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 an Anthropologie Inspired Flower Pot.
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.
To make your own Anthropologie Inspired Flower Pot, you will need:
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. It certainly was easy enough and perfect for my new apartment porch.
Make it a great day!
