LITTLE CRAFTY THING
School is just around the corner, which starts a domino effect of occasions, and we’ll be needing good gift ideas soon. Whether you put a plant or pencils in it, why not gift a personalized pot?
“Three Ways to Dress Up a Potted Plant Gift,” inspired by “Handcrafted Gifts,” from Make It Yourself & The Meredith Corporation, 2017:
Add texture to your container by arranging and gluing hex nuts in a pattern on the sides of your planter pot. Paint them before to create contrast or use spray paint after gluing to create an industrial monochrome effect.
Paint it Pretty!
Using painter’s tape, create an asymmetrical or geometric design on your pot. Make sure to secure your tape with some pressure. Paint with a multi-surface craft paint, let dry. Next, remove the painter’s tape and add a second color.
Give it an owner’s touch!
Completely customize this pot with stencils. Use stencils to layout a house number, classroom number, name, or even monogram. Using spray paint, apply your customization. Use light coats, and don’t be afraid to use multiple coasts to achieve your desired shade.
