Paint the pot

It's a simple method that can be done very well even with children. You need:

  • Acrylic paints that adhere well to plastic
  • possibly stencils for coloring or sketching
  • Spray paint, matt or glossy, for fixing
  • fine sandpaper

Take a clean flower pot and lightly sand the sides. That way the color lasts better. Choose different motifs or patterns and paint the pot. As soon as the paint has dried, it can be fixed with spray paint.

Pot with stone look

Every plastic planter is suitable for this noble embellishment. All you need is a granite effect spray from the hardware store and a pipe shell to insulate heating pipes, as well as an adhesive that is water and frost resistant.

Take the pipe shell and place it on the edge of the bucket to measure the length. The beginning and end of the pipe shell should touch. Coat the edge of the bucket with glue and slide the pipe shell onto the edge of the bucket. Cover the ends with fabric tape. Now spray the bucket with granite effect spray and let it dry for at least 24 hours. Then the noble “stone tub” can be planted.

Cover the pot

Flower pots are very suitable for sticking. The choice of materials is almost limitless here. For example:

  • Motifs made of paper
  • small branches, birch is very decorative
  • natural or colored pebbles
  • coarse sand
  • Mosaic stones from the hardware store
  • self-made mosaic stones from old tile fragments

Once you have decided on a material, all you need is the right adhesive and then you can start.
