I always run into the same problem with my bigger plants! When it comes time to repot them the pretty pots are so expensive. Seeing as we're on a tight budget I decided to give this a try with some DIY planter covers.
Grab Some Placemats for This Decor Hack!
You'll only need 10 minutes to transform those ugly planters with placemats.
Prepping the placemats!
I got these placemats at peir one imports. They were only $3 each. Since one placemat wasn't enough to wrap around my planter I had to use two and combine them together.
I left the tassels on one side for decor but, the areas where I need to connect the two place mats together I cut them off. To connect my placemats together I used some floral wire. If you're confused I share the video version + more photos on the blog- https://www.lilyardor.com/ugly-pot-hack/
Now to make this work you'll need some velcro. I actually bought some velcro tape at joanns but the tape was so weak I ended up hot gluing the velcro pieces to the ends of the placemat. That's it! Just wrap it around the planter and secure it with the velcro. Super easy right? :)
I love the how the tassels look on the seem. :) This only cost my $7 to make. So much better than paying $50 for a new pot that's heavy and I can't move around much. I love taking my plants outdoors sometimes when I water them. So these plastic pots underneath make it pretty convenient.
That it! Thanks so much for tunning in! I hope this inspires you to recycle some placemats into homedecor!
