Chalkboard Flower Pot

Remember WAY back in like January-ish when I re-organized my office space?
The after looked like this:


Much better… but still nothing exciting. 
I’ve worked in that space for a few months now and I finally decided it was in need of some fancying up!
First things first, my mom gave me a small potted plant that she’d had in her office. 
Cute little thing that it was, it too needed a little fancy before moving to it’s new home in MY office! 😉

Enter chalkboard paint and a Silhouette cut vinyl stencil. 


I used a shape that had come in a four pack I purchased from the Silhouette store back when I made my Save the Date cutouts. It was a little troublesome to get the vinyl on the pot because it has a curve to it… but I finally got it on there… mostly straight. 😉

I used a foam brush to fill in the stencil with chalkboard paint. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but be careful to buy chalkboard paint FOR GLASS if you’re doing a project like this. The kind I have is meant for porous surfaces, so you really have to glob it on there and let it dry overnight for it to work. 

 I hot glued a small strip of  fabric on the back to hold a piece of chalk! 
I was quite proud of myself for thinking of that one… haha. Now there’s chalk handy when I want to change the message on the chalkboard. 🙂



I rolled a small rosette using this method and hot glued it on the front for a little pretty embellishment
and it was done! 🙂 
A cute little planted pot for my office!   



Stay tuned for some other little pretties I made to Fancy Up my office space!
