Painted Flower Pot
Hi everyone! Today I have a creative project to share with you that you can easily pass along to someone else. I love when we can spend time being creative and inspired and are also left with a handmade gift we can give ourselves or a friend.
This project is all about the new western collection, Boots and Saddle by Canvas Corp. Have you seen it? I am such a color lover and these colors are much more rich and deep than what I would normally gravitate toward. And I am absolutely loving them. The paints in this collection are simply gorgeous, the papers beautifully designed.
We’re going to use a little of everything from the collection to make our own painted flower pots! Let’s start by gathering our supplies. You’ll need a plain terra cotta flower pot, burlap of your choice, Tattered Angels paint in a variety of colors, and the printed card stock paper paper. You’ll also be using a hot glue gun or liquid glue like Beacon’s 3 in 1 and scissors.
First, choose a favorite paper (I picked Chocolate and Ivory Feathers Rev, Boots ‘n Saddle Words, Kraft & Black Barbed Wire and Rust & Ivory French Stripe to cut out for the sides of your flower pot. Cut out small pieces to fit around the outside of your flower pot, like stripes. I cut three pieces of the stripe paper and hot glued them onto the sides of the pot. I also added a strip of the barbed wire paper around the top of the flower pot too.
Now you’re ready to paint! I used Decor & DIY Paint – Scarlet, Decor & DIY Paint – Violet, High Impact Navy Blue, and High Impact Pink! This is the most fun part because you get to embellish the plain parts of the flower pot anyway you like! I added mini pink dots to the very top of the pot, a purple stripe between the two papers, and red lines in-between the rust paper pieces. The sky is the limit here! You could even add some paint onto the paper on the pot if you wanted!
The last step is to cut out your favorite word or phrase from the Western Collection paper with all the sayings on it. I layered “Happy Trails Y’all” on top of the brown feather paper and glued them onto a stick.
This will be inserted into your plant in the pot, for a cheerful marker and message! For a bit of an extra fun touch I also tied strips of burlap in-between the signs on the stick.
After your pot is completed add a plant inside. I used succulents, in keeping with the Western Theme. I think this would be adorable to give as a hostess gift or simply to a friend! These would also be super fun to make on a craft night with your friends!
Motivated to create a painted and paper flower pot, we hope so, we sure are!!!!
