Easy Fabric Flower Pot

I like terra cotta pots as much as the next farm girl, but they can tend to be a little on the boring side some times. And sure, there are a million and one ways to paint a pot to give it some pizzazz, but why not think “outside the box” when it comes to you pots?!?! Check out the Fabric Flower Pot! These are so easy to make, that you could turn out a ton of them in just one afternoon!!

Now I know a lot of crafters out there swear by a product call Mod Podge, and while you could use it for this project, honestly, you can make your own version of it at home with just some white glue and a little water. Seriously! Just add water to some white glue in a jar. You want the glue to loosen up and be more of a white wash then glue.

So to pull off one of these beautiful fabric pots you are going to need:

A terra cotta pot
Fabric
Scissors
Paint brush
Mod Podge (or homemade knock off)

When it comes to choosing a fabric for your pot, you can go buy some to fit a theme, or you can use what you have on hand. I used some scrap from a quit I have started. Don’t want to spend money or don’t have any cloth on hand? No problem! You can use things like t-shirts, old dresses, or an old blouse! Recycling is a good thing!

Start by making sure your cloth is big enough to cover your pot. I rolled my pot diagonally across the fabric to ensure a nice even application. Start by putting some of your glue mix on the pot and secure the edge. Give it a minute to attach well and then begin covering the pot in sections with the glue mix and smoothing the fabric down. You will want to work in sections because terra cotta sucks up wet things…. paint, glue, water. You don’t want your glue mix to soak in before you get the fabric down!

Once you have the fabric wrapped and glued down on your pot it is time to make the top and bottom look neat. I cut my excess fabric away (kind of like when you wrap a present and there is too much hanging off an end.) Next you are going to make cuts along the fabric (not all the way down to the pot) so that the fabric tabs will fold over nicely.

Make sure you brush the glue all over the bottom and the rim/inside, so the fabric will attach. Now it is time to get crazy and cover the whole thing on the outside with your glue mix. This will help not only attach the cloth to the pot more securely, but as the glue dries, it will make the fabric more weather resistant!

How cute would these look on your kitchen windowsill with herbs in them?!?! Not a plant type of person? Just like to craft? Well why not make some up to organize your desk with a personalized touch? They would be great for holding craft supplies or anything else you need to stash away. These would also be a great teacher gift as a pencil holder!
