Starry Night Festive Plant Pot - Articles Surfing
Home-made Christmas presents make lovely gifts. They are special because the person who makes the gift puts a lot of time and thought into the present. This Christmas plant pot present is stylish, funky, and easy to make and celebrates the religious element of Christmas time, the birth of Jesus Christ.
All you need is...
A terracotta plant pot, of any size you choose. Some black gloss paint or another night sky colour. Gloss or silk emulsion paint is great. A mini tester pot would be ideal or leftovers from the shed.
A small amount of metallic or white paint.
No Nails glue.
A selection of coloured glass stones.
Firstly, paint your plant pot in the night sky coloured paint. You may wish to apply two coats to get a nice finish. Use the paint in accordance with the directions on the paint tin. Only continue once the paint is completely dry.
Using metallic or white gloss paint, paint a star onto the plant pot. The star should have four points or arms, and it should look a bit like a crucifix. This is the basis of the focal point of the plant pot. This is the star that shone down upon the stable at the nativity, and which led the three wise men and the shepherds to the place where Jesus was born.
Allow the star to dry.
Using no nails glue, stick on a glass stone at the centre of the painted star. Now stick other glass stones on the pot to give the appearance of a starry sky. You can sick on actual star formations, the plough or the great bear or any others that you know. Don't forget to decorate the back of your plant pot too.
This festive plant pot would make a super Christmas present just as it is, or you could plant it up with some springtime bulbs.
