Book Page Pot

I've decided to change some of the accesories and colors of my living room so I needed to replace the brown and blue bowl that held the remotes and stuff on our coffee table.  I had some extra book pages from the wreath that is hanging in the room and I wanted to use them as well as connect the wreath to something else in the room so I made a book page pot!

What you'll need:
1.An old pot or vase: I bought this one from walmart. It once had an orchid in it...this chic doesn't have much of a green thumb so that didn't last long.

2. Foam Brush and Mod Podge
I haven't used this stuff since college...used to use it ALL the time. I forgot how much I love it!

3. Strips of book pages. I had already cut mine when making the wreath because the original pages were too big. But you could just take the pages and cut about 1 inch strips. I then cut them in half to make them go around the vase better.

How I did it:
(I'm sure you could figure it out, but here's a few pics and steps just in case.)
1. Put the mod podge directly on the pot and lay the strip on top.
2. Flatten it out as best you can and get out any air bubbles.
3. Just keep adding. I didn't use any kind of system or pattern.
4. Once you've covered the whole thing add another layer or two of mod podge and voila!, you're done!

What do you think?

  1. Seeing this pot and the modpodge reminded me of my Chocolate bowl that was so difficult to make, but that I LOVE so much.
