Don't you love when you grab your favorite magazine and immediately get inspired to go and create something similar? That's what happened to me with this issue of All You magazine! I saw these beautiful eggs decorated for Easter with a color block painted technique...
I immediately got inspired to re-create the same technique but on some planters. So, a trip to the Dollar General was the next step. I only went there looking for planters, but then it happened that I saw this really nice shelf liner and the "painted color block" began drifting out of my mind. :)
Why bother with paint, tape and brushes when this shelf liner already has the color block! I love its chevron, herringbone design.
All you'll need is:
- Self adhesive shelf liner
- X-Acto knife
Following the design, cut shelf liner strips and attach them to the planter from below the rim all the way to the bottom.
Overlapped the strips of shelf liner on the lower part, in order to accommodate the tapered design on the planter.
Once the planter is covered all around, use the X-Acto knife to cut ½" off the bottom of the liner, and any extra pieces you may have at the top.
I had some left over pieces from a project shared HERE. The quatrefoil design was cut and adhered to the planter.
The only thing left was to fill the planters with soil and beautiful plants!
