Craft Your Own Super Cute Custom Flower Pots


I love cute flower pots but they usually cost an arm and a leg!  I also like to make things match and look cute (I’m neurotic like that).  So, when I saw all the cute flower pots on Pinterest, I had to try craft some up for myself.

What You’ll Need to Make Your Own:

  • Flower Pot(s) – I got mine on CLEARANCE at Walmart!! (You can use some you’ve got laying around the garage/house too! Tera Cotta, ceramic – whatever you’ve got or can find cheap!)
  • Fabric – about 1/2 yard (this will depend on the size of your pots of course) – There are lots of cute spring prints right now in the Walmart Fabric department!
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Flowers

First, wipe off or clean your pot if needed.  You’ll want to start with a clean flower pot. Paint a small section of the flower pot with Modge Podge and start wrapping the fabric around the flower pot.  Leave about 1/2 inch to an inch hanging over the top of the pot and the rest hanging off the bottom.  Continue gluing and wrapping until the pot is covered all the way around.

Trim the fabric so that you have about an inch hanging past the top of the flower pot.  Glue this part down inside the flower pot using the Modge Podge.  Pleat the fabric as you go around to make it lay flat.  Paint a layer of Modge Podge over the outside of the pot to seal it and allow it to dry.

Once this part is dry, flip the flower pot over and trim the bottom of the fabric so that you have an inch or so to glue down.  Use the Modge Podge to glue the fabric to the bottom of the pot and then paint another thin layer over it to seal it.  (Pleat the fabric as needed like stated for gluing the top down).

Allow the bottom to dry.  Then, fill the finished flower pot with your favorite flowers!

These flower pots will do better on a covered porch or in doors.  Do not allow them to sit in the rain as the Modge Podge will likely wash off and the fabric will come loose.

  1. I love the look of these! But, doesn’t the fabric wrinkle a bit as you taper down?

    • Denisesawyer says:

      If you try to keep it going straight, yes. But I let the fabric flow like it wanted to and it stayed smooth but the fabric goes on in like a diagonal direction so it uses a bit more fabric. It is hard to explain, but just keep going in the natural direction and smoothing as you go.
      Good luck!

  2. If you use the outdoor Mod Podge and use a waterproof sealer afterwards then you can have it out from under cover. Note: The outdoor mod podge is really thick and tend to stay tacky until sealed with a sealer, varnish, etc. But it does stand up pretty well in the outdoor elements.

  3. Soooo cute!! And I am a modge podge queen, haha.. I use that stuff on everything!
