Seasonal Event:


  • Fruit Box, Plastic Milk Crate, or Plastic Storage Bin
  • Artificial Turf
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Garden Shears or X-Acto Knife
  • Permanent Marker
  • Ribbon


  1. Lay out your artificial turf with the turf side facing down
  2. Place your fruit box or plastic bin on the tuf and trace with permanent marker
  3. Repeat this for all sides. *TIP: For the top of you bin cut true to size. For the sides of the box, give yourself an extra ½ inch at the top
  4. Use garden shears or an X-Acto Knife to cut artificial turf to fit each side of your crate *TIP: If you want a larger hedge gift, combine two milk crates together with hot glue prior to making measurements.
  5. Hot glue each piece on by one, with the turf spears facing up
  6. Use a thick ribbon and wrap gift with a large bow on top

Note: For outdoor hedge gifts make sure the base you use is weatherproof ex. plastic milk crate, wooden crate, plastic bins. For indoor hedge gifts you can use a cardboard box, as long as the artificial turf is lightweight and won’t weigh it down
