ScrapHappy February 2021

Darling is a small town a couple of hours from Cape Town. Isn’t it a fabulous name? More info here. There is a dairy farm out there and one of its products is a really excellent plain yoghurt (the only kind I like). Seems a pity to keep sending all the empty plastic containers to the recycling guys when I could do with a few more plant pots…

I found this tutorial and got my hands messy with a small piece of leftover fabric and a bit of glue and water. It dried overnight and is now home to my prayer plant. There’s a 100% chance that I’ll be making quite a few more – I should have made the cuts in the fabric closer together for a more fitted shape, but I’m still happy with this one.

Lots of other people also post for Kate and Gun’s ScrapHappy initiative. Always so much inspiration out there, I love it!

    That’s inspired! I only use my yoghurt and icecream containers for freezing home made soup and sauce, but with a bit of pretty, they can make my plants look so much better!

      I hope it’s happy! I’d only just bought it, from someone local via my favourite facebook page, House Plant Lovers of South Africa. She propagates a few plants at a time and, when the rooted cuttings are well established, puts them up for sale. My neighbour had given me a rooted cutting of a maranta a few months ago but it failed to launch, so I considered this purchase an Absolute Necessity. I take it very personally when a plant dies on me :(
