Spring Flower Pots

With as warm as the weather has been, it almost feels like we're skipping spring. But I'm not letting that happen! I love spring and all its beautiful colors. I don't care how warm the weather is, I'm celebrating SPRING!!

This was the project I submitted for the Hardware Store challenge for American Crafter. Instead of going to the wood or the nuts and bolts, I went to the garden section. I picked these terra cotta pots up for about $1.25 each, got some pretty flowers, and grabbed some fun spray paint and I was on my way!


I'm crazy and didn't pin the website where I got the stencil. But I DO remember she got it from Tatertots & Jello, so start there! It was the first time I've done a fun stencil like this and I'm excited to keep stencilin'! I used a Martha Stewart paint for the stencil and I was super happy with the result. I love me some Martha.


Aren't these pots so spring-y and fun?! They were an inexpensive yet festive way to add a little spring sweetness to my (ugly) porch.



Happy SPRING!!!
