{This is all you need! Spray paint is easiest, but any type of acrylic paint will do.}

{Once painted, let your pots dry completely before applying the Gold leaf.}

{Apply washi tape (or painters tape) to section off the area you’d like to Gold Leaf. Then apply a thin layer of glue so the Gold Leaf can stick.}

{Voila! Once you’re done Gold Leafing the shapes you dreamt up, you’ll be ready to plant your succulents.}

{What do you think? So much prettier than the lame old clay pots, right?}

{If you plan to keep your pots inside, you’re done! If you plan to display them outside, make sure you spray the pots with a clear sealant first to weather proof!}

It’s Spring…and Spring makes me think of pretty plants…and pretty plants, naturally, make me think of dope DIYs! You follow me? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, back to DIY-ing. I’ve been looking forward to sprucing up my plain clay pots for a while now, and this past weekend the weather was nice enough to venture outside for a little spray painting. I went to my local garden shop and purchased a few adorable succulents/cacti (easy to take care of – I’m no green thumb by any means!) and got to work! I’m really happy with how they turned out, what do you think?!
