Farewell winter blues: we’re moving on to luscious green! Now in the winter, we all love to see fresh, vibrant shades of green in the comfort of our homes. And since Easter is still a while away, now is the perfect time to create a fancy little home for your houseplants: using chic DIY flowerpots and cool geometric patterns.
And if you still have scraps of d-c-fix® adhesive foils from previous DIY projects – then all the better! Now you can make good use of them!
You will need…
First you need to glue the 4 square side plates (12 x 12 cm) together at the corners with wood glue and then allow the resulting housing to dry thoroughly. Next, glue the base plate to the wooden housing.
Now, transfer the dimensions of your plant pot to the backing paper of the white adhesive foil and cut the piece of foil to size.
For the “facade work” you just peel off the backing paper and apply the adhesive foil with the doctor blade around the plant pot. The best way to do this is to exert a little bit more pressure on each edge to ensure that the edges are taped over cleanly and firmly.
Now for your personal design fine-tuning: Cut out stripes, geometric shapes and patterns from your colorful adhesive foils and stick them onto your planter. Now you have a stylish home for your plant!
Just fill your new DIY flower pot with potting soil and put your little plant in it – water it, put it in a nice spot – and enjoy your work of art!
Lend a unique creative look to your plant pot by combining several colorful adhesive foils, patterned foils or foils with glitter and gloss effects. Scraps of adhesive foils from previous DIYs are most welcome!
