Pretty Potted Plants

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Omg guys this week has seriously been so freakin long... and it's only Wednesday!  We have had some of our pricing managers in town so as a sales rep you are busy busy running around to accounts and dinners!  Today was the first night I got home before 7:00!  Now don't get me wrong that isn't all that bad, but when you have a DIY you want to do all you can think about is getting home when the sun is up to craft your little hear out.

Now I first found this little DIY on Pinterest... here is the pin.  I searched for a tutorial but never found one.  After I came up with mine I did find the original owner of the Pin, and she made these for a bridal shower.  You can see the full shower here, and the creative behind the original idea was Courtney Ortiz!  Love these I just had to make my own for my spare "girly room"!

What you need:

Spray Paint (I used gold)
Terra Cotta Pots and Saucer ( I got mine at Michael's but they are cheaper at Home Depot)
Plants (I used succulents and a Cactus)
Potting Soil
Aquarium rocks, (for teal I had to pick it out of the multi colored bag) my rocks are actually from PetSmart but these are much less expensive!

Step 1
First thing you want to do is spray paint your pots to your desired color.  Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area, and cover your work area so that the paint does not go on any unwanted area.  Now let dry.

Step 2
Inspect your pots to ensure they are covered to your liking.  Once that is done fill your pot with some dirt and plant your plant.  Make sure to leave a little room at the top to add the rocks.  I left between a 1/2 and 1/4 inch.

Step 3
Add the aquarium rocks to the top, a thin layer to cover should be fine.

Step 4
Enjoy!  I love how simple this DIY was and it is perfect to spruce up any office, room, or even give out as a cute party favor!!
