We are finally starting to have some sunny days, and it’s got me dreaming of spring. I made these cute Sharpie dot DIY flower pots with the kids, and they turned out great! I’ve seen this technique used to decorate ceramic mugs, and I thought it would look really cute on a flower pot.
It’s so easy, and all you need are letter stickers and an oil-based Sharpie. The kids can spell out their own names, or the name of a teacher or friend to give as a gift. You could even spell out the names of different herbs and use them to make a little herb garden!
Supplies needed to make these DIY flower pots:
- white, ceramic flower pots – found these at the craft store
- letter stickers
- oil-based Sharpie(s)
- optional: rubbing alcohol
- optional: cotton swabs
Place the letter stickers on your pot to spell a name or word. It’s best to have thick letter stickers for this, if you can find them. You could also use some cute shape stickers for this part.
Use your Sharpie to make dots all around the letters.
Make the dots close together around the stickers, and fade them out as you get further away. You can use one color like we did or have fun with a bunch of different colors.
Wait for the ink to dry and then peel off the stickers.
Inevitably, you will have a little ink that leaks under the stickers. No problem, just wipe it off with a little rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab.
And you’re done! Easy right?!
We put some pretty succulents in our pots, that are perfect for our hot California summer. Ugh… maybe I don’t want the weather to get warmer… Summer is not my friend.
Hope you enjoyed these DIY flower pots. Be sure to check out these other fun kids crafts.
