Inspired by the outdoors and a self-challenge, Amy from Mod Podge Rocks repurposes a duct cover/cap from The Home Depot into a planter with personality.

Step
Amy has been into walking through the aisles of The Home Depot and seeing what she can repurpose into a craft project. If you are looking for a weekend challenge, - it can be a really fun exercise. Inspired by the outdoors, she decided to make a planter from a very unusual supply.
Step
While wandering through the plumbing/HVAC section, she noticed the duct cover/cap and thought-That would make a great planter for my porch." She liked the low profile and she already had the perfect stuff on hand to make it over. She had no idea what to expect, but she absolutely loved the results. Here's how she did it.

Gather These Supplies:
 •   Duct cap - pick any size; Amy chose 12"
 •   Mod Podge Outdoor
 •   Spray paint or primer
 •   Fabric of your choice; Amy used scraps
 •   Paintbrush
 •   Ruler
 •   Craft knife and mat
 •   Scissors
 •   Pencil
 •   Bounty® paper towels
Step
First she spray painted her duct cap with primer. It took about five minutes - so easy.
Step
Then she prepared fabric with Outdoor Mod Podge. All she did was lay a strip of fabric out, spread a medium layer of Mod Podge on top and let it dry. This made it easier to cut without fraying (especially with a craft knife).
Step
Measure the fabric (she used 1 1/2") and then cut with the craft knife and a ruler.
Step
Mod Podge the strip of fabric to the duct cap - using Outdoor Mod Podge, of course! Give it several coats and let dry.
Step
Now it's time to plant. She bought these high sun plants from The Home Depot too.
Step
With any project there is always a mess - gardening and planting included. So she busted out the Bounty® paper towels to help clean up the mess. These paper towels are 2x thicker than normal paper towels - and they don't tear while using them.
Step
Step
The nice part is that while you are snagging your DIY supplies at The Home Depot, you can get the Bounty® paper towels there too. To see Amy's full tutorial visit Mod Podge Rocks.
