Flower Pot Makeover

I've been wanting to grow some fresh herbs in my kitchen and needed a way to spruce up my plain pots. I started with some pots from Home Depot (about $2 each) and some extra fabric I had from some pillows I made.First, wrap the fabric around the pot to make sure you have a long enough piece. Then cut it a couple inches longer than the pot.Mod Podge a small area of the pot and start in the center of the fabric pressing it onto the pot.Work your way around the pot in small sections. Since the pot isn't a perfect cylinder, the fabric won't stay perpendicular to the pot, so that's why you have to make sure and start in the middle of the fabric.Once both sides of fabric meet, trim the ends and Mod Podge one side down to the pot. Then, fold the other side over (so there isn't an unfinished edge showing) and glue that side down as well.Trim the fabric around the bottom of the pot and make cuts every inch or so so that you can fold over the bottom.Repeat that process for the top of the pot.To finish it off, Mod Podge over the entire fabric to secure everything and create a smooth finish.This is a super easy project that you can customize to match your decor!

This is such a great idea! I have always kept my fabric scraps, but rarely find projects small enough to use them on! I want to try this out right away!
