Mother's Day Gift Idea - Jute Wrapped Flower Pots

I saw this lovely jute wrapped pot from Peppermint Plum and thought that it would make a great Mother's Day gift for my mom. I thought I would use this as my "pinspiration" to take it one step further.


I purchased three pots from Michaels at approximately $1.25 each.  Then I purchased jute twine from Lowes for about $2.50 for 190 feet.  A much better deal than Amazon who wanted around $6 dollars for 200 feet.


 I used hot glue to attach the jute at the start and then I started to wind it around. It was a quick process.  It probably took 10 minutes total to complete all three pots.


I had bought some chalkboard labels from Michaels in the $1 section a few months back. I had used the planter labels as food labels at a baby shower. I decided to take three of them off the stakes and use them to write out my parent's street address number.  I then attached the numbers to the pots.  I was excited that I found another use for these, and for $.75 total you can't beat the price.



I purchased this terra cotta colored tray from Amazon for approximately $5. I found one at the Dollar Tree I liked but it only held two pots, and I needed room for three pots. I knew I could get the tray pretty fast through Prime two day shipping. It came in less than 24 hours after ordering it.  Sidenote: I think my UPS man either loves me for all the business or hates me because of our long driveway (which he insists on walking up every time). 

I spray painted the tray using black spray paint made especially for plastic that I already had out in the garage from Lowes.  After the tray was dry I brought it in the house to check it out with the pots. They fit perfectly.






Flower Pots (Michaels) $4.00
Jute Twine (Lowes) $2.50
Tray (Amazon) $5.00
Plants (Lowes) $12.00
Soil - had from previous project
Chalkboard Labels - had from previous project


Total Cost $23.50




I think my mom will love to have this as a part of their porch this spring and summer.  Thank you for stopping by to check out this project.

  31. What's so great is the neutral tone of the twine with the color of the flowers and the numbered labels. Very appealing to the eye. I enjoyed seeing how you did this. I found this post at Hodgepodge Friday!
