It’s been a long time since I did my wedding planning, but I occasionally daydream about what I’d make if I was getting married soon (and for the record, it’s always to the same guy!). The theme for June’s Craft Lightning is weddings and I had a lot of fun being able to make something for my daydream wedding. If this is your first time stopping by during Craft Lightning, the challenge is to make a themed craft in 15 minutes or less, excluding drying time. My Bride and Groom Flowerpots fit the bill!
To make these flowerpots, I used two dollar bin pots, some white tulle, white and black paint, a glue gun, scissors, and a paint brush.
I cut two pieces of tulle. I eyeballed both. One needed to be long enough to wrap around the pot and tie off, and the other was the “train.”
I wrapped the longer piece of tulle around the pot and tied it.
I scrunched the end of the smaller piece together and tucked it under the knot of the first piece.
To secure the tulle, I put a bit of glue on the pot where knot from the first piece met the second piece of tulle.
I then took pieces of tulle that stuck out from the knot, fanned them up, and glued them.
The bride flowerpot was ready!
For the groom’s pot, I painted a tuxedo on the front. I know I do this to you all the time, but I freehanded the painting. It’s an easy paint job, though, and you can easily see how I did it.
Minus drying time, these Bride and Groom Flowerpots took under fifteen minutes to make. I can imagine them as decor for a bridal shower or rustic wedding. At any rate, they were fun to make and helped me scratch my wedding planning itch!
