There is almost nothing I love more than having flowers in my house. Over the years I’ve bought and/or made countless vases and flower pots, but somehow I’m always finding new ideas I want to test out.
Over the holidays I decided I needed some more Christmas-y flower pot decor, so I threw this DIY together. I wanted something cute, but not too time consuming or extravagant to where I would regret only being able to use them a couple months out of the year. Of course you can do this with any color fabric and use them year-round, so it’s a great one to have in your DIY arsenal.
What you’ll need:
- Basic flower pot
- Fabric scissors
- Glue gun
I will say, this is a cut-as-you-go project. I did absolutely zero measuring of fabric beforehand—trying to glue fabric around a curved surface can be a bit tricky, and I’ve always found that letting it do what it’s going to do and working with it is the best way to go. With that being said, I did find it was easiest to start by gluing the fabric below the rim of the pot.
Keep going all the way around, making sure to pull the fabric tight. The nice thing about a flower pot is you can basically just tuck all the excess fabric inside, and no one will ever see it!
Once you’ve glued the fabric all the way around, cut the extra from the top and tuck in/glue the excess to the inside of the pot. Now flip the pot over, cut off the excess fabric on the bottom, and glue it all down.
Flip it over and voila!
It really doesn’t need to look perfect on top, because once you put flowers in, any bumps will be covered up. Just look how cute the finished product is!
