DIY Fabric Covered Flower Pots

5 Materials

Are you feeling the need to get some green going? I am feeling like I need to see some new growth and some warm weather. The next best thing for me is to “make it”! So these adorable DIY Fabric Covered Flower Pots were born!

Click over to my blog post to see the video tutorial!

Gather Your Supplies:

  • Terra Cotta Pots
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • 1″ X 3″ fabric strips (I cut 1/8 yard), quilting cotton works great!
  • Foam Brush
  • Small Bowl


Brush a layer of Mod Podge along the top edge of your pots, overlapping to the inside of the pot about 1″, and dropping about 1″ below the outside edge. Add fabric strips on top of the Mod Podge. Applying fabric to 3″ sections works well.


Working horizontally, brush on Mod Podge and add the fabric strips around the bottom part of the pot.


Apply Mod Podge all over the outside of the pot. Don’t be sparing here, but be sure to wipe away drips. Let the pot dry for 24 hours.

And you are done!

Make a few of these for an adorable set to place in a windowsill. This project is perfect for a girl’s craft night: not only is it simple, but it is also inexpensive to make!

Happy DIYing, Friends!

    Hi I have never used Mod Podge before. My question is when you do something like this using it,, which I like,, How well will it stand up to use ?

    This works great with tissue paper also. Cut or tear tissue paper into pieces. Apply Modge Podge to pot in small areas and apply tissue paper pieces. I personally prefer torn pieces vs. cut pieces.
