Fancying Up Basic Plant Pots

collage 3

I love house plants and think they can add so much life to a room.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a good track record with the kind that need water and attention.  As in, ones that are alive.  I tend to do better with the faux plant variety.  Luckily, Ikea has some great ones to choose from.  You can find them popping up all over my house. 

It’s really no surprise that I picked up two more to add to our nightstands (you can read about those HERE).  I like the way the look and they’re toddler and dog approved.  I decided not to put them inside a different, more decorative pot.  Rather, I hit up my craft closet for a few simple items that would add a little something to the basic black pots.

All you need is some ribbon or twine and a hot glue gun.  I chose gray pleated ribbon for one and just wrapped it once around the lip of the pot, hot gluing along the way.  For the second one, I used twine and tied it under the lip to secure it and then wrapped it down the pot.  I used a few dots of hot glue to hold the twine in place along the back.

Super simple and quick.  It’s nice to do those sorts of crafty projects every now and then.
