DIY Boho Terracotta Pots

You may notice how similar these pots are to a post a did a little while back that was inspired by Moroccan wedding blankets! Yes, I am still OBSESSED with these textiles and bohemian glam in general. I also loved how my Easter eggs turned out so much so that I wanted to have this theme incorporated in my home all year round. What better way to do that than through something as simple as terracotta pots with succulents in them!? SucculentPot-12

Here's what you need:

SucculentPot

  • Terracotta pots in appropriate sizes for your plants
  • Hot Glue Gun (and glue sticks)
  • Various Trims & Ribbons (I think it's best to have at least 4-5 different textures to choose from for your layers. You need creams, rather than bright whites for this project. I also love adding metallics into mine!)

Lay out a pattern to see the best combination of textures before you begin gluing.

You will want to hot glue in sections to keep your material as straight as possible while you cover the circumference of the pot. For example, make a dash of hot glue and place the material over it. Rotate the pot and add another dash of glue, etc. Repeat until you reach back to your starting point. Once there, trim any excess material.

Continue these steps for each layer, making sure to get them as close together as possible. It is supposed to appear to be one piece of fabric like an actual wedding blanket.

Voila! I chose not to cover my pots entirely, but you could easily use this method to create a full blown masterpiece of bohemian goodness.

Rather than bore you with photos of each of the steps again, above you can find the pattern I chose for my larger pot.

And here are my two completed pots!  I think my husband needs to watch out, I may end up hot gluing everything in our house to look like this. *Insert heart eye emoji here*
