Hi everyone! It is one of my favorite days of the month! I am a long time Anthropologie fan. I could browse through the store for hours. Oh wait! I HAVE done that. It is so fun to see all the creativity in their displays. Sometimes, they are actually pieces of art. So after all my visits to Anthropologie, I am creating something with my purchases from Lowe’s.
I always see pots covered with drop cloth filled with gorgeous live plants. So, why not make my own right?
It’s easy and fun, so let’s get started.
While at Lowe’s I bought a 4×5 drop cloth and a 5 quart bucket.
To make your own Anthropologie Inspired Flower Pot, you will need:
low temperature hot glue gun
flowers or plant already in a pot
Measuring the width and circumference of the bucket, I cut a strip wide and long enough to cover my bucket TWO times. I did it twice because my drop cloth was thin and you could see the writing.
Using my hot glue gun, I glued the hemmed edge to the rim of the bucket. I pulled on the drop cloth tightly, but not too much.
After the rim was done, I was ready to work on the bottom. I carefully pleated the drop cloth as I hot glued it to the bottom. I was careful to keep the bottom level, so when I added my plant it wasn’t tilting to one side or the other.
I also liked it a little wrinkly. (That’s how the Anthropologie pots looked.) And I personally don’t like perfection. I like things a little messy.
For more interest, I tore a 2 inch wide strip of the drop cloth and tied it around the rim of my new Anthropologie Inspired Flower Pot.
I like the frayed edges of the strip around the rim, don’t you?
Sometimes adding a little chalkboard tag creates charm.
I hope you have been inspired to make your own Anthropologie Inspired Flower Pot.
Make it a great day!
