Shabby Chic Peat Pot Decorations, Party Favors, Treat Cups

Tutorial for Shabby Chic Peat Pots

Welcome back everyone! I saw some pins on Pinterest with peat pots that people decorated with flowers, twine, and other pretty things so I went to my favorite place, Home Depot, and purchased 15 peat pots for under 2 bucks! What a bargain! Here is what I did with them.

First I painted them with home made chalk paint, then stamped them with my french rubber stamps in sepia tone ink.

 Next I added some lace around the top, I used a glue gun for this step.

Next I just added whatever stuck my fancy. I used some Iamroses Gardenias (love those), some more ribbon, yarn, fabric pieces and of course cheesecloth.

And that was about it. This is a super easy project and if you mess a few up they are only a few cents per pot so no big deal to throw one away and start over : )
