Time: 25 minutes
Materials: planter, Montana acrylic paint markers
This week is an exciting week friends! For the next three days, I’ll be partnering with Montana (you might remember their paint from this project), to bring you DIYS you can do with their spray paint and acrylic paint markers. Plus, they’ll be giving away 6 cans of paint AND 6 markers to not one, but three readers, so be sure to come back each day to see the projects and enter to win!
First up, how to makeover a basic planter in 25 minutes (with little cleanup):
If you’d like the planter to be anything but terra cotta, paint it! I chose white so the colors would really pop.
My favorite thing about these markers is that they cut my crafting and clean up time in half. I’m so use to pouring paint on a tray, cleaning my brush between each color, then washing up after (typically spilling it at some point in there). For the markers, all you do is shake and take the cap off. Seriously amazing.
There are several different tip sizes, but I used the 15mm so that when applied at an angle, it would produce an effect similar to a brushstroke. I recommend practicing on a sheet of paper first so you get used to the feel of the marker. Go around your pot, changing colors as you go, until you achieve the look you want.
And now the best part– you can win the supplies you need to create your own! Colors will vary from what’s listed below, but here’s everything (three of you) will win:
