Spring is here! What better way to greet the season than with a colorful little piece of nature to sit atop your desk? Today, DIY whiz Amy of Homey Oh My! shares with The Stylehouse how to make cheery little plant pots that will brighten up your space.
- Terra-cotta pots
- Acrylic paint
- Foam brush
- Washi tape
- Aluminum foil
- Gold spray paint
- Cactus soil
- Pink aquarium gravel
Step 1: Using the foam brush, apply acrylic paint to the terra-cotta pots. (Make sure to paint the inside of the rim at the top of the pot as well.) After letting the first layer dry, apply a second layer so you get full, opaque coverage.
Step 2: After the paint dries completely, apply washi tape or painters tape about a third of the way up from the bottom of the pot. Cover the top portion of the pot with aluminum foil and tape down the bottom edge. Spray paint the bottom of the pot with gold spray paint. (If your pots have saucers, spray paint those as well.) They should now look something like this:
Step 3: Let the spray paint dry for at least an hour before putting your plants in the pots. Add pink aquarium gravel on top of the soil for a fun pop of color. Now you have your very own fabulous plant pots!
