DIY Leaf Decoupage Plant Pot Tutorial |

The Swedish designer Stig Lindberg created a classic pattern called “Berså” (arbor) in the 1960s. Tableware with the green and black Berså leaves are extremely popular in Sweden and cost quite a lot of money.

Thankfully, I’m a DIY:er and there’s always a cheaper and smarter way to create your own versions! (Step by step tutorial further down in this post).

The solution turned out to be napkins and decoupage technique. I decided to put the Stig Lindberg leaves on a plant pot, but you could of course choose something else as well.

Here’s how you do it:

White plant pot, napkins with leaf pattern (I used a pattern called Berså by Swedish Designer Stig Lindberg), scissors, decoupage glue and small brush.

How to:

  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Cut out leaves from napkin.
  3. Remove the bottommost napkin layers.
  4. Decide where you want to put the leaves.
  5. Apply a thin decoupage glue layer on a small area of the plant pot. Attach one end of the napkin leaves and carefully even out bubbles with your fingertips. Repeat a small step at a time until the entire leaf is attached. Let dry and apply one or two coats of decoupage glue on top of the leaves for a more durable result
  6. Put a plant in your gorgeous, finished plant pot!
