DIY Fall Fabric Planters (No Sewing)

Hello friends! I have a quick and easy way to give your plant babies a different look for the season! This easy DIY project can be recreated any time of the year with fabrics that match the weather, and you don’t need a sewing machine.

Fall fabrics with botanical patterns and plaids are now available at most fabric stores. I found four seasonal cotton fabrics at Joann’s and bought 1/3 yard of each, making this an inexpensive project too.

how to make them super easy! Instead of sewing, use an inexpensive grow bag as a base!

Gather the following supplies: 1-gallon grow bags for small plants and 2-gallon grow bags for medium-sized plants; Scissors; iron-on fleece for ironing; iron & ironing board; Hot Glue & Glue Gun.

I bought my fabric and hot melt tape at Joann’s and two pumpkins too. 🙂

Step one: Cut off the grow bag handles and trim the top of the grow bag to the height of your existing ceramic planter. Cut a piece of fabric that is 1 inch higher at the top and 3 inches more at the bottom.

Step two: Following the directions for using the fusible connective tissue, first attach the fabric to the growth pocket around the perimeter of the top. The steam from the wet cloth activates the binding of the hot iron.

Next, attach the fabric to the vertical sides of the growbag by forming a vertical seam of fusible fabric from top to bottom. It helps to wrap the plant bag around the narrow edge of the ironing board when making the vertical seam with the melt pad and iron.

Step three: Cut slits in the excess fabric at the bottom and use a hot glue gun to attach the flaps to the bottom of the grow bag.

Place your existing flower box in your new fabric flower box. So easy right?

What makes it easy is using the plant growth bags as a base. Each takes less than ten minutes once you get the hang of it. 🙂

Use the same technique to make the same fabric planters this spring or summer!
