Hostess or Housewarming Gift Idea: Mint Plant with Teabag Card

How to make Mint Plant with Teabag Card hostess or housewarming gift idea free project tutorial

I whipped together this easy but clever hostess gift for my friend Wendy’s ‘Welcome Home’ housewarming barbeque: a potted mint plant with a teabag ‘card’ perfect for summer sun tea.

Wendy’s new 3-bedroom Chicago condo has a rooftop deck that’s easily the size of a large outdoor beer garden. No kidding, it’s really that huge – I’ve never seen anything like it in the city. So I figured she’ll need some plants to cozy it up a little bit.

I potted the mint plant in a cute white planter. Then I made a makeshift ‘card’ out of a couple Lipton tea bags, slipped them onto wooden takeout chopsticks and into the dirt.

Mint is right up there with basil as the perfect summer herb, from sun tea with mint (brewed safely) to yummy homemade mojitos. Housewarming indeed!

How to make a Mint Plant with Teabag ‘Card’ for Hostess or Housewarming Gifts

Assemble your supplies. The white planter is from IKEA and I bought a mint plant and organic dirt at my favorite urban gardening store.

Use your Sharpie to write a little notes and doodles on a couple teabags to make your “card.” Separate your wooden chopsticks and slip one into the label, being careful not to tear the perforations. Press the other end into the dirt and off to the party!
