At Creative Green Living, we are all about recycled crafts! This week, with the help of my friends Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts and Angie of The Country Chic Cottage I'm going to bring you a new recycled craft that you can make in 15 minutes or less each day PLUS feature 6-10 other recycled crafts. Its a veritable recycled crafting extravaganza!
My craft for today is a cute, giftable planter. It's an easy way to dress up a 4 inch pot to make it 10 times more adorable and ready for gift giving.
- Clean and empty 28 ounce (or larger) can
- Wide burlap ribbon that is as wide or wider than the can
- Baker's twine
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Plastic spoon or chopstick to help with gluing
Step 1: Cut
Cut the burlap ribbon long enough to wrap around the can with overlap. Trim the width as well if needed.
Step 2: Glue
Use hot glue to secure the ribbon around the can. Use a chopstick or a plastic spoon to help so you don't burn your fingers!
Step 3: Wrap
Wrap a length of baker's twine around the can several times as an embellishment.
Step 4: Plant
Transfer a plant from a small pot into the can. Now it's ready for gift giving!
