These are great gifts for Mother's Day or just a nice added home decor piece and a great way to upcycle old clothing that otherwise might end up in the garbage.
Mason Jar Flower Pot - Home Decor
This fun mason jar flower pot is an easy DIY project to make and will look lovely in your home. Use them as a table centerpiece or put them on your porch. Wherever you decide to display them, people will be asking how you made them - trust me!
- Old shirt to upcycle
- Standard or large mason jar
- Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
- Ruler or measuring tape
- Mod podge
- Foam brush
- A stick - a few inches taller than the jar
Using your scissors or rotary cutter and ruler, cut the shirt into strips.
For a standard mason jar, you'll need strips about 7 inches long and 1 inch wide.
We used about 15 strips for this project.
Apply Mod Podge to the inside of the jar (or directly to the strips of shirt) with your foam brush and glue the strips onto the inside surface of the jar.
Use the stick to work the fabric down in and to the bottom of the jar.
Repeat this process until each jar has fabric wrapped around the entire inside.
Trim the excess fabric hanging out around the rim if necessary.
When you finish adding fabric, apply a coat of Mod Podge over all of the fabric to seal it.
After the Mod Podge is dry, add soil and plants or flowers.
Alternatively, you can add faux flowers for a long lasting presentation!
