DIY | flower pot centerpiece

Share this project

Cute, easy and inexpensive… this centerpiece table number combo can be made days ahead.


  • terra cotta flower pots (michael’s)
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape (michael’s)
  • stamp pad
  • number stamps (for the table number flag)
  • bbq skewers
  • scissors
  • plants of your choice

  1. Dust off your terra cotta pots and carefully apply your choice of Tim Holtz tissue tape, possibly creasing some areas to compensate for the curve of the pot.  2. Using your bbq skewers, apply a piece of tape around the skewer and stick both sides together. Then cut to your desired flag style.

  1. Stamp or print table numbers onto your choice of paper, cut to 1″ x 3/4″ pieces.  4. Place table number at the side of the skewer, using the tape, apply around skewer and attach to itself; cut excess tape away.  5. Pot your choice of flower.  6. Insert your flags!

I'm a year late here, but these planters turned out great! I just included them in a round-up of terra cotta planter pot makeovers over at Match Made on Hudson :)

These are so adorable! I love the idea of fresh flowers while still being inexpensive! Can you tell me what type of flowers you used?

    Hi Kristen! I'm not sure the name of the flowers but they are just regular garden flowers that I purchased at Lowes :)
