Fabric Flower Pots
Everyone has some old flower pots hanging around that just aren’t pretty enough to display indoor houseplants. Convert these rustic or plain pieces into great accessories by simply covering them with beautiful fabric. Head to the fabric store and pick out some complementary fabric patterns to match your existing home decor. Or, better yet, recycle fabric from old curtains, duvet covers, old garments or pillow cushions.
Simply wrap the fabric around the pot to get an estimation of how much fabric you’ll need and then cut the fabric to the correct size. Cover the pot with Mod Podge glue (craft glue) and then wrap the fabric around the pot. Cut off excess fabric and glue down the seam. Now you have a fun and decorative flower pot to display.
