Miniature Terra Cotta Flower Pot Wreath

Make a miniature terra cotta flower pot wreathMany moons ago, during our first home remodel, I practically lived on eBay, finding all sorts of treasures and heavily discounted items for our home. One click here, one click there and I stumbled upon some miniature terracotta flower pots at an I-got-to-buy-it-now awesome price! Of course the item I just had to have sat for a long while on a shelf until I could think of a project to use them for. Typical, isn’t it, of the stuff we think we just need to have?! Finally, with idea in mind, I came up with a pot perfect way to welcome in Spring.

How to make a mini flower pot wreath

This is a rather simple project but it does take some time, simply because you must have the *patience* to paint these little flower pots. But the outcome is worth the effort!

Step No. 1 –
Grab your painting supplies and paint your flower pots in whatever color(s) you enjoy best.

Step No. 2 –
Once dry, apply a coat of polyurethane to the flower pots. This is an optional choice. I chose to do this to protect the pots from dirt and debris since I was hanging this wreath outside. It also gives the flower pots some shine.

Step No. 3 –
I cut strips of floral wire and inserted each strip through the drainage hole at the bottom of the flower pot. It should look like the flower pot is dangling off the floral wire, like a necklace pendant!

Then wrap and secure the floral wire around one of the rims of the wire wreath. I wrapped flower pots on both the upper and lower rims of the wreath form. Proceed in this manner until the wreath is covered, leaving a small space should you want to attach a bow.

Step No. 4 –
Once all the pots are secured onto the wreath form, wrap raffia (or ribbon) around the wreath form and attached flower pots to fully cover the wreath and any floral wire.

Step No. 5 – 
Attach a bow, if desired.
A friendly tip: I used some heavy wire to hang this wreath due to its weight.

Update the wreath for fall!

I love this wreath. It’s one of my favorite DIY projects. An easy way to keep it up all spring, through the summer and into the fall is to add a simple miniature pumpkin wire garland and insert it in between the mini flower pots. Ta da! It’s an autumn wreath.

      Thank you! It takes a little time to paint all the little pots but worth it once it’s hanging on your door. Thanks for stopping by!

    What a precious idea! I love the bright colors, succulents, and that it is a unique spring wreath. I actually just saw some mini pots at the $ store last weekend and passed them up. I think I will have to go back and get me some. Found you at the Talk of the Town link party. Pinning!

    so cute! I like the raffia. I made on last year using 4″ & 2″ pots painted in primary colors, then filled in with moss and faux ivy for an auction…those little pots can get quite heavy!

      I’m sure your wreath turned out just great! This wreath is heavy and it’s little pots so I can only imagine the weight on yours! Thanks for stopping by.
