Make your own pretty plant pot with some patterned material and mod podge. This DIY home decor craft idea will look great when displayed in the home with lovely flowers or a plant inside.

To make this mod podge plant pot you will need:

Scissors

Paint brush

Step 1 Cut a piece of material so that it is slightly bigger than the plant pot - it is best to cut it bigger than you think as it can be trimmed down afterwards. Cover a section of the plant pot in mod podge. This coat will need to be thick enough that it wont immediately dry, however not so thick that it will soak right through the material. If your material is particularly thin or light in colour it might be best to paint the plant pot white first so the terracotta colour doesn't show through.

Step 2 Place the material over the area of the plant pot that is covered in mod podge. Use your fingers to smooth out any wrinkles and to ensure the material is completely stuck down.

Step 3 Cut slits in the top and bottom of the material (the pieces that aren't stuck to the plant pot). Turn the pot upside down and cover the bottom of the pot in a layer of mod podge. Then start folding down the slits, applying more mod podge when necessary. Leave to dry. Once dry, turn the pot the right way up and use the same technique to fold down the material along the rim of the plant pot. It doesn't have to cover the whole of the inside of the pot - just enough so that the pot can't be seen when the plant is inside.
