Valentine’s Day is almost here but it is not too late to make a great gift for somebody you love.
For this project I partnered with Porch.com and valspar paint. They each sent me something to include in this project – 1 gallon of valspar paint in Marsala (the 2015 color of the year) and a fun stencil from Porch.com.
Valentine’s Day Flower Pot
- 6″ Plastic Flower Pots
- Potted Flower
- Marsala Paint
- Foam Brush
- Chalk Ink Marker
Originally I had planned on using the entire stencil to decorate the flower pot; however, I had some issues getting clean lines so I decided to paint the entire pot marsala and then use some bits of the stencil to decorate.
I used a foam brush to paint the entire outside marsala. I didn’t worry about the inside since it would be covered in dirt. The foam brush works well because it leaves less strokes than a bristled brush.
The stencil had some little hearts in it which tied in perfectly to the Valentine’s Day theme. I used a chalkboard pen to put some hearts all over the plant. In the center, I wrote “My Love Blooms For You” which ties into both the flowers and Valentine’s Day.
Once the pot is decorated, fill with dirt and plant the flower inside.
