Flowering garden pots are a quick way to add a touch of color in your home but unfortunately, their plastic pots leave a lot to be desired. Rather than replant them into a prettier pot, I like to wrap them up in something. I’ve used book pages to wrap pots but today I decided to create shabby chic garden pots by wrapping them in cut-up tea towels.
First, measure the diameter of the plastic garden pot and cut a length of a thin tea towel so that it slightly overlaps when wrapped around the pot. Also size the fabric so that’s slightly larger height-wise. I used inexpensive white dish towels that I purchased from Target for just a few dollars.
I folded the fabric over at the top to give it a little more interest. I purposely left the edges a bit ragged as opposed to sewing a hem. It adds to the shabby chic look … and it means I don’t have to do any sewing … an added bonus!
This was a quick transformation that was easy on the pocketbook!
