So after my adventures with the mache letters I decided to do something with a bit more of a practical use. With my new desk I am looking for storage solutions and I had the bright idea to use a clear glass pot and decorate it to use it on my desk.
So in my recent HobbyCraft order I also purchased two large sheets of floral printed paper and some ribbons.
The floral sheets of paper were £1 each which I think is very reasonable for the size and the ribbons were reduced to 50p a roll. I think they were from their Easter stock, but to me they looked usable regardless of the season.
This project is again super easy but I think also effective. All I did was measure the height of the pot, but not including the neck of the pot if it had one. Then I cut out a strip of the coloured paper to that height and placed it inside the pot. And ta dah a decorated pot to your very own design!
I also finished tying some of the ribbon as a bow around the neck or lid to finish it off.
The great thing about this is you can use any design of paper/card you like to great a look that suits you or the recipient if you were to make this a gift.
The pots I used were one from Home Sense for £2.99, a Kilner pot from John Lewis for £2.50 and I also has a ribbed glass pot left from my wedding which I previously purchased as a set from BHS Home. Cost effective too!
I hope you liked this little project. A great one for a rainy afternoon with many practical implications!
