Spice Up My Shrubbery

Announcement: I officially have a green thumb :) Okay maybe not quite yet, but I did plant some flowers in a pot a few weeks ago and they are GROWING! I haven't killed them yet!

Speaking of pots and plants, I came across this V and Co. tutorial for decorating your basic pottery with jute. What the heck is jute, you might ask? I did. Apparently, jute is a type of plant fiber used to make common items such as rope, twine, chair coverings, curtains, sacks, hessian cloth, carpets, and even the backing used on linoleum. It resembles hemp to me, and I suppose you could use hemp as well for this project. I really liked the polka dots. What a happy centerpiece!
