Step by step: How to make your own jute flower pot
Cut the jute to size
Wrap the jute around your plastic planter and cut it to size.
Leave some space
Leave some fabric at the top and bottom to fold over later.
Take the hot glue
Draw a straight line on the pot and tape the beginning of your jute there.
Glue the edge
Spread the glue on the edge and roll it along 2 cm from the edge of your fabric.
Wrap the jute around the pot
Glue the jute back to the starting point.
Tighten the jute
If your pot is narrower under, you need to glue two small darts.
Glue the inner edge
Wrap the seam allowance around your edge and tape it in place.
Glue the floor
Glue the fabric to the floor as well. Spread it evenly so that it does not wobble afterwards.
Take your jute yarn
Wrap the yarn around your pot and make a nice bow.
Paint the bottom edge
Paint the bottom edge with the acrylic paint. Let it dry and your jute flower pot is ready.
Bathrooms are usually cut quite small. To have a great scent in this room and avoid stench, drip a few drops of essential oil in the middle of your toilet paper rolls. Every time someone takes some toilet paper, the scent of the oil will spread around the room. By the way, this trick works not only with the toilet paper roll, but also with your kitchen roll.
