When a bouquet of flowers will not do the trick for cheering up that someone special, give a lottery ticket bouquet! This gift was for my 84 year old father. Yes, I could have delivered flowers, but if you had seen the way his eyes lit up when he saw his special lottery ticket gift, you would understand how this was so much better. Young or old, everyone enjoys the opportunity to take a chance at winning with a lottery ticket!
What you need to create a Lottery Ticket Bouquet:
Flower Pot – mine was filled with foam and covered with dried moss. Both are available at any craft store.
Bamboo Skewers – just dig in your kitchen drawer and pull out your skewers! I used two sizes because I just happened to have them, but whatever you find will work.
Lottery Tickets – You know where to get these!
Tape – for, you guessed it, attaching the tickets to the skewers!
Bow – this is optional. I created a bow with some ribbon I had on hand. To secure it to the pot I attached it to a bamboo fork.
Put it all together and voila – a gift anyone would love!
Provided they are 18 or over and legally able to play the lottery!
For this gift, I purchased $20 in lottery tickets and my father won $12.
Yes – I lost money, which is the norm for lottery tickets, but I have to say it was worth the money for the surprise and fun the gift provided!
Make one today for your special someone!
