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!

  • Cut a piece of fabric large enough to wrap around flower pot once with about 2” of extra fabric at the top and bottom of pot.
  • 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.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️

This photo was taken the day my mom brought me back to the US from Panama, where I was born. She had jet-black hair and a tan, whereas I was basically translucent, with white hair and big blue eyes. Security guards stopped her in the airport because they thought she was smuggling someone else’s baby out of the country. So, I guess it’s time for everyone to come clean. I was indeed stolen. I am actually a Norwegian prince. Where’s my 👑, Terri?!?! Where. Is. My. #%^*ing. 👑?!? 🤪 Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you. Sorry I’m so weird. ❤️
