Red Jute Webbing Flower Pot Slipcover

Pin It

I have to admit that I have limited plant life here in the cottage. Keeping plants alive is not my strong point. Since we are surrounded by nature outside of our home, I tend to simply look out the window or go outside for my daily dose of plant love.


For the few brave plants who are hardy enough to survive my infrequent watering, I give a heartfelt salute! This little plant came in the scalloped plastic pot you see. Since the pot is not so glamourous, I've always tucked it inside attractive containers of some kind.


This red jute webbing is the kind used in upholstery and is the perfect height to cover the plastic flower pot. 


I simply wrapped it around the pot, cut it to length, glued the edges using a Gorilla Glue Precision Glue Pen, clamped the glued ends together using clothespins from Canvas Corp, and let it dry. Once the glue dried, I simply inserted the pot into the jute webbing cozy.


Success! A very simple success, but a success nonetheless! :) See...even the rock says so! And the elephant agrees!
