I occasionally order catalogs in the mail even though it is not kind to mother nature. One catalog that I do order is from Anthropologie. I loved the
colors, decor, and dresses. Who the heck am I kidding. I love everything in that store, however, I could never bring myself to spend over $100 on a pillow, $200 on a strip of wallpaper or $68 on a tiny clay pot! It's a good thing I am a crafty mama.
I found this color coil clay pot and loved the way it looked. My dinning room is Spanish themed with some modern flair so I thought this pot would go great! I ran (actually drove) as fast as I could to my local Michael's because last week I remembered seeing something on clearance in the Martha Stewart yarn collection that was perfect for this project. It was only $2.50. I got the clay pot and rocks from our local dollar store. The plant and soil were free courtesy of my backyard.
What you will need:
Martha Stewart super bulky "mambo" yarn- 1 roll was plenty
any cheap clay pot
5 glue sticks
Start at the top and run a bead of hot glue along a 1-2 inch section. Once the yarn is secure start gluing every few inches and wrap the yarn around the pot.
Tad Da! You are finished.
Find some soil, a cool plant, and some rocks and make your own arrangement.
Thanks for stopping by. Send me pictures of your great Anthro knock offs and I will feature them on my blog. Don't be shy, leave a comment and let me know you were here.
