My DIY Fabric Covered Flower Containers to Match Porch Pillows is a repurpose project.
I used fabric remnants, Mod Podge and repurposed vegetable cans to create these flower pots to match my porch pillows. Last summer I made the porch pillows and cushions for our little porch makeover project which you can see here. Below is a photo of the pillows and chair cushions I made last summer.
- Empty cans, cleaned and dried (I used soup cans, empty clean paint cans will work also)
- Fabric, amount of fabric depends on how many cans you wish to cover
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush for applying Mod Podge
Mod Podge is a really fun medium to work with. It’s grown up glue project fun! For this project, I used the Outdoor formula which has the green label.
Follow the directions on the container for applying the Mod Podge. My last outdoor Mod Podge project was our Patriotic Repurposed Can Birdfeeder. I used the outdoor formula for the bird feeder which has held up exceptionally well in the unforgiving summer sun here in the deep south.
Due to the drying times, this project may take several days to complete.
Be sure to drill a couple of holes into the bottom of the cans for drainage before adding the dirt and flowers.
We selected begonias for our containers and purchased them from a local grower. We love begonia’s, they are a big favorite for southern gardeners. Begonia’s are perfect for containers or for planting in beds.
It doesn’t get much more budget friendly than FREE! We enjoy our Fabric Covered Flower Containers and their begonia’s every weekend when we share coffee and conversation on the front porch!
