paint pour planter

The Crafty Lumberjacks have done it again! Dennis & Andrew will help you turn a plain clay pot into a snow drifted gifted dream with paint pour! Gift the pot with a faux tree or a real plant to have up year-round.

Step 1

Prepare your surface with a paper plate (or parchment paper).
TIP: Be sure to have a few paper plates (or parchment paper) to protect your working surface as well as to catch paint.

Step 2

Place one of the paint bottles on top of your protected working surface, then place your pot, upside-down, on top of the bottle.
TIP: This keeps the pot off of the protected table and allows the excess paint to run off the pot so can dry evenly around the edges.

Step 3

Layer the paints together in one cup by gently pouring the paint down the side so they don't over mix.
TIP: The more layers you add into the cup the more intricate the pour will look.

Step 4

Pour the paint slowly on top of the upside-down pot until the whole pot is covered.

Step 5

Drag a craft stick around the edge of the lip to wipe it clean. Let it dry fully for at least 24 hours before touching.​

Step 6

Paint the saucer with a coat of Gold paint for an extra pop. Add a second coat of paint if needed. Let dry.

Step 7

Place a faux evergreen plant or a living potted plant inside the pot.
