A Spring Favorite...My Easy Flower Pot Wreath

It's really feeling like spring is finally here in Georgia, so I am adding a little bit of spring to my house with my easy-to-make flower pot wreath! It may just be my favorite project ever! I first showed it to you two years ago, but I love it so much that I decided to share it again just in case you are new to my blog and have not seen it. I love playing with flower pots for my spring and summer projects!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Flower Pot Wreath You might remember my whimsical little flower pot man with his creeping jenny hair! So it should come as no surprise that I decided to make him a wreath to match!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Flower Pot WreathI actually found the inspiration for the wreath at Bees Knees Bungalow. Jeanne’s wonderful photo of a wreath she spotted has been making the rounds at Pinterest! There is no tutorial, so I made up my own version. Here’s what you’ll need: a grapevine wreath, twine, scissors, Spanish moss, some floral foam, an assortment of faux flowers and greenery and terra cotta flower pots in assorted sizes.

pot sizes I got mine at Michaels (with a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase…yaaay!) I bought ten 1 ½ inch pots, five 2 ½ inch and five 3 inch pots.

step oneI started with the five largest pots and spaced them around the wreath, securing them with twine tied tightly on the back with a double knot. I suppose you could use wire, but I like the look of twine.

step two Then I filled in with the next size and then finally with the smallest pots. I tried really hard not to be too symmetrical…not easy for me! lol

step three Next, I carefully flipped it over and cut all the ties on the back to a length that would remain secure but would not show from the front.

stop four Then I cut a piece of the floral foam and fitted it into the five largest pots. This will hold the faux flowers in place.

step fiveI filled in the pots with the flowers and added some greenery and Spanish moss. The flowers I chose are faux Queen Anne’s lace in shades of purple. I like the contrast of the purple with the grey-green plants and the grey Spanish moss.  

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Flower Pot Wreath And finally...taaa daaa! I suppose you could use real plants, but they wouldn’t last very long on my sunny front porch. And just a note…it’s heavy, so be sure you hang it securely.

Here's how it looks on my front door! I used a metal over-the-door wreath hanger and attached the wreath with wire. I love it…such a fun and festive welcome for my visitors!

bk Now Baby Kitty wants to know when I am going to make a flower pot kitty! Hmmm…I guess I’ll be searching Pinterest for my next inspiration!

And just in case you are looking for another fun and super easy idea for flower pots, here are my chalkboard flower pots!  They make a great gift since you can add the greeting that suits the occasion. I love this idea for hostess or end-of-the-year teacher gifts...or maybe just a sweet little reminder to someone that they are special!
