Cute DIY Flower Pot Ideas

Cute DIY Flower Pot Ideas

Spring is on its way in, and it’s time to dress up those flower pots. Why settle for plain containers when you can dress up your flower pots? A few DIY bloggers have created awesome DIY decorated containers, and I wanted to tell you about them. These are just a few examples, but they may help inspire you to do your own DIY project. Go wild and use all of your creativity!

Chalkboard Flower Pots: Is there anywhere that chalkboard paint can’t go? You can label your pots easily, as well as give them a trendy edge, by painting them with chalk board paint. Learn how on Confessions of a Plate Addict.

French Metal Pots: You can make pots like the ones that Diana from Dreams Factory posted. You’ll need a good stencil and some paint, as well as vintage galvanized steel buckets. This is a perfect project if you have found some metal containers at the thrift or flea market that you just don’t know what to do with.


Bubble Gum Machine Flower Pots: This project just goes to show that you can make a flower pot out of almost anything. Two gumball machines became charming planters. What fun!
