Modge Podge Poinsettia Pots


I love the way these little Modge Podge Poinsettia Pots came out. They were really easy, and I can use them all year with different types of flowers and plants. I also love the idea that I am making something out of trash.  I'm re purposing my cans, and I love the way they look.  

Now for the directions. 

Modge Podge Poinsettia Pots

Supplies

Modge Podge
2 28 oz empty cans
2 6 inch pieces of mesh cut to the size of the cans
2 3 inch pieces of wire edged ribbon for a bow about 2 feet each
1 foam brush or paint brush

Directions:

Use a paint brush or foam brush to brush modge podge on your can.


Then carefully wrap the mesh around the can painting mesh with the modge podge as you go, starting with one end and slowly working your way around the can until they overlap by about 1/2 inch.




Next brush the modge podge over the fabric all around the can, so that the fabric is totally covered in modge podge.


Set on a paper plate to dry over night.  

The next day fold the extra mesh at the top of the can to the inside of the can.


Next using a hot glue gun, glue one end of the ribbon to the can.  

Then  wrap the ribbon around the can and fold the ribbon under and glue the folded over end over the previously glued part of the ribbon.

Next I will show a picture for how to make the bow.



Fold the ribbon like above and then tie a 5 inch piece around the center of the folded pieces and twist in the back

Then use your hot glue gun to and dab the glue on the back of the can.  Then stick your bow into the glue so it stick to the can.



This is my table set with the Modge Podge Poinsettia Pots and my Rhinestone Jars.




I love the way this pot came out, and I hope that you like this cute Modge Podge Poinsettia Pot, also.  I always love hearing from you.

Have a great week and Merry Christmas.
