Back in 2011, one of the very first things I ever “pinned” was this. A fabric covered flower pot, which also led me to one of my favorite bloggers Ashley Ann Photography. I have thought about them for years but the main problem is that I am not a “plant person”. I am crafty and I am a mom yes, but I kill all plants. But I am trying to change that and I thought a cute pot would help.
I used my new Martha Decoupage because it’s waterproof and it’s my new obsession. I want to cover everything in it.
I cut pieces of fabric and started wrapping them around the pot. I started with decoupage underneath. The terracotta really soaks it up so I had to add a thick layer. I just folded the fabric under on the bottom of the pot.
I used 3 big sections of fabric and overlapped them so I didn’t have any folds.
It dried pretty quickly and I attempted to pot my plant which is a funny story. I bought the plant a week before potting it and I left it in my hot, Houston garage in the middle of summer for a week. My mom came over and let me know I was suffocating it. I didn’t even know that was a thing. Wish me luck keeping it alive, it already has one strike against it.
She lives in my craft room now, I have already remembered to water her :) Is anyone else not a green thumb at all?
