Pot Wreath Plans

Last June,  I posted a a pic I took of the Bachman's 2011 Summer Ideas House.
The Pot Wreath.

Since then, it's had wild ride on Pinterest.
 The wreath is the reason I found Pinterest in the first place.
I had so many hits from it that I researched where they were coming from.  And so, my own Pinterest love affair began. The wreath continues to be pinned and repinned. It's crazy. 

I've had many emails asking for a tutorial of how it's made.
 Each one asks where find it.
But I didn't make it.
I merely took the picture - which I explain to the many emailers.
Due to the interest, I've begun a quest to make a wreath of my own.
I've begun collecting what I need.

I'm on a budget, so my goal was to find everything on the cheap.
A few months ago, I found a wire wreath frame at Goodwill for $1.99
I bought it with this project in mind. 

This past weekend, while garage sailing in the rain - in 44 degree weather.... (die hard)
Linda and I stumbled upon a wagon full of chippy and weather worn little pots.
Fabulously chippy and Fabulously cheap - $1.35 for all. Score.


I've got my wire form. I've got my pots.
I need the succulents. I'm hoping to find those at some plant sales.
I need wire to wrap the pots and moss as filler.

Once collected, I'll do a full tutorial and show the success.
Here is the original post.
There are no instructions, but I'm crafty and will make it ask I think it was done.
Then, show you how.

Succulents,  I'm comin' for ya!

**Update July 2012**
I've made the pot wreath - my own version.
Tutorial Here.

xo jeanne.


  1. Jeanne, this is a GREAT wreath. I am anxious for you to post your tutorial soon. I wonder if it will be super heavy?

  2. Thank you for posting this. It’s exactly what I was looking for!

  3. Hi! I had seen the original picture on Pinterest months ago and Loved It! which was the inspiration for my own clay pot wreath w/ cactus. Love how she incorporated the two. Mine are doing well, so far, on the front porch. It will "live" in my master bath near the window during the coming winter - so glad you snapped a pic of it! It's simply lovely.

  4. Love the idea of this much that I made my own version! It will be posted this morning with a shout out to you! Thanks for the inspiration...hugs...Debbie

  5. Attempting to make my own wreath. My wire frame looks just like yours (Hobby Lobby about $5). I have about 6 pots of various sizes wired on and the frame is bending. Not sure where to go from here. Hoping to gain some insight from your experience. Thanks! Jean

  6. Your wreath ala terra cotta pots is fabulous! I love the weathered pots, and you didn't even have to distress them. What a find.
    Now following you and your great posts. Want to come over to my lil blog and say hi?

  7. So cool! It looks like a wreath full of magic! I am featuring this at
