Update Your Terracotta Pots!

3 Materials
30 Minutes

Terracotta is beautiful on its own, but add some jute cord and a bow and you got something better!

Get a terracotta pot in any size you’d like! I’d recommend the smaller the pot the thinner the jute cord. The larger the pot, get the thicker jute cord. Make sure you have plenty of hot glue too!

Leave the jute cord on the spool.

Start by adding a small dab of glue to get started and apply the end of the jute cord immediately after and press until dry.

Add glue and press the jute cord in small sections and work your way around the pot. I used the trim as a guide.

Pull the jute cord tightly as you rotate the pot. But not to tight to unravel. On the next layer, just slightly push up the the second layer to keep it right by each other and make it look more seamless.

I added 4 rows of jute cord. Add as mans or few as you’d like!

I tied a bow and glued it where I started the jute cord. That way it’s more camouflaged.

glue down the ends of the bow to keep it from moving or looking slouchy.

Do this for both ends and top of the bow.

Plant your flowers or plants!
