This is an really easy little DIY project to do in an afternoon. I love that it uses up some plastic pots as well – feel I am always popping things like this in the recycling so makes me happy that I am getting more use out of them! I keep mine at work on my desk but they would be great for hair bands, clips or cotton wool! Happy making x
You Will Need:
Small tubs/containers depending on the size of pot you want to make
Rust-Oleum surface primer in matt white
Paint tester pots in colours of your choice
Gorilla Glue super glue (or similar)
Remove the label from your existing container. If any residue is left on the surface, soak in warm soapy water and use a scourer to wash it away. Dry thoroughly.
Spray the surface (and inside if you wish) of the pot using a good-quality primer. You may need several coats depending on the surface you’re working with. Leave to dry between coats and always work in a well-ventilated area.
Once the primer is dry, use a paintbrush to cover the surface in the colour of your choice. Repeat as necessary to get good coverage and make sure the container has a smooth, even finish.
Using a strong super glue, apply a small dab to the centre of the lid and stick a single wooden bead into place. Hold for a few seconds and leave to dry before using.
If you’d like to add words (or numbers) to your pot, apply a small dab of super glue to each letter and stick in place around the front. Hold each one to dry before moving onto the next.
Thank you to Cassie Pryce for working with me on this project.
