Remove your tape then seal by covering glitter with a thin layer of mod podge. It will dry clear, but if you get any on the glass, you can clean it off with rubbing alcohol.

1. Start by painting the inside of your planter. You don’t need to paint the entire inside, just the top half and a bit of the lip since the plant will take up most of the space.

2. Once dry, move to the outside.

3. If you want to add glitter (it’s not as tacky as you would think!), make sure the outside paint is dry, otherwise it will stick where you don’t want it. Since PVA dries quickly, divide the rim in segments, brushing on the glue/glitter as you go.

4. Wipe of any extra glitter, pot your plant, and you’re done!
