Flower pots are not only good for planting flowers, herbs, and small vegetables. They can also serve as a starter DIY project. Most flower pots come with a standard clay-brown colour, thus making it a great canvas for your DIY projects. DIY flower pot decoration is easy to do and doesn’t take too much time, so it’s perfect as your first DIY project.

This time, we have five flower pot decoration ideas to try, so get your paint, brushes, and crafting materials ready. 

Solid Colors

This flower pot decoration is a perfect start to get our hands dirty in DIY. We can cover the whole flower pot with color, or we can try to cover only the top or bottom half of the pot. We can also combine two or more different colors to make it more interesting.
