Step 1: Go to Lowe’s and gather your supplies. You are going to need the following:
$0.78 - Pot
$0.78 - Saucer
$3.13 each - 3 paint samples. All you have to do is go pick out the paint colors from the color wall at Lowe's and then ask for samples in each color.
$3.98 -Plants. I chose to use succulents because I wanted this to spruce up the interior of my apartment. However, you could use whatever plants you like. I did a similar project with impatiens.
$3.93 - Painters Tape (optional):
$0.99 – Paint Brush
Free – Dirt (go dig some up from the backyard J)
TOTAL - $23.43 total with plenty of paint left over for more projects!
Step 2: Use the painter’s tape to create your designs. Make sure the tape is pressed all the way down so you don’t have any paint running under the tape.
Step 3: Paint!
Step 4: Remove painter’s tape and complete design. You may need to use a smaller paintbrush to touch up any wonky areas.
Step 5: Once your paint dries, use the topcoat spray to seal your design
Step 6: Dig up some dirt and plant your plants!
Step 7: Enjoy the pop of spring and feeling like an accomplished adult while staying on a budget!
