Happy Tuesday morning everyone! I am very happy to be a part of the Momenta and Basically Bare swap. I was inspired by the beautiful papers and embellishments of Momenta’s Butterfly Garden collection. I had some wooden flower pots lying around and thought this was the perfect time to use them. Here they are plain, definitely in need of a makeover, right?
I base painted the pots and bottom tray a mustard yellow color first. After thoroughly dry, I traced the pot shape onto Momenta papers and cut out four sides for each pot. I lightly distressed each edge of the paper pieces before adhering them onto the pots, one side at a time. A little bit of ink on each edge gives it a shabby look.
Now it was time to embellish, so I turned to the Basically Bare Blossoms And Leaves set and Bare Basics Small Pennants. I used Green, Pink, and Yellow Zig Painty FX Markers to color them. A few cute Momenta Puffy Borders and tags and bling from The Butterfly Garden Sticker Kit finished off the pots. Love how these turned out!
With the pots finished, I just needed to fill them with some pretty Petunias. Aren’t these sweet? They would make a great neighbor or teacher thank you gift, wouldn’t they? I’m going to keep mine in a sunny spot on my kitchen counter for awhile, they just make me happy!
