We are finally seeing signs of summer approaching and saying goodbye to winter. The first day of spring came and I couldn’t get my hands on spring flowers for my home and garden fast enough. As much as I love gardening outside, I wanted to add some spring flair to the inside of my home. I don’t have the best track record with flowers, so I started with succulents that will give me a better chance for a green thumb. With new succulents, I also needed new flower pots!
I bought a few colorful pots from my local Home Depot with plans of adding gold foil circle labels to give them an extra special touch. I can’t wait to share how you can decorate new flower pots and transform them into a piece of home decor while adding greenery in today’s blog post!
Gold Foil 0.5″ Circles
Gold Foil 0.75″ Circles
Gold Foil 1.5″ Circles
Flower Pots – Home Depot has colored ones. If you can’t find colored ones, you can always spray paint the pots.
Step 1- Using your desired gold foil labels, place them in a pattern on your pots. To create the following scallop look, use a ruler and a dull pencil to draw a line down the center of the circles. A pencil shows less on the label versus using a pen.
Step 2- Cut your circles in half in order to create the scallop look on your pot.
Step 3- Using the edge of the pot, evenly stick the half circles around the edge of the pot. You may have to overlap the last label when the two ends meet. I used the 1.5″ circles on the top and the .75″ circles along the bottom.
Step 4- Once you’ve placed your labels on the pots, firmly press each label to make sure they are all flat and smooth.
Step 5- To prevent the labels from peeling off in the future, use a foam brush to apply modge podge all over the pots. It will dry clear and provide a protective coat.
Step 6- Once the modge podge fully dries, you’re ready to plant your flowers and display your new home decor!
This is the perfect DIY project for a spring afternoon that doesn’t take long at all. This project took about 1 hour, which includes the drying time, from start to finish. I’ll be decorating my home office, kitchen, and screened-in patio with these festive flower pots! Have fun creating your own!
