I am definitely a coffee girl and love enjoying a cup of Starbucks? coffee each morning at my home. Besides loving all of their products, I really love a company that gives back. The Starbucks One Tree for One Bag campaign in May is a conservation effort where Starbucks is donating $0.70 to Conservation International for every bag of coffee sold at participating Albertsons and Safeway stores.

Here are some more details:

  • For every bag of Starbucks? 10-12z & 20z Ground or Whole Bean coffee purchased at participating Albertsons Company stores in the U.S. from May 1st through May 28, Starbucks provides one disease-resistant coffee tree to a farmer in Mexico, Guatemala or El Salvador, ?by donating 70? to Conservation International to foster thriving coffee communities.

We are a big recycling family at our house and try to recycle everything that we can. Ever since opening an Etsy shop five years ago, I have an abundance of fabric scraps at my house from all of the clutches that I make. ?I really don’t do any other sewing projects besides making clutches, so I always end up with a lot of leftover fabric. I have been trying to think of ways to reuse the fabric scraps instead of throwing them away, and finally thought of an idea. Below is a DIY Fabric Flower Pot tutorial that is my mini conservation effort to reuse materials that I already have while dressing up a boring clay pot at the same time!

DIY Upcycled Fabric Flower Pot Tutorial

What you will need:

  • Fabric scraps (size depending on size of your clay pots)
  • Clay pots (size depending on your plant size)
  • A small bag of Potting Soil
  • Flowers of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Decoupage Adhesive
  • Sponge brush
  • Ruler


Lay one of your clay pots down on its side and trace around your pot about an inch on the top and bottom. Once you’ve done this, roll your pot around until you have an arch of fabric (I did this with my first fabric, but then just eyeballed it for the other two.

Cover the entire bare clay pot in Mod Podge and and then tightly roll your fabric arch around the pot. trim any excess fabric on the bottom and top of the pot (but leave a small amount to fold down). Cover the outside of the fabric with your decoupage adhesive and then fold down the edges inside the pot and on the very bottom. Let the pots dry completely for at least 8 hours.

Using your bag of potting soil, plant whatever type of plants or flowers you would like and VOILA! Your gorgeous upcycled fabric flowerpots are done!
