May 31, 2015: I like adding quick labels to items using magnets. But how do you use magnets with a clay pot? (Other than hot-gluing small magnets to the pot…a solution I’ve tried).
Today’s creative workaround for this dilemma is to wrap a decorative galvanized metal ribbon around the pot. I the spool of ribbon from Michaels (their Make Market line).
Here’s how I labeled the crassula succulent plant pot.
A DIY Shop tag labeled with a gold Sharpie marker (or paint pen) and attached with magnets.
I secured the metal ribbon with a binder clip. You can also use a hot glue gun to make a permanent bond.
This is a quick and easy way to to “magnetize” those clay pots for labeling. V-
