Flower Pot Wreath

I did my own version of a flower pot wreath this past weekend! You guys know how much I love all-things terra cotta and with spring just around the corner, I’m in the mood to do some new projects with terra cotta flower pots!

For my wreath, I used faux succulents because I knew I wanted to put it in a little nook in the kitchen that doesn’t get a lot of light! But you could just as easily tuck some live succulents into this sweet wreath if you hang it near a window or on a porch!

Here’s What You Need for a Terra Cotta Flower Pot Wreath

*Grapevine wreath- I used 14″

*four 4″ terra cotta pots

*Sixteen  2″ terra cotta pots (get one or two extra just in case you want to add some!)

*Paint for the adding patina to the pots (I use craft paint in white & green)

*Twine or heavy gage wire (I used both!)

*Moss

*Styrofoam

* Four Faux or real plants (depending on where the wreath will hang!)

*Burlap Ribbon for hanging wreath

I placed the 4 larger pots at the 12-3-6-9 positions on the wreath…wire these on first and place them so they can hold a plant-(in other words…don’t put them upside down!)

Play with the smaller pots to see where you think they look the best! I tried twine & wire to attach the pots to the wreath…both work great! Just feed the wire/twine through the hole in the pot and wrap through the wreath and tie off on the back…

Glue (with glue gun) Styrofoam into smaller pots that will be filled with moss…terra cotta wreath7

I added a bit of hot glue to keep the moss in (on the pots that weren’t sitting straight up)terra cotta wreath 8

Add the faux or the real plants (use Styrofoam & moss with the faux plants & hot glue to keep them in place)

Add a bit of hot glue between pots where they touch to make certain the don’t flop all over the place :)

    This is really a cute wreath, Robin! I can envision it hanging on a porch or patio area too. You must have a lot of patience because this wreath looks like it took a lot of that with a lot of creative thinking to make. Great job, my friend! xxoo

    So pretty Robin! Clever and cute and I am not surprised in the slightest to see this pop up in my reader and see it next to your name. Love to you friend-warms my heart to think of you crafting away!

    Watching your youtube right now. Fascinating! So glad you told us not to put them on all in a row. That’s what I’d have done. :( :( I really would have.

    I love this, Robin. Just took my Christmas grapevine wreath off the back of the house today. I’m serious.

      KathySue,
      Debbie’s wreath is gorgeous! If you google flower pot wreaths you’ll get to see ever so many done in lots of different ways, so if you decide to do one you’ll have lots of inspiration ! I’d love to see yours when you make one! xo

  1. […] The other day as I was wandering through Dollar Tree I noticed that the flower pots are back on the shelf, including their 3-packs of itty-bitty terra cotta pots. They're a bit on the small side for most plants, so what else can you do with them?  I think they would be perfect for making this fabulous wreath by Robin at All Things Heart & Home!  Adorn it with succulents to bring a low-maintenance bit of nature into your home, or tuck a few faux plants into the pots instead for a look that is maintenance-free.  [how to make a flower pot wreath] […]
