How To Decorate Terracotta Pots Using Fabric

Decorating terracotta pots using fabric is very simple, cheap and rewarding. Beautifully patterned pots are usually quite pricey and fabric can really help get similar ones very cheap. Besides terracotta pots themselves and different fabrics you’ll also need Mod Podge and a brush.

To decorate one pot you need to cut a fabric to wrap once around it leaving extra room for folding it over on the top and bottom. After that you simply need to glue the fabric piece you got to the pot. You can also cover the fabric with Mod Podge afterwards to seal it. Such pot is perfect to use indoors but I won’t recommend to use it outdoors.

    What a neat idea. I was looking for something like this. I originally wanted to do fabric but I thought it wouldn’t work. Now i know it can. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Jen Says:

    Is there a seam? I don’t understand if u wrap from the bottom of the pot a go up or wrap around. Can you post a picture of the cut of fabric and what type of glue afixes it?

    […] 6. Seeds and cute pots Does your mother like flowers? There is a better way to give a woman flowers than buying a bouquet. I’ve always found the idea f cutting flowers as an indication of love very bizarre. Essentially, by cutting them, the flowers start dying. So since I was very young, I’ve been giving the people I love flower pots instead. For this mother, the perfect gift from me would probably be these DIY fabric dressed pots and some lovely seeds. If your mum is not much of a gardening person, you can buy a potted flower and plant it in your pot. Have a look at more detailed instructions if you need to, at Shelterness. […]
