For this super cool DIY you're only going to need:
  • Flower pot (I got mine from ikea)
  • Paint brush
  • Black marker
  • Black & white paint

  • ying yang flower pot
The first things you want to do is go on your phone or computer and look up ying yang designs so you have something to go after, because quite frankly, trying to resemble a ying yang design is kind of difficult.
Anyway, what I did was I went to Google and searched for "ying yang".

Now take your sharpie and draw a "wavy" line on both sides of the flower pot.

After that, draw a small circle on both sides of the line (do the same on the back)
  • ying yang flower pot
Fill in one with black and leave the other one white. You can use real paint or a sharpie.

Use some black acrylic paint to paint one side of the "wave"/line black. The reason why both circles are white in the picture above is because I decided to fill one in with paint instead of sharpie. (The circle on the other side is filled in with sharpie)

So I painted the white circle side in black paint and left the other one untouched. If your pot is an ugly white or isn't white at all, paint the other side as well.
