Felt For Flower Pots

Kunin Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt felt is amazing for craft projects but did you know it has lots of practical uses around the home? Today I am sharing with you two very simple, practical ways to use Kunin Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt to make things better.


Lining flower pots to prevent the dirt from getting out used to be a challenge. I’ve tried rocks, gravel, pieces of broken pots, and even a golf ball to prevent the dirt from flowing out of the hole in the bottom of flower pots. The challenge is to keep the dirt in but allow water to drain. Enter Kunin Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt available by the yard!

Cut a piece of felt to fit the inside of the pot as a liner. The felt will:

  • Allow the pot to drain
  • Keep the dirt inside the pot
  • Resist mold and mildew



  • ½ yard of Kunin Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt in Brown
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Flower Pot
  • Flower
  • Potting Soil (not pictured)

Watch this video to see how to make this project from start to finish:



  1. Trace the flower pot onto the felt.
  2. Cut out a felt circle.
  3. Place the felt circle inside of the flower pot.
  4. Add the flower and potting soil.

Another way to use Kunin Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt is UNDER a pot to protect a table top or counter.


We found use large flower pot to store all of our cooking utensils in on the kitchen counter. I just got brand new quartz counter tops installed so to protect them, we cut out a circle of felt and placed it under the pot. This way we can safely slide the pot out of the way for cleaning.


You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin Eco-fi Classicfelt; Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.

How would you use Kunin Eco-Fi Premium Plus Felt in an unexpected yet practical way in your home?

One thought on “Felt For Flower Pots

  1. SO much better than trying to cover with pottery chips or rocks!
    Felt also makes a great wick for plants, like African Violets, that like to draw up their water from below… stick a 1/2″ wide strip out the bottom hole and up the side before adding dirt.
