With less than 1 week till Mother’s Day, it’s crunch time for figuring out those Mother’s Day gifts. Both my mom and my mother-in-law love flowers so that is what we usually get them for Mother’s Day. Some years we pick out the flowers and other years we give them gift cards so they can pick out their own. This year I decided to decorate pots with Painters Paint Markers and then plant some flowers in the pots as part of their gifts.
Then, I started painting on the diagonal lines. Again, I did them so that the spaces between varied as well as the diagonal slant. I changed the paint marker color every 2 spaces, switching between 2 colors. I love using Painters Paint Markers, as I am sure you can tell from other posts I’ve done, because they are so convenient to use for drawing lines or details. The paint does dry fairly quickly but it is still paint so if you aren’t careful, you might end up with some paint on your hands and fingers like I did. If I am painting a larger surface I will use a paint brush but for project like this Painters Paint Markers are my favorite!
I love how they turned out and now we just need to get some flowers in them!
Vanessa helped me pick out the flowers. We choose blue and white flowers for one pot and yellow and white for the other pot. I do not have a green thumb by any stretch of the imagination so picking the flowers took us quite while because we had to make sure they were a good fit height wise and that they could both tolerate the sun!
Vanessa loves this kind of thing so she was really happy that I waited for her to be able to help me! We put some rocks in the bottom of the pots for drainage and then added the dirt and flowers.
They look a tad bit dismal right now because we just planted them but they will perk up in time for Mother’s Day!
Are you making any Mother’s Day gifts this year?
