Picnic Pots

When eating outdoors, it is best to protect food from annoying flies with some sort of food cover. By attaching a drawer pull to the bottom of a terracotta pot, I created a unique food cover of my own.

I got my pulls in a sale bin at Anthropologie for a few dollars, but you can find great looking knobs anywhere – search resale shops, Home Depot or Target.

Just insert draw pull into your pot's drainage hole, add a washer and close tightly with a nut.

I picked up my pots at Home Depot.

    Thanks! You can also insert a drawer pull into the bottom of a small basket to create a food cover.
