Home made lace plant pots

Hello rainy Wednesday!
Today I thought I'd show you how to make your own lace plant pots. It's super cute and adorable, it's very personal and it can also be used as a very nice gift for someone.

Yes, that's what you'll need. The lace I used was this fancy "lace tape" which I got for $2 at one of my favourite stores, Tigeren. Because of the sticky tape on the back of the lace, it was very easy to glue it onto the pots. But actually, lace tape is not a necessity for this; you can also use lace fabric and glue it on - carefully - with super glue. That also looks very cute, but it can be a little more difficult. So I'd suggest you try to find some lace tape or a lace string, and then glue it onto the pot.

If you weren't able to find lace tape, and you're doing this the ol' fashioned way, then I would suggest you try your way on a couple of old plant pots first. It's a bit difficult to get the lace glued on the pot in a straight line. So try and try again, because when you're finish, you'll love yourself for the time and effort you put into this.

If you do have lace tape, then this should be easy as pie. Just remember to take your time and make sure the line of the lace is somewhat straight.

And there you have it; a very personal and cute way of displaying your plants.
Oh and by the way; be careful not to spill water or dirt on the lace, since it'll take quite easily, and the lace is hard to take off the plant pots after you've glued it on.

Have a happy, happy day
