DIY Modern Outdoor Planter

Updated: Oct 28, 2022

I’m starting to be fixated on finding different things in my house to upgrade and beautify :) One of my latest undertakings involve an old flower/planter pot that I have been storing in the garage for what seems forever lol! I’m really feeling the physical changes of the facelift from the previous plain plastic terracotta planter to a more modern design. My new favorite stone texture spray paint has made another cameo appearance; in addition to some rope to add some dimension.

  • White Primer Spray Paint

  • Rope

  • Texture Spray Paint

  • Yarn

  • Planting Pot

  • Glue Gun/ Glue Sticks

  • E6000 Glue

Step 1

Use white primer to spray paint the exterior of the pot.

Step 3

Start spray painting the texture spray paint after the white spray paint primer dries.

Step 4

I cut and burnt the ends of some thick black rope that I purchased from a Home Improvement store. (Burning the ends of the rope helped with stopping the ends of the rope from unraveling) I used a combination of E600 glue and a glue gun to adhere the rope to the top of the planter.

Step 5

I usually always feel the need to add a pop of color to something "hahaha"

I used a glue gun and spiral wrapped pink yarn around the black rope. I hot-glued the yarn to the rope approximately every five inches to make sure the yarn was secure.

Step 6

Wrap the pink coiled rope around the top of the planter and secure with hot glue.

There you have it An outdoor planter with a modern flare! This is a great example of a way to refresh an old planting pot or jazz up a new plain planter.
