How To Make
It’s simple to make, upcycling an old cooking pot into a farmhouse pot holder will be your fun afternoon. It’s easy to make and the result is gorgeous, so of course it’s fun! So, let’s just go to the step by step part on how to make my DIY Farmhouse Upcycled Pot Holder :
1 .My cooking was a single handle cooking pot. I got help from my husband to take the handle off. After that, clean and dry the cooking pot. My pot has some apple paintings on it that I was dying to get rid off. So, I painted the apple paintings with white acrylic paint. Also the defected area of the pot handle. Leave it to dry.
2 .Now, spray paint the enamel pot, concentrated on the painted area, so it will look smoother and even. Let it dry.
3 .The pot holder is almost finished, with a smooth white look, the pot is ready for some more make over. Take your small brush and paint the pot’s mouth with dark blue paint. Leave it until dry.
4 .Grab a jute rope and tie the enamel pot and end it with a bow.
5 . Last thing to do is to put more character to the -almost finish- farmhouse pot holder, a word of “garden”. Write it with the black marker. And you’re done!
