The GRASS IS GREENER if it's Made of Sequins! Decorate a Plant Pot Tutorial.

Why wait for the seeds to grow before you can enjoy your pot plants again?
Follow our step-by-step guide to customise your own plain white plan pot.


Decorate the Saucer:

  • Measure the inside circumference of the saucer & cut a strip of velvet ribbon to length leaving 2cm excess. Lay the ribbon face down & glue the tips of green tusk sequins along the length of ribbon. 
  • Once the grass strip is done, glue another length of thinner satin ribbon on top of the sequin tips to sandwich them in place for extra security.





  • Glue gun the sequined strip to the inside of the saucer, with the velvet ribbon face-out. Trim the excess length at the seam. 
  • Finish off the grass by gluing the odd yellow & red sequin daisy onto the tusks.




  • Complete the pot by sticking a length of retro polka dot ribbon around the outside using double-sided tape.
  • Tip 1: randomly place the tusks facing left & right to create a natural grassy effect
  • Tip 2: use velvet ribbon to glue the sequins to, the glue will not show through the thicker material


Decorate the Pot:

  • Measure the outside circumference of the rim of the pot & cut green rainbow ribbon to length leaving 2cm excess. Stick the ribbon to the rim & trim the excess at the seam.
  • Choose a selection of sequinned butterfly & bug appliqu├ęs like the ones below to decorate the pot. 



  • Lay each motif face down & attach random lengths of colour-coordinated wire to the back. 
  • Jazzy up the wire by wrapping it around your pencil creating a spiral effect. Or for a subtler look, thread a few green seed beads on the wire and secure in place with a small blob of clear super glue.
  • Glue gun the motif backs in place around your pot. 
  • Sandwich the wire ends to the base of the pot with another strip of ribbon. The saucer will hide this.
  • Tip: use double sided tape on satin ribbons; this avoids any lumps showing through
