What supplies do I need to make Fabric covered Pots?
How do I make Fabric covered Pots?
I bought six miniature terra cotta pots from my local Home Depot store. I first gave the bases a little spray paint action. First they got a coat of silver, which ended up not being the color I wanted. You can still see a faint silver tint to the bottom of the bases.
Then, I used my favorite Gold Foil Paint Pen and painted the rim in gold.
First I made a small mark on the pot. Then, I laid the pot on it’s side on a piece of blank paper. Make a mark on your paper where the “start point” on your pot is. Then slowly roll your pot along, marking on your paper the top and bottom of the pot.
Is this making sense at all? Sure sounds confusing, but you’re basically making a slightly curved template of your pot. Once you hit your original mark, cut out with scissors. This is your template for the fabric.
Then start to adhering the fabric to the pot. Just to make sure it all stayed in place, I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge to the fabric once on the pot as well.
Slightly fold your fabric over the top of the terra cotta pot and make sure it’s secure with the mod podge.
Note : there is a possibility of the fabric coming off if it becomes too damp from watering your plants. This is a great project for succulents, as they need minimal water. I have been watering mine for three weeks now and there has not been an issue.*
