Whether you have a backyard or just a tiny patio creating color is easy to do. The easiest way to do this is with plants. For me, flowers bring such joy to see and be around. The second way is through painting flower pots colors or doing artwork on them, the list is endless. You do not need to be an artist either. I will show you several ideas that you can do.
I painted these flower pots white first. I printed out the pictures from the pictures I found online. I used Modpodge to put the artwork on the flower pots and once they were dry, I did a wash of a darker color to make them look old.
This group of pots was painted white and then the tops were wrapped in jute. It is quick and easy to do this style of a flower pot. I used acrylic paint.
This group of pots is done in acrylic paints and sealed with ModPodge. For the smaller pots, I did the artwork with permanent markers and then sealed them. Note: I would use an outdoor sealer to protect the flower pots. ModPodge tends to stick when it gets wet and the paint starts to peel off.
Obviously not the best picture. I painted the flower pot a sage color acrylic paint and then drew the flower on with glow-in-the-dark paint. It is a great idea but it only glows for about an hour after the sun goes down. Still on the lookout for good glow-in-the-dark paint.
This group of flower pots I painted with blue outdoor paint. Followed by permanent marker artwork. It will be sealed with an outdoor sealer as well. It is late in the season, but I would love to do a batch of flower pots out of cement. I try to come up with different ideas every spring. Have fun and be colorful. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
