Looking for an easy DIY for your spring decor? These DIY indoor planter pots take about 30 minutes to make and are perfect for spring flowers.
Just in case you don’t live in Texas?
It’s snowing here.
The roads are covered with ice topped off with a layer of snow and trees are loaded down with icicles and the schools are closed and the weather outside is generally frightful.
Good thing the freezer is stocked with broccoli crust pizza.
Because no one is going anywhere.
I’m inside watching the snow fall and cheering on the skiers on television and dreaming of spring.
I had a few supplies on hand and made some indoor planter pots for my spring flowers.
These terra cotta pots look like this.
I was laughing when I took these pictures.
Snow outside the window and spring flower pots on the table.
Talk about optimistic. 🙂
The best part about these indoor planter pots? They are SO easy to make.
Here’s the step-by-step DIY.
DIY Indoor Planter Pots for Spring
(here are some with saucers if you are using real plants)
Here’s a close-up of the beads that I used.
I made them work and glued the sides with the holes together because that’s what I had here at the house. If I did this craft on a day without snow, I’d probably use wood balls instead.
I linked both in the supplies section.
Also, I need to add saucers to these small pots after the snow melts so I can water them.
Step 1: Glue the beads onto the pot
This is such a simple craft.
If you blink you might miss it.
Put a row of hot glue on the rim of the pot and glue the beads in place. Make sure you use enough hot glue to stabilize the beads.
Step 2: Continue to glue until you cover the rim of the pot
If you are using beads, match the edges of them together so the holes don’t show.
You can add a drop of glue inside the hole to make it disappear once you paint it.
Keep gluing until the entire rim is covered with beads.
You’ll want to keep an eye on the spacing when you get to the end of the rim.
Step 3: Paint the pots
You can use white acrylic paint to completely cover the pot.
I also think that spray paint might be even better, but it was too cold to spray paint the pots so I painted them inside.
Here are a couple of planter pot painting tips:
- use a large flat brush to paint the planter pot
- use a q-tip to get into the cracks between the beads
- make sure to smooth out the brush strokes on the pot by painting in one direction
- paint a coat and let it dry
- then touch up any places that need a second coat
- you can seal the planter pot with clear acrylic spray
Let the pots dry and you are ready for flowers.
I LOVE THEM.
I was only going to make one and kept going until I ran out of beads and made four.
And the best part?
The ratio of time spent to the cuteness of this craft? It’s such a good investment. 🙂
Here’s to snow days and spring flowers.
PS One quick note: I used real flowers I was going to put outside so I am going to add painted white saucers after the snow melts.
