I Made Sparkly Garden Pots

I finally planted my fire-escape garden I’ve had on my Life List for years. I planted in these basic terra cotta pots, which I glittered to make them prettier. If you want some too, you’ll need:

A small paint brush
A bowl in which you are willing to mix glitter and glue
Glitter in whatever color you want
Modge Podge glue, glossy
Masking tape or painter’s tape (I used washi, because I had it)
Some newspaper to protect your work area

Tape off the sections you want to glitter. I found that dramatic triangles that reached near the top of the pot looked the coolest, but you do you.

Mix about half a cup of Modge Podge with a liberal amount of glitter (amounts will vary depending on the size of your glitter flakes. Dump in enough glitter that there are no glitter-free sections when you apply the glue to your pot.

Paint away. Wait a few hours for it to dry, and then peel the tape off.

Wasn’t that so easy? I know! Good work.
