You guys! I haven”t really talked it about it yet, buy viagra mostly because it got all switched around and I was supposed to be starting it in April, viagra buy and here we are in October – but I am finally starting a little graphic design program at BCIT! I start this coming Tuesday, right after Thanksgiving! I am super pumped and I can’t wait to dive into the world of design and start making some sweet stuff to share with all of you! BUT enough about me…we are entering a long weekend and because it’s fall and rainy I thought I’d share a simple DIY woven planter that you can do indoors in an afternoon sometime between turkey dinners this weekend…we have three separate dinners to attend. I don’t eat turkey, but I LOVE brussel sprouts. Gimme all of them!
We all know how weaving is ALL the rage these days. I must admit, I’ve wanted to learn how to weave as I think you can create some pretty designs, plus it’s a cool skill, however, I ALSO don’t want to learn because I aint got time for that. Mostly I don’t have time because I can’t seem to organize my life these days – it seems as if everything takes up more time than anticipated. But yah, I can’t see myself learning the skill of weaving anytime soon. Since I like the look of the yarn weavings, this seriously easy DIY woven planter is a pretty close second to having a woven piece hanging up in my home. Let’s get to making!
Yarn & Cording, various colours and thickness
Hot glue gun
1 – Heat up the glue gun and pick out what kind of pattern you’d like to do, as well as what materials you’ll be using
2 – Measure out how long you’d like the hanging rope to be. It will depend on how tall your plant is as well as how low you’d like the pot to hang from the ceiling – if you’re not making a hanging planter, don’t worry about this part
3 – Start wrapping the yarn around the pot. I glued all the way around for each layer as I wanted to make sure it stayed in place
4 – Once you’ve wrapped a bit of the top of the pot with yarn, glue the hanging cord onto the sides of the pot. Then continue to wrap the yarn and cover up the bottom of the hanging cord as you go along
5 – Switch up the colour, the texture, or whatever style you’d like to do whenever you want! That’s the fun part, you get to make it suit your style
6 – After the pot has been fully covered, add little details. I added a couple of pom-poms (follow this tutorial here) and some simple stitches (this is where the embroidery needle will be used) to make it a bit more quirky. The colour pop is awesome! If you have any neon yarn, thread or parachute cord – use it!
The little details are so adorable. I love the thick yarn alongside the tightly wrapped rope and the bright colour of the pom-poms make it perfect for our home.
I am beyond smitten with this little thing! It’s so cute and I love how the bright yarn really pops against the soft, neutral tones. I am currently making two more of these to adorn my little home. They are so easy to make and create a warm and cozy house for your adored plants. You’ve got to make them this weekend friends! Even if this weekend isn’t your Thanksgiving, it’s the perfect stay inside all day with your cozies on kind of craft. Throw on some Gilmore Girls and drink your weight in coffee while wrapping your pots in their winter sweaters ;)
