You guys, I bought my first cactus!! It actually is incredibly hard to find an adorable cactus. If anyone has any recommendations of good places to buy some awesome cacti, please share.
Well this new friend needed a sweet pot SO I got out some left over IKEA fabric and bought a $1.99 pot (from IKEA) and got to work. This DIY is so simple and I am loving how it turned out.
Read the simple tutorial after the jump
First cut out your pieces. Since my fabric was striped, I thought it would look cool to have different pieces and shapes, making the stripes go in all different directions. BUT if you want something more uniform, then just be more accurate and make a bunch of similar cuts. Since it is round I would do a l 5 or 6 rectangle pieces.
Take your paint brush and smear on some mod podge. Since my fabric was pretty thick I put a lot on.
Stick on your fabric piece. Leave enough room when you cut it so that it can over lap on the top and the bottom. Mod podge the edges of the fabric so they stick.
Cut the bottom and top pieces so they can easily fit around the rounded bottom and top.
Mod podge the pot, then stick the fabric. Enforce it with more mod podge on top.
Continue to add more fabric pieces. I didn’t want to cover all the fabric in mod podge, so I just made sure I went over the edges with mod podge and nothing else.
Then you are DONE! And I am done saying Mod Podge ha ha. Woo hoo!
