How to make fabric-covered pots from yogurt containers


Go old-school with these quick and easy fabric-covered pots. It’s a great way to upcycle yogurt containers and is an impressive gift for kids to make.

Level of difficulty: Quick and easy
Age range: 4+ with help
Safety first: Young crafters can use safety scissors.
The takeaway: This is a great way to upcycle food containers. If kids find wrapping the fabric too cumbersome, cut it into little pieces so they can decoupage the old-school way. When you’re done, use these containers to dress up potted plants (Hello, teacher gift!) or to store their pencil crayons and art supplies.

You’ll need:
recycled containers, yogurt tubs are the perfect size
scrap of woven fabric
safety or pinking shears
craft sealer like Mod Podge or white school glue
pompom trim (adorable but optional)

Step 1
Cut a piece of fabric big enough to cover your container. Tip: Pinking shears will keep the edges from fraying. Do a test wrap before gluing it down to make sure it covers the whole container. Apply glue to the body of the container and start wrapping. Continue to add glue until it’s covered. Seal the seam with glue as well.

Step 2
Trim away excess fabric from the top and bottom leaving about one-inch of overlap.

Step 3
Using your scraps, cut out a circle that will cover the bottom of the container. Glue it down and rub out any wrinkles.

Step 4
Apply glue to the inside rim of the container and fold over your fabric to cover the top edge. The glue will feel slippery on the plastic but it will hold, you just need to work it into place until you feel it grip.

Step 5
Cut a piece of pompom trim long enough to wrap around your container. Glue it down. You’ll have to work it in with your fingers until the glue sticks, just like Step 4. For a quicker grip, use a hot glue gun for this step, just a few drops will give you an instant hold.

Ta-da!
This craft is so simple but looks so impressive and cute. You can experiment with different fabrics, trims and container shapes.
