Fold the fabric in half. Lay the hoop on top, with about half of the hoop hanging off. Cut a half circle at least 1 inch wider than the hoop.
Fold the flat side of the pockets over about 1/2 inch and pin. Sew across for a clean look and trim excess strings.
Pin the right sides of the fabric together. Sew only along the curved edge with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Back stitch at both ends. Then turn the pocket right side out.
Place the hoop inside the pocket so that it is snug and pushed to the bottom. Use the glue gun along the inside of the pocket to glue the hoop to the fabric, leaving the straight top unglued.
Place some lightweight filler into the pocket and then insert succulent stems or flowers until full. Remember, the glue is holding the pocket on, so don’t make the pocket planter to become too heavy!
