For this simple DIY you need:

  • Planters of your choice
  • duct tape
  • acrylic paints of your choice: it largely depends on what pots you are using. Clay would need something else. But i used plastic. So acrylic paints worked fine for me.

Instructions:

  1. Tape the planters in pattern of your choice or just random. Like I did!

Now i have always had difficulty with acrylic paints almost on every material. So in this case too when I used paint brush, it gave me really dreary lines all over with a total yuck effect! So i dropped brush and used cotton swabs instead. As you can see in this picture the different strokes I got while using the two.

Anyone else having this difficulty?!?!

Let me know your solutions or maybe the riight way of using acrylic paints 😀

So cotton swabs are a winner for me!!!

And this is the end result!!!! I looooooove the pop of color and the life they are bringing to these plants! And my window sill!!

I let them dry for a few days!! before peeling the tape off! Well it was more out of procrastination than any other reason. But when I did peel, they were completely dry and whenI peeled them I had to line the tape with a scale where the paint and tape were meeting. Just to separate them, otherwise it was the paint off!!

That is all the work I put into this project!!!

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!
