DIY: Jeweled Planters
May 28, 2009
It’s my belief that ordinary objects can transform into something quite glamorous with some thoughtful accessories. So why not give your flowers a bit of glitz as well? Your blooms work hard to give you a show, so give them the gift of their own jewelry. Glass marble jewelry, that is.
This planter makes a gorgeous statement, on a wedding table, surrounding your orchids, or adding glamour to your outdoor table.
How to Make a Jeweled Planter:
Inexpensive terra cotta planter(s)
Outdoor spray paint
Glass marbles (with flat side) from craft store
Silicone rubber sealant or epoxy glue from hardware store
Step One: Spray paint your terra cotta planters with some outdoor spray paint and allow to dry. I use a beautiful shade of cream by Rustoleum called ‘Heirloom White’.
Step Two: Attach your glass marbles with silicone rubber sealant. This product is waterproof and will withstand outdoor abuse.
Silicone sealant takes about 24 hours to cure, but after that, your ‘jewels’ will stay on regardless of moisture.
This DIY project makes your planters look like they’re wearing jewelry!
