Diy Terracota Pot Wrapped in Twine

4 Materials
30 Minutes

Hey everybody! I wanted to show you a super easy and adorable way to take your plain terra cotta flowerpots from drab to fab using just a few things you probably already have on hand!

I was so ready to get a few things on my springtime porch that when I saw these shelves of terra cotta pots at Hobby Lobby, I knew I wanted to use some in my decorations! I absolutely love how greenery adds a pop of clean color to whatever my current theme is. But I needed to make that terra cotta a little more “me!”

For this project all you need is:

Terra cotta pot in the size you like

Glue gun

Jute twine

Acrylic paint


I just squeezed a little hot glue on the very bottom of the flowerpot and started wrapping the twine around the pot. SOOOO EASY!

I just kept wrapping and gluing the twine all the way up the flowerpot, and I did my best to keep all the rows straight. It’s pretty easy to do if you get your first couple of rows lined up! Then you’re just building the rows, each one above the

next, till you get all the way to the top!

Once I had the flowerpot covered in the jute twine, I wanted to add some color! As y’all know, if I’m adding color, it’s usually going to be my FAVORITE one! This time I picked Deco Art Americana acrylic paint in Sweet Mint. It’s such a beautiful color! I started painting the twine, and since I was able to keep my rows fairly straight, I was able to use the twine as a guide to paint too! You can paint as much as you want, but I kept mine toward the bottom of the pot for just a pop of color.

All I needed to do now was fill that pretty pot full of my favorite mix of greenery and find the perfect place for it on my porch! This super quick makeover changed this bland pot’s entire look! We took this plain terra cotta pot and made it a trendy new springtime piece that will transition right into summer!

Thank y’all so much for spending some time with me today! I’ll be back soon with more fun ideas. Until then, I hope you’re gearing up for springtime and sunshine and all the fabulous things! See you soon!

    There is a spray sealer for clay pots you can get at Michael's or Walmart. Seal the inside of the pot to stop moisture seepage that will make the twine moldy and eventually fall off.
