Hi Buddies πŸ™‚

Advance Happy Pongal ! How have you been doing ? Its been long time since I wrote sorry for my laziness. Bare with me I will try to put in more efforts. To catch up we will start with a simplest DIY project I made recently. Its actually not a big project just a tiny piece made to beautify by peep out window πŸ™‚ I have this attraction towards growing plants and I like to spend time with them but due to space constraint I hardly grow any plants except for the money plant (Ivy) I have been growing in water kept in pet bottle since I didn’t have any pretty shaped glass bottles to accommodate my plants. I have this tiny money plant on my peep out window in my bedroom. But slowly the water forms algae in them,even if I change the water often I still face this problem. Sometimes it feels so gross and I thought of covering it up with something. Thats the story behind this cute DIY craft.burlap rustic planter

I always love to make something out burlap cloth or burlap thread. Because burlap gives a rustic look and feel I like the texture and finish of things made with them. It looks more natural also, Since this is related to nature plants and all I thought of using the left over burlap thread I had. So this is how I made it

Supplies Required:

  • Empty Cookie carton (or any carton)
  • Burlap thread
  • Craft Glue
  • Scissors

My Method :

  1. My plan was to use carton to cover up the ugly pet bottle with a cookie carton. Like I can place the bottle inside this carton and decorate the carton with some nice things and cover up the gross that was the actual plan
  2. This burlap turned out to be the nice decoration I chose πŸ˜›
  3. So first clean the cookie carton then take a craft knife and scratch Β the shiny cover so that it sticks well to the burlapwind it closely
  4. Then slowly apply craft glue and stick the burlap thread wind it without space around the carton
  5. Thats it we are done !Burlap Planter
  6. Now the pretty rustic natural planter ready. I inserted the ugly algae pet bottle inside this planter and covered it up πŸ™‚

Happy crafting
