1. Tear about a 4″ x 4″ piece of fabric. Frayed edges are good.

2. Wrap the pot and secure with twine. Don’t worry about it being perfect. Just be sure and cover the plastic pot.

4. Display in an old cigar box!

Tips:

Spray the plants with water so they look clean and fresh! Water the plants before you wrap them by dunking them in a bucket of water and letting them drip dry. If you are worried about the fabric getting wet, wrap a small piece of plastic or cellophane around the bottom of the plant before you wrap it in fabric.
