Valentine’s Day Flower Pot Cover – Free Pattern

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I wanted to share a simple little flower pot cover with you – in case you get potted plants (like me!) for Valentine’s Day! Each year I seem to get one small pot of miniature roses – which in the spring I add to my garden – I much prefer them to cut flowers! This pot cover would also work well for Mother’s Day.

I hope you are each spoiled with some beautiful roses this Valentine’s Day too!
