DIY: Large Painted Flowerpot

Final Product + Flower

Items needed: 
  • Spray Paint
  • Terracotta Pot
  • Soil
  • Plant/Flower

How to:
-This is actually an incredibly easy project. Go to your local dollar store and find the flower pot, bottom, and soil. Then you should be able to find the paint at Walmart, and you can get all kinds of flowers from your local grocery store(I got mine from Sobeys). 

-Once you have all of your items, go outside (don't do this inside unless the area is well ventilated), then  follow the instructions on the spray can, make sure you do thin coats, if you get too close or spray too much, the paint will start dripping and that's no good. 

-Once the pot is dry get the soil and put some in the bottom. Get your flower and take it out of the pot-like thing its in. With the smaller flower I broke off as much of the soil it was already in as I could so it would have lots of new soil, but since this was such a large pot I just stuck it in the middle. Then fill in the soil around the plant until its even will the top and its as high as you want it to be. 
That should be it!

Good luck! This one is fun!
