DIY quirky sitting flower pot

I brought home this leafy Golden pothos plant on a whim around Thanksgiving last year, never fully expecting that it would live to see Christmas under my black thumb. And yet, here it is almost 5 months later!! What a resilient little sucker. One of my bucket list items is to “Keep a plant alive for at least a year” (seriously), so I’m hoping I’ll get to cross that one off the list in a few months :-) To reward my new friend for its impressive survival skills, I decided to upgrade it to a happy new home for spring!

DIY quirky sitting flower pot steps

What you’ll need:

  • a terra cotta planter
  • white oven bake clay
  • hot glue/super glue
  • white gloss spray paint
  1. Take a look at your planter and decide out how large you would like the legs to be
  2. Start sculpting! I found it easier to make things even by rolling out a “snake” for the legs, along with two balls for the feet
  3. Cut the “snake” in half to get two equally sized legs. Flatten the balls with your thumb and shape them into little rounded out rectangles
  4. Make sure your planter is sitting on a flat surface, and gently squish the legs into position. When you’re happy with the length and thickness of the legs, go ahead and attach the feet!
  5. Then create some pieces for the face – I went with two simple dots for the eyes and a teeny cone for the nose
  6. Bake your clay pieces according to the directions on the package (I removed the eyes and nose early since they’re so much smaller in size)
  7. Once they’re done, let them cool and glue them into place
  8. Spray the entire planter with two coats of spray paint
  9. When the paint has fully dried, transfer your green friend to his new whimsical home!
