DIY Face Planters

I’m obsessed with this little face planter DIY. They are seriously so easy to make and are SO CUTE! I have a bunch of little planters I’ve collected with funny faces on them and I thought it would be cool to make my own to add to my collection. For these planters we just picked up some pots at a nursery and then made the faces out of paint and sculpey. So easy! We partnered with Google Home for this DIY. Do you know about Google Home? It’s a voice-activated device that does everything from: setting timers, answering quick questions, playing music, and even turning on the heat or a kettle! It’s a great tool for busy parents – because it’s totally hands free. So, if you’re in the middle of a project with your kids, or need some inspiration while you’re working, or if you’re in the middle of crafting these planters and just want to listen to some music – you just have to tell it and voila! Music! It’s like having an assistant to make life easier so you can focus on important things, like crafting (and family).

I love how each little pot has a personality. They would make such a great homemade gift for the holidays because they are affordable and right on trend. You could make a batch add a little plant and give them to your friends or coworkers.

Materials needed: Sculpey III, wax paper, x-acto knife, oven, ceramic plant pots, artists tape, acrylic paint, paint brush, hot glue gun

Step 1: Roll sculpey onto a piece of wax paper until you have an evenly flattened piece. Using an x-acto knife, cut out your three dimensional design from the flattened sculpey. Smooth the edges with your fingers.
Step 2: Bake your design for the amount of time specified on your package. This can vary from brand to brand. Because of the small size of our designs, we only needed to bake ours for about 1-2 minutes each.
Step 3: While the sculpey is still warm, lay the design over the curve of the ceramic pot. Tape the design onto the curved form and let cool completely. Remove the design and tape from the pot.
Step 4: Paint the pot and the hardened sculpey design with acrylic paint as you wish and let dry.
Step 5: Adhere the design to the ceramic pot with hot glue.
Step 6: Put your plant in its new home, and you’re all set!
