How cute! I would not give this up easily and even if I did, I'd make one for myself. My terracotta pots are mostly painted and I'd love a new look on them. I have everything I need already and it's so easy to decorate my pots. I am thinking wrapping a little less fabric so that the pot can still be seen.

These denim covered terracotta pots are adorable. A super easy craft for kids to do as well. I will have to dress up my windowsill herb pots with buttons and bows as the photo shows. Just be sure to keep the bottom of the pot free of fabric to avoid getting the fabric wet when watering a plant.

Pretty crafty! I am thinking that other materials than denim could be used as long as they were sturdy or thick or you could double them to make them thicker. It would be pretty to have a display of these in varying sizes. This is a nifty way to present a gift plant, too.
