Learn how to make a wreath with terracotta pots. It’s easy to make and fast. There is no glue that holds the wreath together so you can modify it with the seasons.
I don’t know about you, but spring here doesn’t want to arrive. I don’t remember seeing so much snow in April. Usually, the last storm is on St. Patrick’s Day, in mid-March, but not this year! Schools were even closed last week! It makes me wonder if mother nature is angry with us !!!
Anyhow, I still decided to make a new wreath with terracotta pots using the same grapevine base. I change my wreath each spring and I’m sure this one will also work for summer! Last year, around the same time, I made this spring wreath, which I then chaged for $1 once fall came.

What I used to make a wreath with terracotta pots
- 3 terracotta mini pots
- Artificial flowers
- Artificial floral moss
- Jute Twine
- Grapevine wreath
- Cutting pliers
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
How to make the wreath
First, the terracotta pots
I cut the artificial flowers about the same height than the terracotta pots. I used cutting pliers since artificial flowers often have metal stems.
Then I placed the artificial moss at the bottom of the pot. I added the flowers one by one and filled all the extra spaces with moss by pressing firmly.
To decorate the pots, I glued jute twine all around.
Ideally, I should have done this step before putting the flowers in the pots !! : P
Every project has its lesson! At least you can avoid this small mistake!
I finished tying the string by making a bow.
Second, assemble the wreath
Just like last year’s spring wreath (by the way, these are the same flowers!), I simply inserted the stems through the vines.
Looking beneath the wreath, we can see the stems that go around.
As I like to change the look of my wreath, I didn’t use glue. I took another piece of jute string, made two knots on the pot and finally tied it to the vines.
And finally, the result!
If you’re wondering about my door hook, you can see this article that shows you how I did it.
Also, if you find that the flowers don’t fit tightly enough in the pots, you can still add foam blocks. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t find it necessary since my wreath did withstand a snowstorm without losing anything!
Speaking of snow, if you’re insightful, you’ve noticed the reflection in the door … So I’ll be honest with you and show you the real view of the front of my yellow house. : ‘(
And yes, it’s April 9th … crazy! Where are you spring? I’m impatient to see you!!! Hoping that hanging this wreath helps a little.
