DIY: Jeweled Planters

Centsational Girl has been one of our favorite blogs for a long time now.  We love her sense of home design and fashion on a budget!  Check her out!  Today we are featuring her blog on how to fancy up your planter.  These would be fantastic for a garden party or an outdoor wedding perhaps?  What do you think?
This planter makes a gorgeous statement, on a wedding table, surrounding your orchids, or adding glamour to your outdoor table.
How to Make a Jeweled Planter:
  1. Inexpensive terra cotta planter(s)
  2. Outdoor spray paint
  3. Glass marbles (with flat side) from craft store
  4. Silicone rubber sealant or epoxy glue from hardware store
Step One:  Spray paint your terra cotta planters with some outdoor spray paint and allow to dry.  I use a beautiful shade of cream by Rustoleum called ‘Heirloom White’.
Step Two: Attach your glass marbles with silicone rubber sealant.  This product is waterproof and will withstand outdoor abuse.
Silicone sealant takes about 24 hours to cure, but after that, your ‘jewels’ will stay on regardless of moisture.
This DIY project makes your planters look like they’re wearing jewelry!
