I am slowly trying to get back into the swing of crafting after a summer filled with kids, traveling, family emergencies, and all the drama. Now that my studio is complete and I have officially moved all my supplies in there and set everything up and the kids are heading back to school in a week, I hope that I am able to get back to my crafting ways on a more regular basis. I had the idea for these DIY color blocked tall planters since June, but finally found the time to make it. The funny part is that they take no time at all to make! I love the two tone colors and that one bowl is bigger and one is smaller and that you can use them either way. It’s kind of like two planters in one!
See what I mean? Aren’t they fun?! And I am sure you can tell that they are just two bowls stacked on each other, but it’s such an easy way to create a unique shaped planter!
Materials to make your own DIY Color Blocked Tall Planters:
- Bowls of similar shapes and two different sizes. (these are from IKEA)
- Spray paint in two colors
- Gorilla glue epoxy
- Gold paint pen (optional for rim of planter)
Begin by spray painting your bowls with your choice of colored spray paint. Any brand will work. Once the paint is dry, mix up the epoxy according to the package directions and apply to the rim of the smaller bowl. Press the small bowl on the upside down large bowl to attach the two bowls. Leave the epoxy to cure for 1hr.
Next, use the fold paint pen to rim the edges of the planters.
Once the glue is fully cured, your planters are ready for their plants. Add rocks to the bottom, then dirt, then your plants for some cute new ways to display your green friends.
