  1. Cut a length of fabric that will wrap once around your pot. Leave extra room for folding it over the top and bottom. Cut slits in your fabric around the top to avoid puckering.
  2. Coat a section of the pot with Mod Podge and stick the beginning of your fabric to the pot, coating the fabric as well. Do this all the way around and trim the fabric less than an inch so it hangs over the top and bottom.
  3. Fold the fabric at the top and bottom in pleats and coat it with Mod Podge. Let it dry and… voila!

BDB Tip: For indoor use only! If these get wet the glue will most likely wash off!

    I love these! Do you think there’s any way to waterproof these so they would be suitable for outdoor use?

    would outdoor mod podge allow these adorable pots to be outside under a porch roof? maybe apply a coat of clear sealer? I love these, they are so cute!!

    I made Polaroid looking coasters with modpodge and sealed them with clear automotive sealer. Maybe you can try to make this and put many thin even coats of the auto sealer on the inside and out.

    Will this work on plastic pots?

      I think you would need to use a glue that can glue plastic and it should be able to work the same! Try to make sure the pots don’t get wet, and it should hold up beautifully.

    i think Thompson makes a spray that’s 4$ for terra cotta pots inside and a fabric spray for the outside, to seal it .
