After spending something like $30.00 on gas alone, I think I'm almost done. Since you can't just call a store to ask if they have something anymore, this was a necessary evil. I miss the days when you could call a local store and actually talk to a real person to answer your questions. Oh well. Progress, right?
I had seen a tutorial at Confessions of a Plate Addict for using fabric and Mod-Podge when I was hit with the idea of just using some of the new Duck Tape patterns that are available. Hello. Finally, an original thought.
I bought two rolls of the Zebra print and one roll of the houndstooth print. One roll was enough to cover two of the Jack-O-Lanterns I was turning into planters, and two rolls was enough to cover two planters and one fake pumpkin, with some to spare.
The cost? Less than $8.00. Well, plus gas money. I don't feel that there is a huge need for pictures since this project is pretty much a self explanatory*no-brainer*.
However, I had to locate mums that were in either 4" or 2" pots in order to accommodate my new planters.
Since the pots still weren't tall enough, I added a brick to each pot, which is actually a good idea for when we have those awful 60 mph winds we're so famous for in West Texas. Right? Anchors.
I love the way they look, mixed in with the other decorations for fall. As we near Halloween, I'll slowly be adding other decorations I've acquired over the years. It looks to be a great Halloween!
I'm partying here:
