Copper-Dipped Planter DIY

Spring is such a beautiful time of year. Everything comes to life in the most colorful ways! Flowers and plants are one of the most loved signs of spring, and I felt it would be wrong not to add a little greenery to my desk at work. After making a trip to my local nursery, I found the perfect plants for the job. The only thing missing was a beautiful home for them to thrive. These copper-dipped planters were super simple to make, and they really add the bold punch of color I was looking for!.

Planter DIY


1. First, tape off the rim around your pot with painter’s tape. The tape that I used measured 1.5  inches, and worked well with 3 inch pots.

2. Next, paint the base of your pot with acrylic paint. Let it dry for a few minutes.

3. Finally, peel off the painter’s tape. Use metallic paint to cover the rim for the copper effect. I did this by hand, and I found these brushes were perfect for achieving a smooth edge.
