herb planter upcycle {diy}

Metallic is cool.  Geometric shapes are cooler.  And in my World, DIY is the coolest.  Let’s put all three together and get creative…

I was strolling through Target one day and saw that this herb planter was $1.50.  I immediately thought that it would make a fun addition to a dinner party or buffet…or a pretty succulent planter…or a desk-top accessory…once it was dressed up a little bit.  No need to break out your arsenal of stencils and paint here (although you can).  I just used some metallic markers and hand painted on these designs.

I did some triangles, dots, and bricks:

Fun, right!?!?!  I think the unlimited possibilities are what make this DIY great.  The plastic has a nice texture so drawing, painting, or decoupage would all work fabulously.  Make it your own to match your theme or decor!
