Painting flower pots is one of the easiest ways to decorate them! And as long as you seal them properly once the paint is dry, they should last for years!
If you want, start by painting a design on the flowerpot. I painted the word, “HERBS” on the pot I’m going to plant parsley in. The other pot was painted by my daughter with a giant yellow sun, since "all plants need the sun!" Let the paint dry for a couple hours.
Next, it’s time to get the silk flowers ready for gluing. This is actually fun because kids get to pull or yank the flower heads off the plastic stems and they won’t get in trouble. Most of the time they slide right off. Then carefully snip off the plastic tip. You want the flower you’re gluing on to the pot to have a flat surface.
White glue works but we found low-temp glue guns to work way better. Just hold the flower on for about a minute and when you let go it should just stick there. Repeat this with however many flowers you want to use.
The last and probably most important step is to spray an acrylic paint sealer over your creation!
Stick a plant inside your newly decorated pot and watch it grow. Mother’s Day is this Sunday and this is a fun gift to give to your mother or grandmother too. There’s always something extra special about giving a gift you have made all by yourself. It’s one of a kind and I’m sure it will make someone special smile!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
