Easy No Sew Sweater Flower Pot Covers

I love mums in the Fall and I always add them to my fall porch decor. However, I am not a fan of the ugly plastic containers they come in. These no sew sweater flower pot covers can quickly remedy that!Easy no sew sweater flower pot covers for your Fall mums!


If you want to make them yourself here is what you will need (and about 5-10 minutes!)

  • old sweater
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun & glue
  • mums or any flower in an ugly container 😉

Fall flower pot covers using an old sweater!

 For Smaller Containers:

For smaller sized mums you will cut off the sleeves. Simply slip your sleeve over the container until it is fully covered and then cut off the excess. Glue the remainder of your fabric to the bottom of the container to hold it in place. Make sure to not have too much excess fabric so the plant can drain when you water it. That is it! So simple, right?

Cutting up an old sweater to cover your flower pots is a great way to add a fun fall touch to your containers.

Upcycling old sweters into flower pot covers is a fun and easy diy.

For Larger Containers

For your larger mums start by simply cutting your sweater apart. Next, lay your flower pot out on a flat surface on top of your sweater.

Using pieces of an old sweater to cover up your ugly flwer containers is an easy Fall DIY!

Then pull the sweater tightly around the pot and decide if you need to trim off any excess sweater fabric. Next, grab your hot glue gun to add a strip of glue to the sweater. Finally, glue the two pieces together to hold the sweater in place. Fold the bottom under and glue it to the bottom of your container. Simply use your hot glue gun to attach your sweater together and create your flower pot cover!

  1. What a cute idea!! I may have to add some sweater covers to my plants. Of course since I moved to the south I have few sweaters left. So a trip to the thrift store is in order. Thanks for sharing.
