CIY Staff Tips:



Pour a single colour of paint into a smaller plastic cup. Add white, black or another, complementary colour to create new shades. If your paint is too thick, add 1 tsp of water to thin it out.


Protect your work surface with recycled newspaper before placing a small plastic cup in the center. Maker sure your cup fits inside the opening of your flower pot. Place your flower pot on top of your cup, upside down.


Pour paint around the edges of your flower pot to create a drip dye effect. Tip: Vary the colours to create a marbled effect.


Let dry completely before picking up and removing the cup. Add flowers, stationery or other items for a colourful piece of decor.
