DIY Pasta Patterned Planter

filed under

It’s a DIY pasta patterned planter! Say that 3 times fast! A few days ago I saw these gorgeous pasta dessert stands on Handmade Charlotte and was immediately obsessed. They almost look like knit sweaters! I knew I needed to try my had at using pasta to create patterns too and created a cute little stand planter using bowtie pasta. It turned out so adorable I can’t even stand it. And honestly it wasn’t that time consuming of a project. Maybe a little strange for some to glue pasta onto a bowl, but it’s so darn cute!

See?! Cuteness overload! It helped that I found the perfect base in the Target dollar spot with these gold accented votive holders. But who knew pasta could be so stylish?


– Mini bowtie pasta (or any other shape you like and think would translate well to a pattern)
– Super glue (I tried E6000, but it was too runny and the pasta wouldn’t stay in place and hot glue stuck but the pasta popped off easily)
– Small bowl and cup combo that have the same size bases (this bowl is from Ikea and the base is a votive holder I found in the Target dollar spot)
– Spray paint

Begin by gluing your pasta onto the bowl using the super glue. Try a few different patterns on your work surface to get a pattern that you like. After a few tries, I ended up going with a lined up mini bowtie pasta pattern.

Once the pasta is glued on and the glue is dry, take the bowl outside and place it on a lift (like an old spray paint bottle) and spray paint it. Let dry. If you can’t find a cute patterned base, just spray paint a plain glass cup a corrdinating color. Once all your pieces are dry, use E6000 or super glue to attach the bowl to the upside down cup and let the glue cure for 24 hours. Then your DIY pasta patterned planter is ready to fill with dirt, decorative rocks, and a plant of your choice!

    I know that I am probably asking a stupid question but did you drill a hole into the bowl and cup for water drainage from watering the plant you put in your pot??

    I didn’t. But the container is so small that it dries out really well between watering s so I didn’t need drainage. But you definitely could if you think it out be an issue for your plants.
