Flower pots are not only good for planting flowers, herbs, and small vegetables. They can also serve as a starter DIY project.

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.
