As people start planting flowers and vegetables in their gardens, there is a plethora of leftover plastic flower pots to deal with. My friend Andrea shared this clever project, recycling her plastic flower containers into cute containers for her girl’s room. All you need is some Mod Podge glue, cute fabric and some spray adhesive and you’ve got yourself some cute new containers for a bedroom, kitchen or home office.
The first steps are to clean out the flower pots thoroughly with dish soap. Dry well.
Pick up some cotton fabric at your local store.
Cut the fabric to fit around your pot. Spray adhesive in a well ventilated space and then wrap the fabric around the pot. Once dry, paint the pot with Mod Podge glue to finish the look. (Alternatively, you can skip the spray adhesive and just use the Mod Podge only.)
Let the pots dry thoroughly before using.
Match the containers to your kid’s room, or pick some fun fabric to dress up your home office. The options are endless.
