DIY: Chic Fabric Decoupage Flower Pots

As you may be aware, I think terracotta pots are a little dull. If you’re looking for another way to dress them up try covering them with fabric. I personally love a mix and match look— you can use leftover fabric scraps or have fun buying new to create these chic little pots. With so many options to customize, you can match your décor inside and out, just be sure to use outdoor finish decoupage!

  • Brush a section of the pot from top to bottom with decoupage medium, then place fabric on area and brush fabric with medium. Continue all the way around the pot. Let dry.
  • Trim extra fabric about 1-2” from top and bottom of pot. Take scissors and cut 1” slits in extra fabric at top and bottom of pot.
  • Brush inside of pot with decoupage medium then fold down fabric strips and brush with medium. Repeat on bottom of pot. Let dry.
  • If desired, use same technique to cover drip plate.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
