Bring on Spring! I am crazy about flowers and plants. I wanted to spruce up a few planters to use around the house and I like to keep it simple, but I also love geometric patterns. When the Jo-Ann team asked me to participate in their National Craft Month campaign, I said sign me up! Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website. I was given a gift card, a book full of inspiration and set loose. I have had my eyes on these simple square planters for a while now and it just clicked; add a few triangles and call it awesome.
You will need: a 5" square planter, a paint brush, craft paint, tape and this template I made for you. I snagged all of these goodies at Jo-Ann.
Step 1: Print out 4 copies of the template. Cut out the square, then cut out the triangles.
Step 2: Align and tape one template to the side of the planter. Tape the top to hold in place.
Step 3: Using the paint brush, gently paint downward strokes over the template to the bottom of the planter. Be careful on each outside edge, don't go past the template. (Note: if you accidentally get paint outside the template, just use a small piece of Magic Eraser to remove. Do this sooner rather than later.)
Step 4: Remove the template and let dry. Repeat on all 4 sides. Let cure for recommended drying time before planting just to make sure it is set.
There, the world's easiest geometric planter. What makes this DIY really simple is the square planter shape. The straight sides makes it really easy to do geometric shapes quickly and easily.
