Inspirational Plant Pokes

Use these plant pokes to dress up and personalize your arrangements or potted plants.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes


  • foam letters
  • wooden shish kabob skewers
  • hot glue
  • beads, ribbon (optional)


Spell out a word, connecting the letters at various angles (to resemble handwriting) with hot glue. Attach word to skewer with hot glue.


Optional, randomly attach tiny beads to the letters and/or tie very narrow ribbons to the skewers.

Poke the skewers in the correct order into the floral arrangement at different heights.

Message Ideas:

  • "Faith Hope and Love" for a spring door decoration to encourage someone.

  • "He is Risen" for a small pot of grocery store mums for Easter giving.

  • "Missing You" for a spring grave floral arrangement.

  • "Sweet Feet" for bouquet for a little dancer.

Possibilities are endless. You can eliminate cards and use these unique personal messages which will last long after the flowers fade.

I have done similar things for a funeral - Brought a rosemary plant & had a ribbon that said "Rosemary is for Remembrance...."
