Décopatch Cactus Pots

At the weekend, I was browsing my local Hobbycraft looking for a relaxing Sunday afternoon crafting activity when I found myself in the décopatch aisle. Décopatch is new to me but the bright and vibrant decorative sheets caught my eye (I’m like a magpie for anything colourful) and I was curious to learn more. The idea is pretty simple: using a dab of glue and the range of bold patterned papers you can completely transform a boring looking object into something fun and eye-catching. I wanted to give it a try.

First you select your base object, this can be anything from an animal, box, picture frame and much more. For my first attempt I wanted to keep things simple with a few mini plant pots. Next you pick your paper, there are tons of beautiful designs to choose from: I went for Pink Llamas, Multicoloured Mosaic and Watercolour Polkadots. Finally, grab some glue and a brush and you are good to go!

I admit, I did Google ‘How to decopatch’ when I got home to see if there were any special skills I needed to learn. Nope. All you need to do is tear up the paper sheets, generously cover object in glue and stick.

It’s like papier mache, but prettier and less messy.

I did a few layers of paper and sealed the whole thing with an extra layer of glue. Ta-da!

Next up was my llamas. The paper looked cute but it turned out to be the most fiddly. As you don’t want to rip your llama’s head off you gotta be especially careful here. Sadly, I don’t think this was the best paper to use for the job, I mean it’s adorable, but headless llama’s tend to lose their cuteness factor. 

Photo showing the side with the most complete llamas.

For the last one, I could go back to random tearing without having to worry about harming any llamas.

It’s enjoyable to watch something plain turn into something so colourful in a matter of minutes.

Once you are happy with the finished design, give it some time to dry then the pots are ready to use. 

I saw these unusual looking cactus in the garden centre complete with bright colourful heads, they fitted perfectly in my pots so I thought they were too good not to buy. Colourful pots need colourful cactus, right?

The possibilities with décopatch are endless! You can make a patchwork design using multiple sheets of paper, you can decorate various animals, letters, pots, boxes and much more. Just grab a base, some pretty paper and get sticking. Have you ever tried décopatch before? What did you create? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

    I have never heard of this before! But I loved what you have done, it looks so cool! I definitely need to make some of my own haha 😊😍 xx

      Thank you so much Gemma! It was really fun, I’m glad you enjoyed <3 xx

    So pretty Bexa! and these pots look so unique. Love the overall look very cutesy. These post has given me some ideas to brighten up my otherwise dull desk.

    • January 17, 2019 / 3:03 pm

      Thank you so much lovely! Aww yay, that is awesome the post has given you some ideas! <3 xx

    You and decopatch are a match made in heaven, Bexa, these pots are so cute, my favourite is the mosaic effect one. I love decopatch, I do it quite a lot with Flora, we’ve got a whole menagerie of animals (cats, dolphins, lizards, unicorns) and boxes. It’s such a fun and relaxing way of spending time together and the bonus is we have something lovely to show at the end of it. Also, a tip for you next time you don’t want to tear anyone’s head off, just rip all the paper as normal and then cut out a few llamas/cats/whatevers and stick them over the top at the end. This is lovely – I feel a future collab may be on the cards, haha! xx

      Thank you so much for the kind comment as always Lisa! 🙂 I did see cats and unicorns in Hobbycraft and was tempted, will save those for next time! That is so lovely you do it with Flora, it really is such a fun and relaxing activity. Aha, good tip about cutting out the llamas and sticking them on at the end and yes we 100% need to collab again, exciting!! <3 xx

  6. January 17, 2019 / 10:03 am

    What a cool idea! They look so pretty too. Was it quite relaxing doing it?

    • January 17, 2019 / 3:16 pm

      Thank you so much Rachael! It really was, I’m looking forward to doing it again sometime <3 xx

  7. January 17, 2019 / 10:17 am

    I love decopatch! I mean, I did love it a few years back – I sort of forgot it existed. But this has made me want to get back into it and make hundreds of cactus pots for the hundreds of cacti I am slowly beginning to own. It’s such a pretty craft, you really can’t go wrong, and it’s rewarding without having to wait too long for the end result! I love the watercolour polkadots, they are so so pretty.

      Thank you so much for the sweet comment Cordelia! Cactus are such cool plants, I can see why you have an impressive collection 🙂 It’s great that you can see the decopatch results in such a short space of time too. I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

  8. January 17, 2019 / 12:03 pm

    So those llamas are so cute and compliment the designs so well. I have seen my mum decopage before, she is so good at crafting side of things. She used to buy off the crafting channel. She has so many amazing crafting things! I love crafts so relaxing. You have made those pots look absolutely beautiful. So colourful! Thank you for sharing your crafting xx

    • January 17, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      Thank you so much for the kind comment Lauren! It really is such a relaxing thing to do, I can’t wait to try some more with different designs! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

    These little cactus pots are so cute! I love the different paper designs and I’m glad the llamas were saved!! I’ve never heard of Decopatch before but I will check them out when I’m next in hobbycraft!

    It has been ages since I visited your blog Bexa ! I was on a four months long break from blogging. Now I’m back and it’s so wonderful to see your colorful posts. I’ve never used décopatch but this idea is so great. I’ve a lot of boring looking objects lying around me and this post is motivating me to unleash my creativity on them 🙂

    Love,

  13. January 17, 2019 / 5:49 pm

    Oh this is so cute! I love how colourful yours are! We have a bunch of succulents on our window as I got my bf a terrarium for Christmas and this would be great for the ones that didn’t fit! Excuse me while I go spend needless amounts of money at hobby craft! 😁

    • January 18, 2019 / 4:31 pm

      Thank you for the lovely comment Lex! Yay for overspending in Hobbycraft, he he! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xx

    This is such a cute post, what a great way to spend a Sunday. I’m glad no llamas got hurt in the making of this post xx

      He he, thanks Hels! I’m glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

  15. January 17, 2019 / 7:23 pm

    I had never even heard of décopatch until this post and now I’m fully sold on it! I LOVE this idea. There are so many things around my flat that are so plain and boring that I’m now considering doing some décopatch DIY on. I just wish the nearest Hobbycraft to me wasn’t over an hour away 😭 I also absolutely love the llama paper you used, although you’re right that headless llamas don’t have quite the same effect haha.

    • January 18, 2019 / 4:34 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Kelly! I’m so happy it has inspired you to try décopatch! Aww, shame about Hobbycraft being so far, maybe you can buy online? 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the post and enjoy being creative! <3 xx

  16. January 17, 2019 / 7:29 pm

    They’re absolutely adorable and look amazing! The llama paper is so cute and I am glad that no llamas were hurt in the process 😉 Thanks for sharing x

    I love these little cactus pots! What a fab idea. I haven’t tried this before, I hadn’t even heard of them before haha. Such a good idea though, little mess and simple, makes creating things a lot easier – love it! These would be cute lil decorations for sure, I’m slowly collecting a cactus collection so maybe I should make them look a bit more funky with some pots like these! Lovely post <3

      Thank you so much for the kind comment Chloe! I’d defo recommend decopatch, it really is such a fun activity and there are so many awesome designs! Cactus are so cool, I think I might start a collection too! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

  18. January 18, 2019 / 1:47 am

    OMG Bexa! Cacti are my favorite thing in the world – so naturally, I enjoyed seeing this post! I’ve seen those cute lil pots around and I really want one!

    Oooh, I love that you can decorate these cute cactus pots! It is always nice to style up some plants, hehe. I love how creative you get with these designs. I gotta give this a try when spring hits. Thanks for sharing, Bexa!

  21. January 18, 2019 / 7:32 pm

    This is so cool!! I love paper mache, but I haven’t dabbled in those crafts in a long time. It’s good to know that it would be better to use the abstract patterned ones than to have cute animals on it and possibly become headless in the end!! 😆 Thank you so much for sharing – those little cactus plants are so adorable and perfectly match the pots!

    • January 20, 2019 / 3:05 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Geraldine! He he, yes abstract patterns did work better for me and saved the cute animals 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the post! <3 xx

  22. January 18, 2019 / 7:38 pm

    Oh wow these look great! Such a creative idea and seem like such fun to make too. They would definitely make lovely gifts as well so thanks for sharing!xx

    Okay, now this is a kind of crafts that I can get on board with. It’s not too hard, I can’t mess it up, you can choose from loads of options to make it fit your style and decorate almost anything so it’s not leaving you with something you won’t use? SOLD. It would be so cute to decorate boring items like my memory card holder pot like this! I’m going to see if my nearest store has some of these x

    These pots are looking so cute and pretty. Besides it is so easy to make them. I have never tried this but always thought that the design may fade due to the glue, but this is so cool and great idea for kids during their vacations. The colorful mosaic one is my favorite. Lovely and colorful post as always. Have a great day Bexa! 🙂

    These look amazing! I think I need to head down to my local Hobbycraft and pick up some decopatch because although I’m not creative at all this is definitely something I could do! I love your idea of doing a patchwork design with all different patterns as well that would look fab!

    I used to always look at Decopatch in craft shops and always liked the idea but thought it would be really difficult to do. Now I know it’s simple thanks to your post, I’m going to give it a go

    • January 20, 2019 / 4:47 pm

    Hi Bexa, I love the way your blog looks. I too like bright colors. I’ve never really crafted before, but I think if I try it, I would really like it. Never heard of decopatch before today but the look neat. I think the lama pot is neat too.

    This is such a good idea and they turned out looking gorgeous! I’m not very crafty but this looks like something even I could manage, haha. I’m the same as you in that I’m automatically drawn to anything colourful; I love a bit of colour in my life! Your blog always cheers me up because it’s so happy and colourful. Thanks for sharing this project with us, I’ve never heard of decopatch before but now I’ll look out for it next time I’m in somewhere like Hobbycraft.

    Oh my goodness, what a lovely idea! Last summer I bought four mini cacti and repotted them into a large bowl. Unfortunately, they became very unhappy with the move and began to look poorly. I potted them back into their original, individual pots but sadly over the following month they’ve all died, bar one. I feel so guilty! I since learned that cacti like to be in a small pot as they’re happier in a more confined space. Your little Découpatch pots would’ve been a perfect alternative. I’ve not seen anything like it before but I’ll definitely bear it in mind for future mini cacti purchases. Gorgeous post and pics as always x

    hahaha ‘headless llamas tend to lose their cuteness factor’! I haven’t been in hobbycraft for years and its one of those shops you could spend hours in isn’t it? This is such a fun idea- I wouldn’t have thought into it deeply enough to realise that the llama paper wasn’t the best for it either, but at least you know for next time, and it looks super cute in the picture anyway so it all worked out okay even if it was a little fiddly!

    “Headless llamas tend to lose their cuteness factor” almost made me spit tea all over my laptop! I tried decopatch a few years ago, I made a little turtle and it was so relaxing. I love your little pots and the cactus’ are so dinky and cute, I thought they were cardboard at first! Love the colourful heads.

    I have seen this is Hobbycraft and always wondered what it was, and what you do with it! Thank you for solving that mystery for me. I’m pleasantly surprised at how simple it is, but also how effective. Your plant pots look SO cute. This just seems like a perfect way to bring more colour into your life, and I’m all for that.

    I thought to myself “so it’s like paper mache” SECONDS before reading your like saying it was like paper mache 😂 before clicking onto this post, I didn’t realise that was how it was done! Looking at the pictures it looks so smooth and gorgeous! I didn’t think it was so easy, either. I’m going to have to take a trip to my Hobbycraft in the next few weeks and pick up some cute arts and crafts like this one ☺️

    THESE ARE SO CUTE. I made a decopatch bat last year at Halloween (Lisa sent it to me!) and I really enjoyed it and actually found it quite therapeutic, which is new for me because I usually just get impatient and frustrated doing anything like that. These look really lovely 🙂

    • January 24, 2019 / 2:19 pm

      Thank you so much Jenny! Decopatch is really relaxing, I can’t wait to try some more, I love the idea of Halloween themed decopatch! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

    The headless llama line made me giggle 😛 I immediately clicked on this post as i had a similar epiphany in Hobbycraft before christmas! My latest thing is using secondhand/ falling apart books to make different crafts, i’m actually experimenting with possible wooden pin badges for my Etsy store using decoupatch! I’m curious what you think of the Hobbycraft own-brand glue, as i’ve been using Modge Podge and it’s SO expensive :O

    This was the loveliest post, so happy to have found your blog!

    • January 26, 2019 / 5:12 pm

      He he, I’m glad the post made you giggle! Ooh I love the sound of using secondhand books for crafts, that sounds really fun! I have such an obsession with pin badges, I must check out your Etsy store asap! I’ve never used Modge Podge, the Hobbycraft glue seems to work well for decopatch though. Thanks for stopping by Sophie, I really appreciate your kind words <3 xx

    I have never even heard of Decopatch before but I love the look of them! I know my sister would love to try something like this and make her own little cactus pots. Looks like a great thing for children to do too. I love the llama design!! xx

      Thank you lovely! It is a great activity for children, it is really simple and easy to do. I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xx

    These pots are very cute! I’ve heard of decopatch before but never tried it myself, it looks like a lot of fun and I imagine very theraputic.
