While trying to organize some of my craft supplies and junk finds, I came across three little moss purses I had purchased a few years ago. I also found a few doilies for another project, and a pair of vintage flower earrings.
These would be cute for a vintage style spring moss purse. Spring is just around the corner and the pastel pink and blue in the vintage clip on earrings would be a great addition to add color to the doily. So, I grabbed the glue gun, and gathered my supplies for the moss purse. Oh, the organizing? It can wait.
If something catches my eye at the thrift store or flea market, I buy it. I’ll always find a use for it, and it was perfect for this moss purse planter. I folded the doily in half and put half on the outside and half on the inside. I just put a dollop of glue on the back and attached it to the moss purse both inside and out, and clipped the earrings onto the doily.
A spring flower pick was added to the plant.
You could add tulips or other spring flowers such as daffodils for an Easter gift, or fill with Easter surprises. I try to repurpose my thrift store finds throughout the seasons. Orange doily and a Halloween pic. At Christmas, you could add vintage Christmas decorations. These purses would also make great wedding or wedding shower decorations.
The moss purse is lined with plastic. I take my ivy out to water, and then replace it. I also spritz the purse occasionally to keep it green.
