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.
