Mother’s Day is coming up soon. Don’t you think Mom deserves a handmade gift this year? You can create these spray painted flower pots in less than half an hour and the results are so pretty! I am thrilled to be working with Plutonium Paint again! I’ve been a fan of their paint for years, and I love sharing products that I adore with you guys. The new and exciting Plutonium Paint news is that they have opened an online store, so you can get your hands on their paint even if there isn’t a retailer near you. They offer discounts for bulk purchases AND shipping is free.
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!
I picked out Plutonium colors to match the flowers I bought for my mom. From left to right, the colors are: Vegas, Purple Haze, and LaLa.
This is what the plain terracotta pots looked like after just one coat of paint. It honestly took me all of 10 minutes to do all the spray painting, and since Plutonium dries in 3 minutes the whole project was lightning fast.
The paint dries to a hard matte finish which is durable against chipping and scraping. It’s also mold, mildew, and fade resistant, so the pots can withstand being outdoors if that’s where Mom chooses to display them.
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 Plutonium 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. L
