Hawaii Beach Cottage Tour

What is it about simplicity and Summer?  When you just need a swimsuit, a beach towel and a cool refreshing drink to get by.  For some reason it seems we need twice as much stuff for all the other seasons?  I’ve never understood it but rather choose to just enjoy the simple things of Summer while they last.  This Hawaii beach cottage on the island of Maui is just one of those things.  A simple stunner of a beach house that’s been carefully designed from an old carriage house, not to include more than one really needs.

I love the simple decor and openness of this space

At first glance this rustic dinning table seems like nothing more than a shifty old table, but at second glance I noticed the all natural legs and my heart went boom-boom

DIY No Sew Fabric Planters

I’ve been obsessed with shibori fabrics lately.  If you have shibori fabric in your home and have an Instagram, there’s a good chance I’m following you!  The varying shades of blue shibori fits right in with my turquoise home so I wanted to find a way to incorporate this latest trend.  I already have enough pillows (another obsession!) so I wanted to find another way to include this fabric.  I literally have dozens upon dozens of plants, so I figured, why not a planter?

DIY No Sew Fabric Planter - Shibori

I’m always looking for cute ways to dress up my plants.  I don’t own a sewing machine, so this was going to have to be a no sew fabric planter.  This DIY is incredibly easy!!  It doesn’t take much time or materials.  I always love a good DIY that doesn’t require too much effort on my part but has maximum impact!  I already had several plants on hand, as well as a pot and glue.  I just needed to head out to find some fabric.  I stopped by Joann Fabrics and fell in love with Ellen DeGeneres’ line of home fabrics!  I especially loved this shibori one, which I ended up taking home but there were many others that I had my eye on.

DIY No Sew Fabric Planter - Shibori

Materials:

  • clay pot (doesn’t necessarily have to be clay)
  • scissors
  • glue – make sure it’s waterproof when it dries
  • fabric
  • some form of a clamp (I used chip bag clips) or you can use another pot of the same size

DIY No Sew Fabric Planter - Shibori

Instructions:

You’ll want to start by measuring the circumference of your pot at the widest point as well as the length.  I added an additional 2 inches to both measurements.

Cut your fabric accordingly

Put a line of glue along the inside of the pot, about an inch down (see pic below)

place a line of glue on the inside of the pot, about an inch down

Now wrap your fabric loosely around the pot leaving an inch above the top of the pot to fold over and connect with the glue inside.

Take your clamps or if you couldn’t find anything to use for clamps, you can place another pot of the same size inside the pot you’re gluing.  This will hold the fabric in place while it dries.

Add some additional glue on the backside along the seam to keep things in place there as well.

Let your glue dry.  I used E6000 and let it dry for 24 hours.

Once your glue is dry, you can remove your clamps and pot your plant!  I tucked any remaining fabric loosely under the bottom of the pot.

*One thing I will warn you about (if you didn’t leave enough fabric for the length) when you go to tuck the fabric under the bottom of the pot, it will look boxy like the planter on the bottom right.  I preferred the loosely hanging fabric because it looked much more like the fabric planters I’d seen in nurseries.  Also you can always glue the fabric to the bottom of the pot if you don’t want to worry about having to rearrange it every time you move the plant.
