3 Easy Steps - Instant Personality for Your Plain Pot

The plant in my son's room came in a plain old brown, plastic pot.  Could I have switched it to another pot?  Yes.  But, the plant looked happy in there and I didn't want to tempt fate, so I left it.  But, the plainness (is that a word?!) was begging for a makeover.  Here's a quick and easy way to give any pot personality in three easy steps....  The whole project took an hour, from start to finish, and looks amazing. Plus, this is a great project for kids to practice their cutting skills!

Quick & Easy - Instant Personality for your Plain Pot 

  • Favorite pictures, scrapbook paper, cut-up pages from a children's book, etc. 
  • A plain pot of any material
  • Mod podge
  • Glue stick
  1. Cut out your favorite pictures.  We found our pictures from an old Scrambled States of America book that was missing some pages and ready for the recycle bin.
  2. Using a glue stick, glue on your pictures, covering all of the pot. 
  3. When dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge.  Let it dry (about 15 minutes) and then do a second coat. 
Before - Plain Jane

After - Great Personality!

Enjoy!!! We made this pot great for a kid's room, but this could work for any room, depending on the pictures or paper you select.
