I always love to shop Dollar Tree for gardening supplies and anything I can use for farmhouse or French Country crafts. When I spotted some pretty faux lavender wrapped in burlap, I bought several right up.

The faux lavender in the terra cotta pot was cute and I knew I could easily white wash the pot, but I really loved the burlap, and I thought the lavender bundles would look more natural “planted” in some peat seed pots I already had in my craft stash.

I also picked up some jute twine and lace ribbon. I have used this ribbon and twine for multiple projects in the past and I just love them!

Update: There are varying sizes of these pots at different Dollar Trees depending on the region. The Dollar Tree website only offers the 2 .25  inch pots, which is not large enough to fit the lavender. You will need the 3″ size.  If you cannot find the 3″ size at Dollar Tree to fit the lavender, you can also find the right size at your local Dollar General 6 for $1, or on Amazon at varying prices.

It is easy to give some age and “patina” to the pots by simply dry brushing on a little chalk paint or acrylic paint in light strokes.

It only takes a few minutes for the paint to dry and then you can simply stick the lavender down in the pots. I used a foam brush to lightly apply my Deco Art Americana Decor Chalky Finish Chalk Paint in the Everlasting shade (white). I love this chalk paint for crafting!

I wanted the pots to look really natural so I used some Dollar Tree Spanish moss to fill in the sparse areas between the lavender stems and to cover any bare spots.

To finish off my pots I just tied a little bit of the lace ribbon and jute twine around the pots.

I finished up my pots just in time for the Vintage Easter Joys Blog Hop. Here is how I styled my pretty French Country lavender pots in my Bright and Festive Easter Joys vignettes.

These sweet pots are beautiful little vignette accents for spring and summer decor. They would make great hostess or thank-you gifts or would be perfect for filling up a gift basket of garden-themed goodies for a birthday or Mother’s Day gift. This week I am working on a basket for my mom for Mother’s Day, and I can’t wait to share a post all about it. I love making gift up pretty gift baskets!

Do you love Dollar Tree as much as I do? If you find something cute while shopping there, be sure to buy up as many as you think you might want, because cute farmhouse, cottage and French Country style items usually sell out fast. Of course you can always order directly from Dollar Tree online and get great deals on craft supplies in bulk.

    super cute, Amber. I thought those were real lavender when I first saw them. I’m a fan of peat pots anyway, they really bring out the “vintage garden” feeling.

    Great eye for vintage looking garden supplies. I too love $tree but tend to get carried away wanting to buy too many of those great deals. Your adorable lavender pots are so sweet, love how they look.
    If you bought those lavender bunches recently by the time we get paid (25th) they’ll be gone at our $tree stores. Will go look tho just in case one of stores has them.. Want to get some of seed pots, those seem bigger than usual size. We have 3 stores, just have to go further to get to couple of them.
    Happy weekend

    Love, love, love this. Finding craft materials isn’t always easy in my part of Greece, but I’ve been inspired by this to think outside the box and will give it a try in some form or other!

    Trying to make some as mother’s day gifts. The seed pots at the DT are only 2 1/4” and the lavender does not fit inside. The pots at Walmart don’t have the same texture but maybe I can sponge the paint on. Hopefully I can make it work since it’s a great idea! I can never think up such things.

      Hello Sheila, thanks for the feedback! The pots at Dollar Tree must be a different size than the ones I had in my craft stash. I saw the seed pots at Dollar Tree when I picked up the lavender, but I didn’t need to buy them since I already had some in my stash from but I thought they were exactly the same as the ones I had. I will check the website listing to see if I can find the correct size and edit my post. I recently found some more at Dollar General if you have one of those nearby you can pick some up super cheap. They will fit the lavender and have the texture. How many do you need? I have several extras and I would be happy to send a couple to you if you can’t find them. Just send me your address to my email
      Thanks for visiting!

    These are adorable, who would of known taking the plant out of fancy pots and popping them into starter pots would look good-actually great.
    Love how you left the burlap on.
