And that is the 1, 2 3 of adding fabric to an old terra cotta pot with mod podge.


I apply the mod podge in sections as I go.

I then wrapped the fabric, painted over the fabric with the mod podge and smoothed it out with my finger and brush as I went along.

That’s it, not much more detail to share on that.

Dried nicely and it compliments the kitchen decor.

    Very sweet! I love this idea so much and will definitely be using it in the near future. You’ve now shown me one more thing to do with my fabric remenants. Yay! I also am in love with your faux lemon plant. I really want that!

    Well, you might know that I am all about the mod podge. I have actually only used fabric one time before. I have starched with fabric, but I usually stick to paper, the thinner the better, for mod podge. I really love the look of these so now I want to head to my fabric stash take an inventory.

    I have no clue as to the plant. I’m super stupid when it comes to plants. I could probably tell you how to kill it, though.

    That is an adorable way to decorate pots. I’ve been working on a few pots myself. I will be posting them this week. I think they are going to be a big hit.

    Love, love, love it Debbie! When I mod podge, I use Elmers Glue All. I water it down a little. It works great and is usually less expensive than Mod Podge.

      Yeah, a dwarf scheffleria. Pretty. And I love the idea of fabric on a pot. I’m going to see what else I can mod podge it onto.

    This is such a cute idea I love the plaid and the piping. The color is also one of my favorite combinations. Very cute and well done!

    That is pretty sweet there Debbiedoo! I’ve used fabric before on pots and I love them…..they really dress up the inside of a home and the choices of using cordinating fabrics with the rest of your decor is limitless! Love yours!

    LOL…gone gingham style! That’s a good one. Love the look of the mod podged pot. It looks great with your tablescape. And those roosters do look like they’re getting after it.

    You’re creativity and talent is an inspiration!

  11. says

    Thanks, Debbiedoo–that is adorable and I am going to try it for my Christmas succulent pots. Now…how did you “finish” off the bottom of the pots? Did you cut the fabric at the bottom or cover the bottom and make the hole?
