DIY Flower Pot Wreath

DIY Flower Pot Wreath

Welcome to this month’s challenge hosted by Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip.  This month we were all challenged to create  a summer craft.  If you are coming from Pallet and Pantry, welcome! 

Using a variety of small terra cotta pots I created this flower pot wreath.  Adding faux succulents and some moss into the pots gave it a completed look. Begin with a variety of small terra cotta flower pots.  I ended up using five 3 1/2″ pots, five 2 1/2″ pots,  sixteen 2″ pots and five little 1 1/2″ pots. Using a dry brush, I added Apple Barrel Antique Parchment Matte Acrylic paint to my pots.

  Use a rough bristle brush, dip it into the paint and then tap most of the paint off onto a piece of paper before brushing on the pots.  Make sure you paint the bottoms of the pots as they will be seen on your wreath.  

Select a sturdy 18″ grapevine wreath and begin working on attaching the flower pots. 


Using a heavy duty twine, feed it through the hole in the bottom of the pot.  Thread the twine through the grapevine wreath until it sits the way you want on the wreath.  Begin by attaching  your largest pots around your wreath.  Add the second largest size of pots next…and so on.

Some of your pots will be upright, some sideways, etc.  Arrange them however they look the best to you.  This flower pot wreath is yours, make it look the way YOU want it to look.  Wedge small pieces of floral foam into the pots that you are going to want to put the succulents in.  Don’t fill every single one with a plant.

Tuck some moss in around the succulents and in some of the little pots. 

A flower pot wreath can grace your front door or a garden wall and will be equally beautiful in either location!  

I mixed real and faux succulents in this centerpiece which would coordinate beautifully with this wreath. 

Now, head on over to Cloches and Lavender and see what  Cindy has done for summer!

  1. oh my gosh! This is adorable. I love succulents too and have made many projects using them. This is outstanding. Great job!

  2. So cute! I love this. And there are a ton of different things that you could put in the pots… too perfect.

  3. Chloe,

    I love this it’s adorable! Pinned! Have a great 4th!

  4. What a fun way to reuse all the mini pots I’ve collected over the years!! Would love to make one for my garden shed door!! Thank you for the inspiration, Chloe!!

    1. Oh, Christine, it will be adorable on your garden shed, but I like your boxwood and lemon one, too!

  5. What an amazing wreath. I just love how this would look out on a patio surrounded by a pretty garden. Love the succulents added to the pots and how you aged the pots. Awesome. A beautiful wreath to have for the summer. Love it!

  6. This is such a beautiful wreath! Attaching the pots with the twine is such a great idea. I’ve always wanted to make a similar wreath but didn’t want to glue the pots on. Thanks for that helpful tip!

  7. This is adorable! I am for sure going to have to try it! Also I love the paint color you went with to age your pots!

  8. I am in love with this wreath! I am going to make one. Love the succulents in it too!

  9. Wow! I wondered how you attached those pots. It seems like it would be a very heavy wreath. I think it is neat that we both used the same pots in our projects– and I think some of yours are the same sizes as mine!

  10. This is really cute Chloe, but is it really heavy? I would have never thought to look for pots on Amazon, I swear they have everything! Love the faux succulents, they look so real!

    1. Thank Jenna. It is heavy, but hangs fine from my door knocker. All of my Dollar Tree stores were out of the little terra cotta pots, so…next best thing! I love faux succulents, too, because I always kill the live ones!

    1. Thank you Chas, I am so glad I was challenged to make it, because I was so happy with how it turned out!

  11. Chloe, this is so ingenious. I like that you can use the wreath in between seasons and holidays. Super cute.

  12. Hi Chloe

    You just prove that you can defy even gravity. (LOL) That is stunning! I would have never thought of using so many pots for fear that it will be too heavy. You created a beautiful piece.

    1. Thank you so much Edmee! It IS too heavy to hang with Command hooks, but not too heavy for a nail, or for my door kocker!

  13. You work magic in wreaths, topiaries, and crafts in general, Chloe. This is awesome. Happy 4th!
