Brighten Up Your Home Garden with These DIY Flower Pots

If you are looking to spice up your back patio or garden this summer, we’ve got some fun and easy DIY pots for you to try. These little guys are a perfect whimsical touch to brighten up your outdoor space! Read on for the simple steps to recreate these planter pots with some of the most popular trends this season!

Watermelon Flower Pot

Step 1 – Paint your pot the two base colors, red and green. We mixed some red and a little bit of pink together to get our perfect watermelon shade. Once you’ve got your perfect red, paint the bottom of the pot and then finish with green around the rim. You will more than likely have to do a couple coats to get the best coverage.

Step 2 – Grab a smaller round brush to paint on the seeds. Your aim is to make them kind of tear drop shaped, but you want them to be a variety of sizes. Sporadically place them around the entire bottom part of the pot.

Step 3 – This step is optional but if you want to seal the paint onto your pot a great way to do that is to use Mod Podge. Put a nice even coat over your pot once all of the paint has completely dried.

Pineapple Flower Pot

Step 1 – Paint your pot the two base colors. Paint yellow on the bottom and then green around the rim. For the yellow, we mixed a little orange in with the yellow to get the shade that we wanted. You will more than likely have to do a couple coats to get the most even coverage.

Step 2 – For the Pineapple pot you are going to grab a smaller thin brush, flatten the brush, dip the end into the black paint and start pressing out lines in the shape of diamonds. Each diamond will be 4 simple lines, you will make a v on the bottom and then an upside down v. The diamonds will connect and make a pattern.

Step 3 – This step is optional but if you want to seal the paint onto your pot a great way to do that is to use Mod Podge. Put a nice even coat over your pot once all of the paint has completely dried.

Cactus Flower Pot

Step 1 – Grab a pencil and sketch out your cacti pattern all around your pot. I made mine a variety of sizes and modified the shape a little, but that was just my preference.

Step 2 – Grab a white paint pen and draw over your pencil sketches.

Step 3 – Grab a short dense paint brush and go over each sketch to darken them up.

Step 4 – This step is optional but if you want to seal the paint onto your pot a great way to do that is to use Mod Podge. Put a nice even coat over your pot once all of the paint has completely dried.

So, what do you think? What’s your favorite fun summer pattern or trend
