Well, here you go dear reader...
First, ya' get yourself a cheapo clay pot. The dollar store carries them in an assortment of sizes for very little coin : a dollar, I believe.
Then you tape up the rim of your planter. You may want to be a bit more careful taping up yours than I was for mine...my rim came out a bit messy (but nothing a little Photoshop couldn't fix).
Then you prime your planter and wait. Paint your planter and wait. Paint one more time and wait.
Then...you get to write/draw/scribble whatever you'd like all over your planter. You can even stick a plant inside if you like. Why the heck not, eh?!
So...here's mine. Ain't she a bute? We wrote "Welcome Abby" on ours as a little surprise for our last dinner guest. I think she thought it was cute. I sure do! You know me and chalkboards.
Now if you thought that was impressive (and, I know you did...I can tell...) just wait until my BIG Project is revealed sometime later this spring!! It's gonna' be a doozy.
