sharpie® marker decorated planters

A Sharpie® permanent marker is just the thing to use when decorating planters. A fast, fun way to add a bright, artful design to complement the plants' soothing greens, Sharpie® Marker Decorated Planters are a cinch to create in about 30 minutes.
Step 1

Paint your pot with acrylic paint and let dry completely.

Step 2

Plan out some simple hand-drawn designs using dots, slanted lines, triangles, circular swirls or any other designs of choice.

Step 3

Draw your customized designs on the planters with various Sharpie® markers. Match bold black with bright, eye-popping brilliant markers for dramatic contrast. Go crazy with
your assorted markers as these planters are your personal canvas. Create patterns around the base and top rim of the planters leaving some white space in the middle.
TIP: Use painter's (or washi) tape on your pot as a straight-line guide for linear patterns.

Step 4

Set aside for a few minutes to dry.
TIP: In a well-ventilated area, spray (or brush) on a light coats of lacquer (or varnish) for a glossy, clearcoat finish. Let dry.

Step 5

Plant your succulents with potting soil and water according to the plant instructions.
TIP: Place the succulents around your home where you'll see and enjoy them every day. If not near windows, simply set your succulents outdoors from time to time for a dose of direct sun.
