Upcycled Indigo Planters

"These gorgeous planters are made by repurposing tin cans and socks! Yes, old white socks that are dyed with indigo dye and Shibori tying techniques. The larger planter is actually made with an old cotton tube bandage. There is no-sewing with this repurposed craft. The wonderful patterns and designs on the plant covers are made by tying the upcycled cloth in a certain way before dyeing with indigo dye. This is a fun craft to do in the garden on a summer day."
