Lace PlanterHi there! Here’s a quick little project we whipped up in our studio today. We’ve been doing a little decorating and these lace covered pots look so pretty in a group. Do you want to make your own set?

Lace planter stepsThis DIY is so simple it doesn’t even really need these photos, but just in case…

Supplies Needed: Lace, Glue, Scissors, Terra Cotta Pots, Plants.

1. Brush glue all over your pot.

2. Adhere lace and then brush an extra layer of glue over the top to seal.

3. Allow your new pots to dry completely before you use them.

  • Great project. I’d just add that if youbrush pot sealer inside before beginning, no water Mark’s or mold will be making their appearance on the outside after you’re done.

  • Now it comes to AIDS, can not say that cause all the panic, or panic caused by the vast majority of people, especially those who fear Ai. Serious fear of Ai, they always think they are suffering from AIDS, do not believe the test results, changing mood, severe insomnia, indifferent to the people around him, resulting in weight loss, aches and discomfort. In fact, this is completely necessary, in the face of AIDS, do not need to panic. I say I am afraid to arouse the anger of many people, how not to panic. There is absolutely no need to, Why do you say ah? Can be said that the AIDS panic fear Ai crowd, the reason they have the AIDS panic, because of their lack of understanding of AIDS prevention knowledge, or ill-understood, so the cause of AIDS panic, a little bit wrong will make them feel infected with AIDS, especially those who have had high-risk behavior. Cause of AIDS panic Another reason is that our media, the Internet, books exaggerated the route of transmission of AIDS. Our media the way of the spread of AIDS is too exaggerated, even to the barber shop barber also may be infected with AIDS, masturbation can sometimes infected with HIV, oral sex can also be infected with HIV, but these are in foreign countries has been confirmed, the AIDS virus with increasing temperature, ph debugging, to hasten death, not like China’s media said to contain the AIDS virus liquid dried up three hours later are not infectious. Water can destroy the shell of the AIDS virus, resulting in his death, Therefore, items of HIV infection, rinse with water, can eliminate the virus and not have to wait until three days later, the virus will not contagious. HIV infected cells, special cells, the cells are found within the blood vessels of the body’s meridians, vaginal secretions and semen, the general subcutaneous tissue does not exist such a cell, so even if your hands are small wound contact with AIDS patients, the risk of infection is still very small, because your blood flow out rather than fill it flow, let alone your subcutaneous tissue is simply not the kind of special cells, and how infection AIDS need is the one with the human environment, and a good spread of cells can be infected unless your body is kind of a car accident wound, and the outflow of blood very much, there are a lot containing a large number of HIV infected blood into your body, you will be infected. The medical needle punctured the skin is not spread AIDS. This is because the first needle and syringe is in the air, air can kill the AIDS virus, and the needle punctured the skin, subcutaneous tissue of infected cells, so easy to be infected,

  • Adorable! Decorating the terra cotta pots always interests me, though I’m also a bit worried about how well the stuff will stick on it. These should stick, especially if you use correct kind of glue, right?

  • I’m excited about this! Thank you for being so generous with your experience and encouragement.

  • Such a cute idea! I’ll probably use colored lace and fake plants though. < that sentence pretty much defined who I am as a person

  • Silly question over here! Which glue would you recommend using? Super, PVA or Pritt Stick? I want to make these with the kids for the garden, but I want them to last!

  • Those are so beautiful!
    I LOVE your new blog design too!

  • Really special look to just an ordinary pot! 😀

  • I vasetti vestiti di pizzo giuro non l i avevo mi visti
    Grazie per avermeli fatti conoscere
    Un bacio

  • Making these during nap-time, today! Thank you for the inspiration!

  • I did something similar with glass jars…flower pots will be pretty to do too!

  • Adorable! Brilliant idea -looks like I found my next project! Thank you!

  • Made this! I painted the pot bright colors under the section that I put the lace on and it turned out really cute!

  • My friends gave away plants for their wedding last year. A decoration like that would have been perfect.

  • You always post the cutest DIY Tutorials! Thank you so much for it!

  • Thanx Elsie… Great birthday gift idea for my mom’s upcoming birthday 😉

  • Beautiful! You can also use lace and make very fashionable lace collar like this

  • oh you know what would look cool! To somehow tape on the lace and then paint over it with spray paint or something and then see if the pattern is left on the pot! I wonder if that would work…

    • Love the ideas and do simple as spring us here ine dsy gone the next rite now, I’m tempted to go out and get things started I have old broken pots and dingy looking hangers. This site has given me a new lease on diy, cuz i have as almost everything need.
      One question how would i add pressed flowers without taking away the color of flowers or smearing the any idea product to use?

  • Cute! i love the ideas you come up with 🙂 very creative

  • Such a lovely idea with something like a succulent ( well, it’s a lovely idea for any potted beauty, but succulent in particular because the lace adds a bit of femininity!)

  • Style mergers are the way to go, so the flower pots seem just brilliant. The rough and rustic clay combined with delicate white lace? Priceless! (By which I mean: wonderfully affordable.)

  • wow these are soooooo cute! I’ve been thinking of covering mine with some chevron fabric. What kind of glue did you use for the terracotta?



  • These are so pretty! You always inspire me to get crazy DIY happy 🙂

  • I am seriously obsessed with my new windowsill cactus garden this year, so I already have the cacti in pots… time to get some lace!

  • My cousin got married this weekend in Arizona, and the centerpieces were cacti! I snagged three (I;m sure airport security thought I was crazy!), and I was looking for something fun to do with them; this is perfect! Love the simple, classy idea.

  • These are so pretty, a lovely addition to any desk or room!

  • So pretty. Deffenitly makes me wish my family and I weren’t plant killers.

  • What an amazing idea.
    I should give this lovely makeover to my extremly boring pot plants.

  • This is so cute! I am just entering the grown up world and have my first aparent with out college room mates. I use your projects to decorate my apartment and everyone loves all my cute new decor! Thanks for all the great ideas.

  • It’s a sweet idea, and nice additional texture, but can’t say I love this one.


  • Love the idea, but does it hold up with watering? Terra cotta is so porous, would it discolor the lace?

  • Oh I love lace!! Its such a delicate thing but I love incorporating it into everyday life! These pots are perfect and something I’d never ever thought of!! Combining a delicate textile with pot and earth! AMAZING! 🙂
    I made a star blanket (as it is winter over here in NZ) recently with lace. You can see it here if you’d like:
    As always thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration!!
