This was a pretty plain gray pot before I started. It also had a strange texture and while I plan to seek out better faux succulents and pots in the future this was a good trial plant to start with.
This whole project is very quick, affordable, and can easily be something the kiddo can participate in.
- Small Pot (Succulent Optional)
- Paint Brushes
- Acrylic Paint (Dries Faster)
- Masking Tape
- Painting Tray (Old Plate/ Or Paper Plate)
- Water Cup for Paint
- Something to Cover Crafting Space
- Gloss Sealer (Optional)
- Make sure your crafting space is covered to keep paint from making a mess everywhere
- Give pot a quick wipe with damp cloth to make sure it's clean - allow to dry
- Paint your pot what ever color your want then allow it to fully dry.
- Then peel strips of tape and place into triangles on your pot, lightly press, then paint open area like shown above. You don't have to use Turtle Tape. It's just what I already had on hand. I love this stuff. It's pricy but you WILL get great results every time! Don't rush, do one section at a time and carefully peel the tape off when each area is dry. I finished my whole pot in about 1 1/2 hrs. Maybe a bit longer but I also had a daughter sitting right next to me drawing, who also loves to show me her pictures step by step in the making lol!
Lastly when you are done you can paint or spray a glossy sealant over it. Like modpodge or an art spray. I had a glossy art spray on hand. This total project cost me $3.50
Take Care & Enjoy,
