DIY: patterned flower pots



Like everyone else I've fallen for the succulent trend. They're majorly cute, easy to take care of and for me it's also a bit of a nostalgic thing because I remember we used to keep some in our old apartment when I was a kid. Since I've been collecting these little plants, I haven't been able to find many flower pots for them that I like. So I got myself some plain white ones and made a small DIY project out of them! After all spring is the season to refresh your interior and add new elements to it, right?   

Here's what I used:

3 simple steps:

1. First think of a pattern to use - for inspiration you can always look up "patterns" in Google or Pinterest. My personal favorite and the easiest one to do by hand is a dotty pattern.
2. Next, draw your chosen design on a flower pot in pencil to avoid mistakes.
3. Finish your pattern with a permanent marker and let dry for a while.

Tip: If you should make a mistake, you may try erasing the permanent marker with nail polish remover. The pots I used are made out of bamboo but I think this trick should work on any type of varnished pots.


I know this is basically the easiest DIY ever but it's a great way to recycle old flower pots or add a personal touch to new ones. I got mine at a Dutch shop called Hema, but you can find similar ones (and succulents/cacti too) at Ikea. To keep it minimal, I used a black marker but you can of course use any color you like - silver or golden patterns could also be nice. That's the fun part, you can go any direction you choose with this. Let your creativity run wild! 

Happy DIY-ing & happy Spring to you all!
