Crafty April: DIY Personalized Pots
As part of my crafting work for the auction event that I’m preparing for, I customized a few store-bought pots to add to the items for sale. The pots can be used for a windowsill garden or even outside because of the materials I used. Here is one example:
To make the pots, I watered down outdoor, acrylic craft paints and made a design on each alphabet tile. I watered down the paint so that the letters were visible, because the paint is too thick to see through straight from the bottle!
For this pot, I added a coat of green glitter to the letters. Then, I sealed them with outdoor Mod-Podge. Next, I gave the tiles a final coat of outdoor, clear-coat sealant – called urethane (an outdoor version of polyurethane). Finally, I super-glued the tiles onto each pot, holding them firmly in place until the glue formed a bond.
I have a few other designs too — I may post those later this week!
