InstructionsI used mod podge to adhere the fabric to the pots, painted the inside rim with acrylic paint then applied several coats of polyurathane. I left the pots to completely cure for a few weeks. I didn't want to waste money on pot holders so I asked my husband to knock up the timbre brackets you can see in the photo, which we have just spray painted to match the fence and screwed on.

What was your inspiration?
I have an alley way down the side if my house that I have been working on different ways to brighten it up since we moved in 18 months ago. I thought putting pots up the fence might be a bit quirky and fun.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
For the pots to be comoletely waterproof you need to allow them enough time to cure. Also, you need to seal the inside as well as the outside otherwise the pot will absorb water through the terracotta and the podge will bubble. When I planted my pots I put a kitchen sponge at the bottom of each to help retain water snd also to plug up the whole so that only water and no soil will fall through.
