Restyled Flower Pot using Gelatos

Hello, Katie here! You may have noticed that the majority of my guest posts for Design Memory Craft have been Spring inspired. I just love this time of the year! I have a garden in my backyard with pots filled with vegetables and I wanted to try decorating a flower pot.

Start off by coating your flower pot in Gesso. This will give it a bit more texture and you can change the color of it. I chose to just stick with the white color of the gesso.

Following this tutorial I created a gelato gel paint using gel medium and gelatos. With my gel, I painted vines onto my pot. I like that the gel paint has more texture than if I had just drawn the vines with gelatos.

After the paint was dry I doodled around my vines using my medium black PITT pen.

To finish embellishing my pot, I created a fabric tag (I used vintage strawberry fabric.) which I wrote my plant name on and then tied it to my flower pot using a bright and fun ribbon by Amy Tangerine.

After it was all finished I added a little bit of dirt and a radish seed. I love watching radishes grow because they grow so quickly! I think this pot turned out so adorable and looks great with a little seedling in it.
