I have a really quick and easy (and cute!) DIY project for you today. Perfect for a last minute handmade Mother’s Day gift. They have such sweet little succulents in the garden department at Lowe’s, and I wanted to make an equally pretty container for this little one we picked up the other day. You know me, I always have glitter and mod podge around, so I decided to glitter up a tiny terra cotta pot.
You will need:
:: small plant (I chose a succulent)
:: small terra cotta pot (mine is 2″ in diameter, the smallest size they had at JoAnn Fabrics)
:: mod podge
:: glitter (I love Martha Stewart Glitter)(affiliate link)
:: paint brush
Brush mod podge all over your pot.
Cover with glitter and let dry.
Insert your plant…all done!
Look how cute and teeny and glittery!
Now I want to go get several of these guys and do more pots in different pastel colors…
Linking up to some of these parties.
Not sure if you’re aware, but shelterness.com has taken all of your photos and summarized your tutorial and presented it on their site…
Thank you for letting me know! I will contact her.
Featuring YOU today! :)
