The spring and summer seasons are the perfect time for garden lovers to well…get their garden on. Aside from needing the usual suspects (seeds and other materials), it is probably a good idea to keep a few pots nearby. If you are like us then you might get a wee bit tired of seeing the same old pots at the home improvement store. Where is the variety and pizzazz? So maybe you just have to settle for that orange hue…or maybe you can craft up your own pot cover.
Christine from Christine Chitnis has provided us with an awesome diy craft that is very simple to follow and looks great indoors. Pair pots together with different patterns for an awesome visual display.

Step #1: 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.
Step #2: 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.
Step #3: Continue doing this all the way around, without worrying about the top or bottom of the pot.
Step #4: 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.
Step #5: 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.
