DIY Chevron Pots
Day two of our Drab to Fab front door makeover continues today with DIY Chevron Pots!
Our small pots looked ridiculous and I was ready for a change up . . . something fun for the summer! Here’s the kicker, have you seen the prices of planters & pots? $$$. No thank you.
I spotted these contemporary pots in the
Wal Mart Garden section for $21.96 each. Sold to Moi!
To make the chevron pattern I downloaded this Printable Template from www.billiemonster.com. Next, I cut out the chevron designs and traced them onto a large piece of painters tape that I made by layering painters tape.
Next, I cut out the traced chevron pattern on the painters tape.
Next, I added the chevron painters tape template to the pink pots.
You can see the variety of Chevron sizes
(the printable template has 4 options and I used them all).
Once the pots were painted, I felt they looked a little bit too much like a
Mexican Restaurant . . . maybe I was craving chips & salsa . . . who knows . . . bottom line: the “fiesta” pots needed to be toned down.
I painted over most of the Chevron stripe and love how they turned out
- - just a splash of Chevron detailing!
