Don’t throw out your hideous looking planters or vases, recycle them!!

I want you to see how an old planter (I was tempted to throw out, but  felt guilty doing so)  went from horrible looking to Absolutely FAB πŸ™‚ IMO πŸ™‚

I used my tarn and a nice #K/10 1/2-6.50mm hook and made enough stitches to go around the base of the planter, a tip here: please do not start at the bottom of the planter for obvious reasons like:  A- you want your planter to drain properly. B- no need to waste your tarn covering the bottom.

Then single crochet and close to form your circle around the base.  Then, you can go rogue on your next rows, practice any stitch, but try to do SC every other row, or 2 rows SC that way it covers all the vase.

Continue adding rows until you cover all of your vase/planter and if you still have enough tarn then you can slip stitch to cover even the mouth of your planter.

If you don’t have enough tarn, then you can finish where the yarn runs out.

Here are the visuals: 



Okay so I have a new app and I need to try it out πŸ™‚
