I have a really easy how-to to share with you today. Sometimes that’s what we need though, amiright? Plants make wonderful decor but they need something to go in. And if you’re a plant junkie like I am, you know that planters can be an expensive item to add to your decor! Pick up one of those boring, basic, plastic planters though- because I’m going to show you have to dress it up and make it look fabulous!
- Plain plastic planter
- Electrical tape
How I Made It:
The most important part to this simple DIY is cleaning the planter. Make sure all debris and dust is off the planter because you’ll see it trapped beneath the tape.
Then cut lots of short pieces of electrical tape. Between 1.5 inches and 2 inches is a good length to eyeball. I just did this by cutting one and sticking it atop the tape and just kept cutting along the bottom of each piece,, repeating until I had a thick stack to start applying.
Then, just apply them to the planter in a staggered/staircase pattern. The tape peels off and reapplies easily so you can readjust as needed to fit around the planter.
As is the case with any DIY, this can be super customized. Don’t like the look of black on white? Grab a yellow planter and use white electrical tape on top! Don’t like the plain color on color? Try a printed washi tape! Don’t care for the staggered design? Make any shape your heart desires!
I hope this “how to” was helpful and that you found it interesting. If you did, please give it a share! I’d love for you to share this idea with your friends!
