Upcycle Plastic Flower Pots Into High-End Decor
There’s no better feeling of accomplishment when you can upcycle something that you might have thrown into the garbage.
That’s just what I was about to do with the plastic flower pots I found hiding in my garage. Then, a lightbulb moment hit! Why don’t I use my Modern Masters Metal Effects Patina Kit and transform it into high-end decor? Wow – am I glad I did.
It always amazes me how this kit transforms the blah and lifeless into truly stunning pieces. I can’t stop using it! Seriously, the possibilities are endless! The first time I used this kit I transformed a lamp base into a truly stunning decor piece. I was so impressed, I immediately fell in love.
Then, I turned my plain and boring candle decor and vase into a centerpiece everyone wow’s over when they see it. I love Modern Masters paint products so much, I even painted my Kitchen Bar Stools and now I don’t have to run out and buy new ones!
Back to my plastic flower pot insanely gorgeous upcycle!
This turned out better than I could have hoped for. Let me tell you a little bit about this kit first so you know where to get one yourself.
It’s called the Modern Masters Metal Effects Patina Kit – Amazon makes it easy to order and it comes in three different styles of textures and colors.
I used the Metal Effects Green Patina Kit color. It also comes in Metal Effects Blue Patina as well as the Metal Effects Rust Finish. Wow right?
Here’s what the kit looks like. And it is super easy to use – anyone can do it! It’s fun to get the kids involved too!
This is the inexpensive plastic flower pot I started with. Make sure to clean the areas you are painting so they are free of dirt and debris. Remove all labels, you know the drill. Excuse my messy fingers, I was a painting machine this weekend!
Now, you are ready for the magic to happen. Here’s what you get with the kit.
You will see for yourself just how easy this kit is to use! Any surface that can be painted, you can this kit on. It covers perfectly on all paintable surfaces.
Step 1 – Stir the primer with the stick that comes with the kit. Be sure to stir well. Paint surface with one coat. Wait 1/2 hour and apply another coat.
Step 2 – After you apply the two coats, wait at least 12 hours (that’s the hardest part!) then apply a coat of the copper. Wait 1/2 hour, apply another coat.
You can see how much mileage I got out of this kit. This is my third project using the same kit.
Step 3 – Then spray the surface while the paint is still wet with the Patina spray included in the kit. Let it completely dry a few hours and you have an amazing new home decor element for your home.
You can see it transforming right in front of your eyes.
And now for the reveal! I am so in love with this beautiful upcycled flower pot! If you have some plastic flower pots you will want to transform them too!
If I didn’t tell you, you would never know it was plastic! Now, to decide where to house this beauty. I tried a few different locations both inside and outside of my home.
I love how it looks paired with real plants as well as artificial ones.
Then, I tested the waters inside to see how it would look and of course, it’s divine!
I love how it looks inside my home too. There’s so much you can do with some old inexpensive plastic flower pots.
And the detail is like nothing you will get from hand painting.
I can place this flower pot anyplace, indoors or out, and I love how it looks.
If you love my Birds On a Wire be sure to check out how I created that beauty too!
I hope you were inspired to create your own beautiful patina finished plastic flower pots. There’s so much you can do with this kit. I can’t wait to use it again and see what unfolds!
