Easter Flower Pot

I was so excited to share this post during the Trading Blogs blog swap that I did with Sarah from Adventures of Our Fami-Ly.  Now, I wanted to share it with you if you didn’t get a chance to come visit me over at Sarah’s blog. Did you enjoy her cute no-sew pillow tutorial?

When I was wondering around Hobby Lobby the other day I came across a scratch and dent section that had me in Crafter’s Heaven!  One of my finds was this flower pot that was marked down to $1. 

Why was it marked all the way down to $1?
Oh, because of a little crack:

Did you know that painting a little white school glue on both sides will seal the crack? Or you can melt some candle wax and paste it inside.
How awesome is that?!
Now, you want to make sure that you use a paint brush and brush down the glue so it doesn’t cause a bubble on your pot.
Once the glue dried I painted the pot grey.  Then I decided it was a little dull so I went over it with a Pearl White acrylic paint (both the grey and the pearl were .89 each at HL).  In a surprising twist the Pearl White made the pot look like brushed steel…. pretty cool!
I added a little ribbon but decided it needed something more.

So, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out some grey vinyl (which matched the pot exactly…. yeah me!) and cut out “Happy Easter” and attached the letters to a swatch of fabric.
Finally, I used the hot glue gun to attach the swatch of fabric to the pot.  
Note: I did four little dots of glue (one in each corner of the fabric) so that I can easily pull the fabric off and change it out for another season.
Ta Da!

Now I have a beautiful greenery pot to spruce up the bathroom!
