DIY Spring Flower Pots

Spring Is in the Air

I love spring flowers, so I wanted to make my own flower pots to showcase them. Using repurposed Hiland Dairy Organic Milk cartons and some extra fabric I had on hand from the Milk Carton Storage Boxes I created earlier this month, I was able to create these flower pots in no time!

What You’ll Need:

DIY Spring Flower Pot Supplies

  • 2 Hiland Dairy Organic Milk cartons, half gallon-size
  • Fabric, various colors and patterns
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Measuring tape
  • Pen (to mark measurements)
  • Adhesive spray, optional


  • Rinse cartons with warm, soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
  • Cut the tops off of each carton, making one carton 6 inches tall and the other carton 4 inches tall.

DIY Spring Flower Pot Step 1

  • Using scissors, cut fabric to fit each side of the two cartons.

DIY Spring Flower Pot Step 2

  • Using a glue gun, adhere each piece of fabric to each side, making sure your fabric pieces fold over the top and slightly inside the carton opening. Allow glue to try completely.
    • Tip: If you don’t want to glue these using a hot glue gun, you can use adhesive spray instead.

DIY Spring Flower Pot Step 3

  • Poke a few small holes in the bottom of each carton to allow for water drainage.

DIY Spring Flower Pot Step 4

  • Plant your favorite spring flowers in each pot and water as needed.

Diva’s Tip

You can speed up the process by gluing one piece of fabric completely around each carton.
