquet also with lots of greenery, berry
    branches and of course your blingee thingee !

  12. Usually when I hear the word Glue Gun...I start to hyperventilate. I . am. not. a crafter.
    But, this I might be able to handle. Really great idea.

  13. Oh, I love this idea. Thank you.


Your comments enrich my soul. I love hearing from you.
