Wooden paper cups, $.75 each,
Adhesive stencil film, $10, and Multisurface Pearl acrylic paint, in Mint Chip, $2 for 2 oz., by Martha Stewart Crafts,


  • Stencil film

  • Wooden cups

  • Craft paint and paintbrush

  • Small plants


  1. First, cut a heart shape out of stencil film, then stick the film on an inexpensive wooden cup.

  2. Dab paint on the stencil, then peel the film off.

  3. Make as many as you need, then transfer a small plant into each cup (we used succulents).
