Easy Potted Plant Decor

One thing you should know about me is that I am not a plant person!  I know very little about plants and flowers and desperately need help with our landscaping!  I am very slowly getting more knowledgeable on the subject thanks to my dad and my mother-in-law, but I’m definitely no pro!

That’s why this project is totally my speed!

While I’m still learning with the real stuff, I thought I’d have a little “fake it” moment and cheat for a minute!  Shhh…don’t tell!  :)

Instead of trying to keep another plant alive, I decided it would be best to go with an artificial plant for this project!  :)

Here’s how to put it together…

Supplies:

Paintable pot

Artificial potted herb

Circle stencil and colored pencil

Paint and paint brush

Sandpaper

Plastic bags

River stones

How to:

1. Cut out a circle shape and trace it onto your pot with a colored pencil (I used a circle paper punch to make my stencil)

2. Paint inside of your circles with chalk paint or craft paint.

3. Let paint dry and then use a little sandpaper to distress it a bit.

4. Fill pot part way with plastic bags.  This will help to fill the pot without having to use a ton of the heavy stones.

5. Place your plant into the pot and fill with river stones.

That’s it!  See!  So easy and it still brings a little freshness and style to your decor!

And want to know a little secret?  I only painted circles on half of the pot, so if I ever choose to change up the design, I can just turn it around and use the other side!  Brilliant, right?!  ;)  I like to think so!  Haha!
