I wrote a little while ago about wanting to bring in more houseplants into my home and with spring on the way I have started to add some. Although I am only starting tiny so I don’t kill them all off!
Wayfair challenged me to create something new from their plant pots and planter category. I needed to come up with something new using their plant pots. Making it unique to me.
So I decided my office noticeboard needed some new plants added to it! I spotted these very cute little pots. They maybe small but they come in a large range of colours to pick from so you can tie this in with your colour scheme easily. My office noticeboard is white and gold, so yes these would have worked just staying white…..but to be honest every opportunity to add a bit of gold to my office and I jump at it!
If you have noticed they have a small magnetic square on them. This is perfect for attaching to anything metal. Easy if you have a metal noticeboard, fridge or shelving. However my noticeboard is made from wood. So I purchased a small metal disc for each plant pot, it’s about a size of a 5p size.
This PlastiKote gold leaf spray paint is perfect for little jobs like this. I sprayed my black mirror with this gold spray paint and it is still looking fab. So I knew it would work well for these little plant pots too.
I wanted to create a gold bottom and slightly gold around the bottom edges. This meant that when they’re on my noticeboard I can see the gold bottoms!
Wrap around a piece of tape around the top, covering over the top section of the pots and the insides. This leaves the bottom and a small section around each side exposed. Turn them upside down and spay all around.
Once dried, carefully remove the tape and you will be left with your gold section and ready to fill with your chosen plant!
I picked little cacti that I found in a pack of 3 from my local garden centre. They were just the right size. I would recommend taking your little pots to the garden centre with you to make sure you don’t get a plant too big.
Cacti don’t need too much attention or water, so will fit perfectly in my house! Also as there isn’t any drainage holes in these plant pots you don’t want a plant that needs a lot of water. You only need to add a small amount when needed and not soaking the roots.
They fit perfectly on my noticeboard and I am really pleased I added the little section of gold. I think it brings them to life.
The magnet is really strong so I’m not worried they are going to fall off either!
You don’t have to just stick with a plant pot staying the same as you purchased it! I hope you like my DIY gold and white plant pot, I would love to hear about what is your favourite plant in your home?
