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!
First I started with terra cotta pots that I painted to look aged (I tell you about that HERE)
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!)
* 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…
I added a bit of hot glue to keep the moss in (on the pots that weren’t sitting straight up)
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
Ohhhh I love it! Add a bit of burlap ribbon for hanging or a strong wire…
My little wreath is bringing a little springtime to a space between m breakfast area and my kitchen…it absolutely makes me happy every time I see it!
If you make one, I’d love love love to see your take on this! If you can shoot me a photo I’d love to put it in this post!
And for those of you who like your creativity in video form…here’s the video tutorial!
Sending love sweet friends xo
One of my sweet friends made one of these wreaths and I wanted to show it off! (If you make one- I’d love to see a picture…email me! ) xo
