Hello, hello! It’s time for one of my favorite challenges, Inspired by DIY! This month we are sharing DIYs inspired by Pottery Barn. A huge thanks to our hostess Domicile 37 for organizing and creating our beautiful graphics for this challenge.
My inspiration piece was a blue lotus cachepot that cost a pretty penny. What I absolutely love about the pot is that it is hand-painted. I knew I could create something similar. Especially when it’s okay to have imperfections in a design! The project costs me under $2.
What you need for this cute and quick DIY:
A white and plain pot
Blue enamel paint marker
Tape (painter’s tape or washi tape)
To “hand draw” stripes that are straight, use tape and trace around it. Two lines at the top of your pot will do the trick.
Create a scallop pattern using the top line for a guide. Draw lotus flowers on top of the scallops (and little stems and leaves) after the ink dries. Since this is hand-painted, they don’t need to look perfect. 😉
Use another piece of tape at the bottom to create one more straight line. A fun-“bumpy” detail mirrors the inspiration piece.
The top band of the cachepot has the only perfect pattern. You could try a stencil or to keep this project around 5 minutes, use a piece of decorative tape to create the symmetry.
I love the contrast between the black-evenly-spaced polkadots and the hand-painted blue pattern.
Pot a cute-little plant and there you have it, an easy-5 minute Pottery Barn inspired cachepot.
You are going to be blown away by the rest of these projects. Make sure to check out all of them!
There’s also another fun blog hop going on this week! Join our garden party as a few bloggers each day show you their beautiful outdoor spaces. Come back Friday to see our little Okinawa garden!
