Marbled Plant Pot…

Standard

I have been seeing the nail polish marbling trend all over Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try my hands 🙂 This technique is just not for nails and was so inspired by this gorgeous post.

I absolutely love the patterns and the blue nail polish looks like a bird. I couldn’t resist to highlight with a metallic sharpie marker.. 😉

Well, this project might sound easy, hmm… yes, to some extent because it can be done with few materials (already on hand) and super inexpensive. However, the trick is the temp of water!

You’ll need:

Plant pot from IKEA – 49 cents

Nail polish

Toothpick/Needle

Disposable container

Water – warm or room temperature ( cold doesn’t work)

Step 1: Fill the container with water half way

Step 2: Pour in the nail polish, let it spread on top of water and use a toothpick to blend the colors or give a nice texture.

Step 3: Dip the plant pot and hold it for couple of seconds, take it out and  leave it to dry.

Isn’t that easy and quick?

It gives a fresh look to my kitchen sink window bay and I could wash dishes all day long 😉 hehe..you know what I mean😛

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
