Decoupage Collage

Last summer I bought several plastic pots from Target's clearance section. You can't beat $.60 for a pot, right? Fast forward a year and after the harps stopped playing as my irrational head-over-heels love for the cheap pots faded, I realized how ugly they are.  I haven't filled them with anything because I didn't want them in my house.  So, what began as a bargain 60 cents (times four pots) ended up being a waste of 60 cents (times four pots).

Well, I in the midst of a horrible case of DIY ADD (you should read all about the symptoms of this crafty virus to ensure you haven't caught the germ), I decided to do a little makeover.  Mod podge plus pretty paper plus paint equals awesome pot makeover. Really!

Thanks to my insane inability to throw away scraps of beautiful paper, I was able to make a collage of sorts on the pot.

With all the random blank spots, I simply painted on my new favorite color of craft paint (Bird Egg) and voila!

I started these flowers from seeds and now I can't remember what type of flowers they are. Guess we'll be surprised when they bloom!!

What a great way to cover up the not so cute pot! I love it!

Great solution! You are so clever and brave. I'm always afraid I'm going to ruin things. I guess it's hard to ruin a 60 cent pot.
