Well Dressed Flower Pots

Hello Readers. My 5 minute project today is all about plants. I was given these two beautiful plants. A friend was cleaning out because she was moving. (Thanks Sharon!) They were nicely put in pots and had pretty moss on top. I love them. The pots are in great shape but they don't really "match" anywhere in my house. Do they have to match? No. But since they are small baby plants, a lot of the pot is showing. And the only well lit spot is right in view.

I have a lot of fabric scraps and leftover pieces from past projects. I went digging in the craft closet to see what I could find. I found some nice light blue denim. It had a cool reverse pattern too. I liked both sides. I could have hot glued the fabric but...

I used this easy fix. That's right, it's a safety pin.

Here is my first arrangement. I tried to flip the fabric to show both sides. I wasn't impressed. 

I decided to used the darker side, it seemed to look better against the white table. I love how they look. They are in a very prominent place so they can get the light they need. They were always beautiful plants. Now they are well dressed too.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Good idea! How did you do the bottom part?

Hello Jenny_o. I just wrapped the fabric around. I pulled it a little tighter at the bottom. The safety pin held it all in place. The back isn't very pretty but I turned the back towards the wall.
