Patterned Pots

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Give last years pots a great textile make-over and it's easy too! All you need is a couple of terracotta pots, Mod Podge, a brush, and a couple of fabrics.


  1. Cut a length of fabric that is large enough to wrap around your pot
  2. Cut slits in the fabric around the top to allow the fabric to lay smoothly.
  3. Begin applying your fabric by coating a small section of the pot with Mod Podge and stick the fabric edge to the pot. Once it is pressed flat and in place, coat that section with Mod Podge.
  4. Continue this process around the pot, ignoring the top and bottom of the pot. 
  5. Once the outside is complete, trim the top and bottom fabric edges to extend 1" outside of the pot.
  6. Starting at the top, fold the fabric into the pot in pleats so that it lays nice and flat around the rim. Coat in Mod Podge. 
  7. Repeat this step for the bottom making sure that your pleats lay smooth so the bottom of your pot remains level. 
  8. Give the pot one final coat, and make sure any loose flaps are coated.
  9. Allow your pot to dry.
 * Recommended for indoor use only as rain will wash away the Mod Podge.
