Get your craft on: Fabric covered flower pot

Not willing to let ModPodge get the best of me (ahem), I tried another glue project recently.  Inspired by this tutorial, I bought a paper flower pot and decided to make a little pencil holder for Wavey.

I don't really need to go step-by-step here other than stating the obvious that I used MP to glue the fabric to the pot.  So easy that even I can do it.

You'd be proud that I even notched the fabric that folds in before gluing it all down.  A feat of crafting patience for me:

Here is a do-as-I-say/not-as-I-do moment:  See that big blob of MP?  I should have smoothed that out.

And the final product!

Look how excited Dora is for me!

PS: Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Good Gravy! Giveaway.  Entering is easier than washing MP out of your wedding ring.  Trust me on this one.

So cute! I've had a fear of mod podge for a while now. I guess it's just my ignorance getting in the way. Maybe I'll have to give this a try!

Thanks, everyone! I used the "outdoor-use" MP for this one and I regret it. Waaay to thick. It was really stinky and left a weird texture to it. Stick with the regular MP!
