Easy DIY Flower Pot Art

DIY Flower Pot Art Header

Hi, Crafters! It’s Erin, back this month from The Blue Eyed Dove. One of my favorite spring traditions is planting flowers. I’m not much of a garden person {the thought of seeing a snake while digging around in the dirt terrifies me!}, but I sure do enjoy getting out my flower pots and adding some life to them with flowers. A few years ago I got tired of looking at my colorful flowers in brown, and orange pots and decided it was time to spruce them up a bit too. So today, I thought I’d share one of my easy flower pot makeovers with you.


  • Flower Pot
  • Spray Paint
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Painters Tape
  • Paint Brush

FLower Pot Art How-To


1. Apply spray paint as your base coat onto the flower pot. Allow paint to dry. {Note: My flower pot was already all white, and I decided to keep the top edge white.}

2. Next, use painters tape to block off the area(s) you wish to keep a certain color. Then apply your second spray paint color. Allow paint to dry and remove tape carefully.

3. Use acrylic paint to add your design. {Note: You will probably need to add a few coats of paint here since acrylic paint is thin.}

That’s it!

Oh, and of course you’ll want to add some flowers once the paint dries 😉

Happy June!

  1. Thank you for sharing these cute and unique flower pots! I’m looking to brighten up my patio with some pots of flowers and I’ll have to try out this craft. Do you know if acrylic paint will hold up through rain?

    • Glad you liked the flower pot, Eliza! I left my pot outside on my outdoor patio all summer long. I used acrylic paint for the design and it seemed to hold up fine all season long. I’m sure over time the sun will cause it to fade, but then you just get repaint it again 😉

  2. Making your flower pot look unique is a fun way to individualize you home a bit. I really like like how you used a few colors on your pot to make it look more creative. Your final product of your planted flower in the pot looks very cute, I would love to get some creative pots.
