Flowerpot Food Covers

Summer is coming to a close for most areas of the country but for Texas the weather is just now bearable enough to go outside! I love this idea from Martha Stewart to use flower pots at food covers and trays, especially with the influx of insects we’ve had this year due to our mild winter. You could use a variety of sizes depending on the food you wanted to cover and these can easily be found at any store with a garden center (Walmart, Lowes, Calloways to name a few). I would paint the lids with chalkboard paint so that you could write on the outside what was underneath, like “cheese” or “hummus”.

To create your own flower pot cover, Martha says, “Create a handle by cutting an 18-inch length of 1/4-inch cord and knotting the ends together. Thread the looped end through the drain hole in the flowerpot.”

Very clever Martha!
