Today I am sharing with you a super easy tutorial on how to make your own Rosy Red Stenciled Flower pots.
I am working with a great group of DIY experts who help me from becoming stagnate.
They merrily encourage, while sharing so much enthusiasm and quite frankly there is no telling what idea they might present to us.
Then to top it off they tell us “go have fun with the project!”
Fun is good, so are challenges and so is being able to share with you this DIY recycle and stencil project as well as links to these talented bloggers.

This month our challenge was to recycle and stencil.
I found a darling little package of stencils and went to work jazzing up these mini rosy red flower pots that I had tucked away in one of my craft boxes.
Total cost of this project was around $18.00 if you were purchasing everything.
However I already had most of my supplies.
I began this project by taking these three rather plain-jane flower pots who seemed to have no purpose and not much personality and transformed them into some real cuties that are dressing up some various spots of our home.
With it being Winter and all, I have been having a real hankering for adding just a touch of color to our home.
Supplies For This Project~
- 3 Ceramic pots (2.8 inches) ~ approximate cost $1.00 each
- Momenta stencil ~ Cost $2.99
- Adhesive pearl sticker ~ Cost $1.50
- Gold Trim Adhesive border ~ Cost $1.50
- Foam Stencil Dabber Set ~ Cost $3.99
- Folk Art Sky Blue (465) Acrylic Paint ~ Cost $1.49
- Styrofoam Floral block (1.8 x 7.8) ~ Cost $1.99
- Floral Stems (2 bunches)~ Cost $4.99
How To Make Rosy Red Stenciled Flower Pots~
Use twin stick tape to secure florist foam.
Step 2. Put acrylic paint on paper plate, then place stencil on flower pots, you can tape the stencil in place.
Stenciling is truly a “dry,” brush technique.
Step 4. For this project I used a technique called stippling, which is simply tapping or dabbing against the stencil opening. Repeat this process on each side of the flower pot.
Step 5. Once paint is dry add self stick trim around the top edge of the flower pot. If needed cut to fit.
Step 6. Add Pearl stickers.
Step 7. Cut flowers and stem to desired height and and stick into florist foam that is inside of the flower pot.
I am really enjoying these little rosy red flower pots and they are a perfect size for so many spots in our home.
