And old margarine container and its lid teamed up with a wee spider plant that had outgrown its little pot. Together they got into the fabric stash and dressed themselves up in an old pair of jeans with the help of my trusty glue gun, found a sunny spot near a window, and nestled into a happy new life together.
This is a great spring project for kids old enough to use a glue gun; just choose some fabric, and start gluing it onto that old plastic container! Be sure to leave the bottom free of fabric to avoid staining, and poke a few holes for drainage. The lid makes a nice saucer to catch any runaway water.
