It's been so warm and sunny this past week. The leaves are starting to bud and it's put me in the mood to get the flower pots out and the garden going.
But at this time of year I know the warmth won't last and it's still too early to put most plants outside. So I did the next best thing... this weekend I cleaned out the flower beds and started a garden related craft project.
I started by painted a clay pot a creamy yellow. I wanted to somehow give this a spring basket look. But I was totally unsure about how I was going to make that happen.
I tried gluing some of my favorite green and teal ribbons all around the bottom.
And after some experimenting came up with this...
weaving jute through the ribbon.
You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see how it turns out... I have a lot of weaving to do between now and then. If it turns out well I'll post the step by step.
