easy spring diy | floral plant pot


I've been a bit slow with this post and have been sat on the photos (not literally) for about a month, but finally had time to sit down and write it up! This is a really simple and easy spring DIY, a floral decoupage plant pot! It will only take about 30 minutes and the hardest bit is waiting for it to dry. You can do so many patterns with this one as it's all about the napkins!

YOU WILL NEED:

-Floral (or any) patterned napkins.
-Mod Podge (or PVA)
-A sponge brush.
-Plant pot.
-Gloves and seeds are optional, I planted mine but you can just add a fully grown plant.


STEP ONE:

The first step is the take one of your napkins and take the two sheets apart so that you only have the sheet with the pattern printed on it, this makes it thinner and easier to apply! Then you want to rip the napkin into bits, not too big, not too small. It will all depend on the size of your plant pot and the pattern on your napkin.




STEP TWO:

Simply apply some Mod Podge to your plant pot and start applying the napkin strips, make sure to press the edges down and smooth over with a little Mod Podge. Just keep going until you have covered the whole plant pot and are sure there are no gaps. Cover the whole thing in a thin layer of Mod Podge to make it more weather resistant and then pop it in the sun or near some heat to dry.




THAT'S IT! Just 2 easy steps and your new spring plant pot is complete! You could even decorate smaller plant pots and use them to store kitchen utensils or pens! So many possibilities.
