A couple of weeks ago, my friend Charlotte asked me to join her and a bunch of other amazing creators to create something rainbow themed for her fundraiser in support of the LGBTQ+ community.  #CreatorsSayGay is meant to raise awareness of the anti-gay legislation happening across the country, and to raise funds for The Trevor Project and for the ACLU. If you’d like to donate you can Venmo: @AtCharlotteshouse.

Yesterday, over 50 creators shared projects on Instagram in support of this cause! There were so many beautiful, colorful projects, it just made my heart smile searching the hashtag.

For my project, I decided to jazz up some basic wood planters that I picked up from Michael’s, and I just love how they turned out. See below to learn more about how to make your own!

What you need

What to do:

1.) Place your foam ball on a steady surface. I like to save glass jars and bottles to upcycle or to propagate plants in and happened to find that the mouth of an empty Patron bottle work out perfectly for this.  Turn your hot knife to high and begin slicing, slowly spinning the ball as you go.  Do not squeeze it together as you cut, as it will melt back together.

*If you are using a serrated knife just cut it down the middle in a sawing motion.

2.) Paint your half circles in your favorite colors. I stuck a toothpick into the flat side to paint and then rested them between two piece of 2×4 to dry.

3) Next, grab your hot glue gun, and squeeze a generous amount onto the flat side of the half circle. Attach in your desired pattern.

And Voila!  That’s it!  Such a fun and easy way to jazz up a planter (or anything really!)

 

Thank you Charlotte for coordinating this important effort and for inviting me to participate🌈
