Simply paint your base coat and any designs (I’ve added clouds, squiggles or other random decorations), then figure out your layout of photos around the pot. I use basic Modge Podge (I prefer glossy) to adhere the pieces. Once everything is in place, you can add embellishments (stickers work great as do adhesive rhinestones). When everything is in place, cover the entire pot with 2-3 coats of Modge Podge. You’ll need to be careful with the photos and just dab the layers. When the paper gets wet, the colors might run a bit.
Once everything is dry, you can fill the flower pot with small gift items to complete the gift. If you are using it as a centerpiece, fill with whatever you’d like. The recipient of this gift keeps the flower pot in her daughters room and brings it out for a centerpiece every year at the birthday party (Hannah has a big sister who already received a custom pot). I love giving personalized gifts and these are so fun to make.
Bling: I added lots of rhinestone bling accents.
I was inspired by my childhood friend Michelle to create this gift for her beautiful daughter. Using Michelle’s favorite color (and mine) purple was double inspiration.
