You will need:
- A plastic bottle (soda bottles work best because they have those little legs)
- Spray paint
- Acrylic paint (any water resistant paint really, I used nail polish)
- A permanent marker (like a sharpie)
-Of course a plant to put inside :)
First, I took a plastic bottle and remove the label. Then I cover the bottom half with some cream color spray paint. You can fill the bottle halfway with some water so it stays up, it makes this step easier.
Then I cut the upper part. I measure how tall I wanted the planter to be and cut only part of the bottle as you can see in the video. I marked more or less where I wanted the cat ears to be, just above the two little legs and cut following that line.
I decided to use some pink nail polish to paint the ears and nose. I didn't have a small brush so I used a toothpick. I drew two triangles for the ears and a heart for the nose. As you see the paint cracks when it dries so I recommend using acrylic paint if you can. I also use a permanent marker to make the rest of the face.
I finally pour some water and place the plant.
I had a lot of fun recreating this pin, I hope you found it useful and let me know if you want me to try any other pin. Also, don't forget to tweet me a picture if you try this DIY and I talk to you in my next video.
Thanks for watching!!
