  • In this episode of Modern Country Makes we show you how to pretty up a flower pot

    First, lay out all your materials.

    To make this you will need:
    – A flower pot
    – A length of fabric
    – A ruler
    – Spray adhesive
    – Scissors
    – A pencil

    Step 1 Measure the height and the widest part of the pot
    Step 2 Measure your fabric: you need a rectangle 1.5 times the widest part of the pot, and the height of the pot plus 10cm.
    Step 3 Cut this out, then roll the fabric around the pot to check that it fits.
    Step 4 Remove the fabric then, in a well-ventilated space, spray the flower pot with adhesive
    Step 5 Place the flower pot on its side on the edge of the fabric, then roll the fabric around it to form a cone shape
    Step 6 Trim the excess fabric along the side and the bottom, leaving enough to fold a small amount underneath the pot. Make sure the drainage hole is left open.
    Step 7 Trim a little excess from the top of the fabric, then make diagonal snips in the fabric to enable you to fold it into the top of the pot neatly.
    Step 8 Spray some adhesive around the inside edge of the pot, then fold the fabric over to secure it. Et voila! Mix and match fabrics to create a pretty display.
