You will need an old ceramic flower pot, scrapbook paper, decoupage, sponges, and polyacrylic finish. You can also add any embellishments you want for an added touch of fun!
1-Clean the pot and cut your paper
First, be sure to clean all of the dirt off of the pot and dry it. Cut the scrapbook paper into strips to decorate the pot. Try cutting them in a fun pattern to add an extra personal touch to your flower pot.
2-Add the decoupage
Using your sponge, add the decoupage to the pot and then add a piece of paper over it and layer some more decoupage on top of the scrapbook paper that was added to the pot. Repeat that step and add it to the entire pot. Layer the paper to create a more interesting pattern.
3-Add polyacrylic finish
Let the glue dry overnight and make sure that it’s dry the next day before painting over it with the polyacrylic finish. Let that completely dry before planting flowers in the planter.
