This easy Flower Pot Wreath is a great craft project to create a simple transitional wreath for the late summer to early fall seasons. The small flower pots add some dimension to the wreath and instead of traditional flowers I will be using artificial cactus. Below are the supplies and instructions needed to make this unusual Flower Pot Wreath.
Flower Pot Wreath – supplies
- 1 Large grapevine wreath
- 5 Small Terracotta Pots, an odd amount is more visually appealing to the eyes
- A variety of several artificial cactus plants, one for each pot and some extras
- Spanish moss
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Wire, to secure the pots to the wreath
Flower Pot Wreath – instructions
- Arrange the terracotta pots, evenly placed around the wreath. (I spaced the pots on the lower portion of the wreath)
- Cut an 8” length of wire for each pot. Lace through the bottom hole and attach each pot to the wreath in the pre-determined positions.
- Fill each individual terracotta pot with some Spanish moss
- Hot glue the cactus plants into the pots, alternate the variety from pot to pot for an appealing arrangement. Be sure to reserve a few of the cactus for later use.
- Now that the pots are attached and filled, hot glue extra cactus between the pots. (I saved the longer type cactus for this purpose)
Once I completed the Flower Pot Wreath I hung it on the side door of our home that leads into the garage. Once winter comes and the weather becomes colder, I will move the wreath indoors and place it downstairs to hang in our “California Room” (this room has been described in a previous post)
This Flower Pot Wreath craft idea can be used in a variety of different ways for any season, maybe use daffodils for Spring or sunflowers for Fall.
