DIY in 25: Easy Flower Pot Update
Spring is just around the corner and to say that we are excited would be a drastic understatement. If we’re being honest, we can’t freaking wait!! But while we’re waiting for the lovely flowers to bloom outside, we decided to bring a little botanical love inside with these cute DIY planters. They’re suuuuper easy to make and just in time for Easter! The best part: You can recreate this for under $25 in under 25 minutes. Say whaaaaaat?!
What You’ll Need:
Flower pot + saucer (We used a combination of pre-glazed and terracotta pots from Home Depot)
Fast-drying Polycrylic Glaze
Leftover Walls Need Love Wallpaper and Easy Stripe
Walls Need Love Triangle Mini-Pack Wall Decals
Pre-glazed is definitely the way to go, since half of the work is already done for you. But, if you are using a terra-cotta pot we recommend glazing the pot first so that the decals will stick to the surface. So, first thing's first: glaze that sucker!
Apply a thin layer of glaze to the pot. Let dry. Then apply a second coat. We used a Polycrylic glaze, but you can also get a high-gloss terra-cotta glaze that comes in an easy to apply spray bottle if that's more your style.
While your glazed pot is drying start cutting out your shapes in your left over wallpaper. For a more precise cut, create a stencil to trace on the back of the paper before making any cuts you can't take back. If cutting isn't your thing (call me guilty) then you can use one of our pre-cut Mini-Packs to get a similar look.
Now it's time to start sticking some love on those pots! Feel free to create whatever design you like. We went for a little triangle tribal feel.
For the small little blue and white pot, we used our 1" Easy Stripe in white, but if you can also cut stripes of leftover wallpaper to get the same look.
Final step: add your favorite plant and ta da! Three adorable little flower pots to spruce up your space for Easter.
Seriously, this DIY is SO easy, you could make a whole indoor garden of planters if you wanted.
