WEDNESDAY WHIMSY / a pretty diy flower pot
Today's Wednesday Whimsy comes from Amaris who put together a super fun DIY flower pot! Amaris is an artist who loves DIY's and spending time on Pinterest. She also has mad style and has been very involved with the fashion community. She'll start working for Anthropologie in the Summer, but we're so happy to have her help out with this DIY in the meantime! Now that it's Spring, we couldn't think of anything better than this pretty flower pot.
- Terracotta pot
- Mod Podge
Start by cutting a length of fabric that will wrap once around your pot. Leave extra room for folding it over on the top and bottom. Cut slits in the fabric around the top, to avoid puckering as you make your way around. Begin by coating a small section of the pot with Mod Podge. Stick the beginning of your fabric length to the pot and once it is in place, coat the fabric with Mod Podge. Continue doing this all the way around, without worrying about the top or bottom of the pot. When the outside of the pot is finished, trim your fabric so that less than an inch hangs over the top and bottom. Begin at the top, folding the fabric into the pot in pleats so that it lays nice and flat around the rim. Coat in Mod Podge. Do the same for the bottom, folding the fabric in pleats so that the bottom edge of the pot remains smooth. Coat any loose flaps of fabric with Mod Podge. Now let your pot dry. [Christine Chitnis]
