DIY – Speech bubbles for your plants

Make this cute DIY speak bubble for your plants. Let them tell you they want to survive, or make one as a gift with a loving message!

I’m absolutely in love with this project. It looks so cute! The text I added to this speak bubble is sadly something that my plants would probably say when they could speak. I would love to keep everything alive, and really: I am learning But for some reason there are always moments that I just completely forget about my plants. That’s when they die, obviously. So maybe I made these speak bubbles as a reminder so this plant will really survive.

What you need for speech bubbles for your plants

  • scrap piece of tin MDF
  • white craft paint
  • colored craft paint (for the text)

  • sponge brush or large paint brush
  • wooden skewer
  • wood glue
