I don't get together with friends that often, so when I do I like to bring a little something. I think as makers, it's in our nature.
I had the opportunity to work with some goodies from Oriental Trading Company to make these little Herb Pots.
OTC Supplies used for these:
- Unfinished Square Flowerpots
- Patterned Texture Paper Pack
- Dictionary Tags
- Mona Lisa Brand Gold Foil Simple Leaf and Adhesive
- Misc Craft Paints
- Mod Podge
I painted the unfinished pots with cream acrylic craft paint. Once dry, I added strips from the patterned paper pack as shown.
Once the paper strips were dry, I applied the gold foil adhesive to the top and side edges. The adhesive takes about 20-30 minutes to dry to a tacky state. Once there, I applied the gold leafing randomly. I wanted to match the pattern in the paper so I didn't want complete coverage. I even roughed it up in places.
I wanted the Dictionary Tags to coordinate with the pots so I applied scraps of the paper I used on the pots along gold glitter paper and stickers from my stash.
Since I am not much of a gardener or green thumb ( unless it's green glitter!) I was thrilled to find these all in one herb kits at Target. I included two of these in the pots.
I wrapped the completed pots with strips of tulle, and finished off with the tags.
Those look so luxe, Carol! Gold and chic!
Great work! This is the type of info that should be shared around the internet. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and visit my site . Thanks
