HOW TO MAKE CUSTOM FLOWER POTS FOR MOM
I made a quick video to show you how I used Plutonium to paint plain flower pots so that they are as colorful and lovely as the flowers I planted inside them. I publish two videos a week on my YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any of the fun!
MAKING CUSTOM FLOWER POTS FOR MOM
This is what the plain terracotta pots looked like after just one coat of paint. Terracotta soaks up paint pretty well, so you may need to apply multiple coats for an opaque finish.
You can choose to repot the flowers in the new pots or to place the grow pots directly inside of the terracotta pots.
ADDING CUSTOM GARDEN STAKES TO THE FLOWER POTS
I picked up unpainted suncatchers and a wooden dowel from a big box store to make the MOM plant markers. The Ms are actually Ws that I used upside down so I didn’t have to worry about cutting the round hanger off of the top of the letter. I used spray paint to paint the back of each letter and the dowels (which I had cut to length). Then I attached the letters to the dowels with super glue. Fast and easy!
This is a relatively fast and easy handmade gift to make for Mother’s Day, and it’s sure to be one she appreciates. You could easily use this same idea for a Teacher Appreciation gift or even as table markers for a bridal shower or wedding reception.
