I am so excited to share with you this crochet plant pot cover pattern!
Its a super begginner friendly simple pattern that any one who know how to make single crochet can do. Although I used this as a plant pot cover there are lots of other options you can use it for. You can make a set of decorative nesting baskets using a wooden base set like this one for example! you can also work less or more rounds to decrease or increase its height. If you want you can just make your own base using a basic single crochet circle and control your base size as you wish. However if you want to use a wooden base I have linked some options for you bellow. Finally I used an artificial plant. But am planning to use a real one so if you want a real plant too you should get a pot with its saucer.
This pattern is part of bigger project that I have been preparing for a while. I am doing a room makeover on a budget using mainly crochet and some other DIYs!! I’am a big believer that our surrounding space affect our mood and productivity levels and I find my self more productive and happy when I have a place that is organized and looks pretty.
Also my room is the space where I work on my blog, sit down and chill, study, and even workout!! so basically If I don’t have a pilates class to teach or a family commitment I’ll be in my room (coz am an extremely introverted human being and I like it) :D. Hence I always want to add new things to my room, make it prettier and more functional that’s why I have created this room makeover series!!
