Love is in the air, and so is Spring time! When I think of Spring I think of flowers, bright colors, warm weather, the smell of fresh-cut grass, sunshine days and all-around cheeriness. Did you just have a moment? Me too.
These DIY flower pots are the perfect way to welcome Spring, and they’re not only fun and easy, but super cost-effective (my favorite). If you have little ones, buy a few extra pots so they can play too.
What you will need:
-Clay flower pots in varying sizes, (I found mine at Lowes, but check your local dollar store)
-Paints (I used Martha Stewart craft paint)
-Gold leaf paint
-Washi tape (optional)
1. Paint yo’ pots
Having an extra pot for my daughter Ayden to paint, proved to be a genius move. She loved crafting with me, and I was able to paint my own pots without her trying to ‘help’.
OR dip yo’ pots
I have been wanting to try this method for a while, and I love the water-color look that it produced. Fill a container with watered down paint of choice and dip pot in sections, starting from the bottom up. It will create a light-to-dark ombre effect.
I have a secret. I found these succulents growing in my neighborhood. There is an abundance of them in Southern California, and thy grow back fast and easily. They also take to soil easily. I say no harm, no foul. (My husband keeps calling me a succulent thief.) :-/
I am super happy with how these turned out! I love the bright colors, and they make me smile, (that’s the point, right?) I hope you have fun making your Spring painted pots! (I used washi tape to accent the top of my ‘dipped’ pot. The possibilities are truly endless).
