Paint the rim of your pot.
I chose black, but any color would be fabulous. I only did one coat of paint because I wanted the terra cotta color to peak through in spots. I also left the bottom of the pot its original color so that it too would show through the burlap.
Measure the length of the unpainted portion of your pot and add one inch (you will need excess to wrap the burlap over the bottom of your pot) Measure with the circumference (at the widest point) of the pot.
Cut a strip of burlap with the measurements from step 2.
Glue Burlap to the pot.
I used Beacon's all purpose glue (which I use to make my daughter's hair bows). You could also use a glue gun...heck, I bet Elmer's would even work. Apply glue in small sections as you apply the burlap to allow you to lay the fabric as you would like. Once you get the pot wrapped, you will then need to fold the burlap under the bottom of the pot and glue. Note: this is much easier to do if you don't have a plant already in your pot....if your pot is occupied, slide it to the edge of a table, exposing a small edge of the underside of the pot. Glue and then rotate.
