Step 2: Measure and Cut

Grab your fabric and pot and measure to determine the amount of fabric that you will need to cover each of the pots. Then, use the scissors to cut the fabric as close as you can to the correct size without going too small. Remember you need the fabric to cover the entire outside and part of the top and bottom of each pot. You can also opt to use any variety of paper cut-outs you’d like, and decoupage your flower pot with a collage of images.

Step 3: Get Gluing

We started by adding a layer of Mod Podge to one side of the pot, then adhering the fabric. We would hold it in place for a couple of minutes, until it started to really stick and then move on to the next section, until the entire outside of the pot was covered in fabric.

Step 4: Smooth out the Wrinkles

We then rotated the pot and straightened out any remaining wrinkles.
