I spent some time yesterday switching up my hutch for spring - oh how I am still loving having it in the kitchen! I added this patchwork pot, a craft I did for Beautifully Rooted last year (I miss that site!) and realized that I had never shared the full tutorial in this space. I thought I would this week as my make something monday project - a fun and simple idea for all the fresh plants we are potting as the weather changes. Hope you are having a great week so far!
Lately I have been spending a little bit of time working on brightening up our front porch for the summer. I dug out a bunch of mismatched furniture and things from our garage including an old plant stand and instantly thought I needed to make some quirky and cheerful pots to fill it up. This project is super easy and was virtually free - one of the best kind of projects in my opinion!
spray adhesive and/or mod podge
I started by cutting out several different two inch strips of fabric about four inches long. It all really depends on the size of your pots but it is easier to cut up a bunch of pieces roughly the same size first.
Next one by one I used spray adhesive to stick the strips on one at a time. If you don't have any spray adhesive on hand I am sure mod podge would work just fine on this step too.
Once you have completed the bottom of the pot measure the circumference of the top edge
and cut another two inch strip long enough to go all the way around.
Apply the piece of fabric the same way that you did on the bottom half.
Once you covered the entire pot with fabric you are ready to seal it all with the mod podge.
A sponge brush makes it really easy to get a nice even coat all over the entire pot.
