Virtual Refrigerator-- Fabric Covered Pots

Thanks for stopping by and joining us again this week as we host another virtual refrigerator arts and crafts link up.

Alec and I made some fabric covered terracotta pots last week. 

We found some cute fabric scraps at the craft store and rolled our pots out on them getting the basic shape we needed to cut.  We cut out all three fabrics while we had the scissors out. 

 We made sure our fabric pieces fit and then began slowly coating the pots with some waterproof Modge Podge that said it was "for all materials."

After we coated an area of the pot with Modge Podge we would pull the fabric tight over it and add another layer of Modge Podge on top of the fabirc; sealing it to the pot.

We tried really hard to make sure we kept it wrinkle free.

Once we had all the sides done we turned the pots upside down and coated the bottom of the pots with the Modge Podge before folding the fabric down around the edges, snipping any pieces of fabric we needed to with scissors to make sure it would lie flat.

We turned the post right side up and folded the fabric around the top rim of the pot again applying Modge Podge under and over the fabric.

We set our pots aside to dry for a couple of days and then filled them with some dirt and transferred some of our tickle plants into them.

Now without further ado I invite you to grab a "magnet" and link up your arts and crafts posts below and visit some other bloggers to see what they shared on their refrigerators.

Your art project doesn't need to be a stand alone post, nor does it need to be a tutorial.  We love day in the life posts or homeschooling wrap- ups that show art work too!  

So what do you have to share with us?
