Add Glamour To Your Flower Pots!


I was recently inspired by the "gold-dipped" trend that is happening right now, and realized that the same could be done to plain ol' flower pots. I've also become a bit obsessed with stenciling, so I combined the two and came up with a very simple and easy way to add a bit of love to your flower pots. A coat of Rustoleum Gold paint and some handy painter's tape-work creates an amazing focal point on your patio. This would also make for great gifts!
I bought two pots at the dollar store, and then gathered my stencils, spray paint, and painter's tape.
