even clay pots need a makeover.

Category: DIY | November 12th, 2009


I was given this gorgeous dendrobium orchid (from one of my sister -in-laws and her family) and I just love it. I have been wanting one for awhile, and now I can look at it everyday! this beauty came with a regular clay pot as its home, but I thought this plant is too fabulous to not have a fabulous home. soooo I gathered up some yarn (I knew it would come in handy), magical hot glue gun, and about 10 minutes. BAM…makeover.

yarn to the rescue!!! I got this idea over at Craftzine. it is so easy and fun. I started from the bottom (secured with glue) and worked my way up. I didn’t even mean to, but these colors are perfect for the fall!
