Succulent Planters

It’s that time again…time to share with you this month’s Lowe’s Creator project. The theme this month was “pop of color” and I thought some simple succulent planters would be a perfect touch to our back deck decor.

This project is seriously SOOO easy.  And if you love succulents like I do, this is a fun way to display them in and around your home.  All you need to do is pick up some succulents and clay pots from Lowe’s.  I spray painted the pots with Valspar’s Golden Maize in a Satin finish and then let them dry completely overnight.

Then I used my Cricut Explore machine to cut out the herb names in vinyl lettering which I used as a stencil and stenciled the letters in black paint.  I like doing the stencils rather than just using black vinyl because it gives the word an older, vintage look.  If you don’t have vinyl cutting machine you can stencil the old fashioned way and make your own stencil with an exact-o knife or stick some letter stickers on the pot BEFORE spray painting it your color desired and then peel off the stickers.  (Paint black on the pot before you place the stickers on).

That is seriously all there is to it.  I also took a light sandpaper and kind of roughed up the paint on the pots so that they aren’t totally perfect looking! I love them!  These would also make a fantastic teacher’s gift or Mother’s Day gift!

    I can not believe how timely this is! I took our girls to Lowes on Saturday and we all picked out succulents to bring home. The only problem, they are still sitting in the garage because I don’t know how to display them. This will be perfect.

    don’t get why you planted succulents and then gave herb names on the pots?
