Begin by painting your pots yellow. Give them a good 2-3 coats for the best color and coverage. I allowed my pots to dry in between coats to ensure I was covering the play pot completely

I then gave my pots another 2 coats of paint, using the glossy glitter paint. I loved the added shine and sparkle that it gave the pots.
Once the pots were completely dry, I grabbed my small brush and started making random little "V" shaped marks all around the pot.
After the pot was dry, I took one of the potted plants and squeezed around the outside of the plastic pot it came in, to loosen all the soil. I removed the plant and placed it into my new pineapple flower pot. I then used the remaining soil in the pot to fill up around the top of the pot and base of the plant. I cleaned my pot off and placed my new little pineapple flower pot out in the sun to catch some rays.
I hope you enjoy this summer craft! Visit the Blog for more on this project: http://www.timeoutwithmom.com/2016/05/pineapple-flower-pots.html
