Pretty Pots

Pretty PotsThis might be my favorite craft so far, and I got the idea after seeing one too many beautifully patterned pots that were just out of my price range! Nothing a little Mod Podge and pretty fabric can’t fix! The total cost of this project was about $3 a pot.Fabric for pots Materials:
Terracotta pots
Mod Podge
Brush
FabricInside view This works better in description form, rather than step-by-step: Start by cutting a length of fabric that will wrap once around your pot. Leave extra room for folding it over on the top and bottom. Cut slits in the fabric around the top, to avoid puckering as you make your way around. Begin by coating a small section of the pot with Mod Podge. Stick the beginning of your fabric length to the pot and once it is in place, coat the fabric with Mod Podge. Continue doing this all the way around, without worrying about the top or bottom of the pot. When the outside of the pot is finished, trim your fabric so that less than an inch hangs over the top and bottom. Begin at the top, folding the fabric into the pot in pleats so that it lays nice and flat around the rim. Coat in Mod Podge. Do the same for the bottom, folding the fabric in pleats so that the bottom edge of the pot remains smooth. Coat any loose flaps of fabric with Mod Podge. Now let your pot dry. Pretty PotsI would avoid using these pots outside, because if they get wet, the glue will most likely wash off! But packaged with some seeds and cute gardening gloves, these would be an adorable Valentine’s Day gift!

    You can use these to plant in if you spray them with a coat or two of clear paint inside and out to seal the terracotta and fabric. Left in the sun they will fade though.

    wondering if this will work with terra cotta pots? Worried when I water the plants if the moisture from the inside will ruin the glue and fabric on the outside?…

      I would suggest spraying the inside of your pots will a sealer, then you won’t have to worry about it soaking thru 🙂
