DIY Flower Pots

I have been on a long and exhausting search for a cheap, cute flower pot (this may be a slight exaggeration, it was about a day). I searched and searched and couldn’t find anything I liked, in a price that I liked. So, obviously, I had to result to gold. As you know, I have a bit of a love affair with gold (see here and here), and I decided that my plants should get to enjoy some gold too. These flower pots are super easy to make and look great.

Materials: flower pot and gold paint pen (I got both at Michael’s)

First, I came up with a pattern and drew it on paper, so I could figure out exactly what I wanted to do and to practice the design. Then I just drew the pattern on the pot free hand. I prefer a more natural, organic look, but if you prefer straighter lines, you can tape sections off. I chose a geometric pattern since my flower pot will be holding a pencil cactus, but you can do whatever your heart desires.Β  photo copy 3

And that’s it! Easy, right? I’ll share another photo in a few weeks once I get my cactus in there.
