Step 1: Gather the Materials
- Glue for tiles
- Ceramic Pot
- Plastic cup
- Wooden spoon to mix grout
Step 2: Stick the Tiles to the Pot
Apply glue on the tile or on the pot and stick in the desired area. I would recommend a 1/8-1/4 inch distance just because it allows the grout to more easily. Don't worry about the glue showing.
Step 3: Switch It Up!
Then, switch your pot! (I forgot to take pictures of the process with the yellow-and-blue pot so this will be shown. This is a joke.)
Step 4: Make Your Grout!
Now, pour in about 1/4 cup of grout into a plastic cup, or a bigger container and add some water. The consistency in the first picture was too dry, so I added some more water to get a more watery mixture.You want it to be goopy, not watery and not clumpy, like peanut butter but thinner so more like almond butter) You're ready!
Step 5: Apply the Grout
Get a good glob of grout on your hand (this dries your hands out so I went with gloves) and rub it into the clay pot. The third picture shows the end result; leave it to dry for around 3-5 minutes
Step 6: Rub Off the Grout
When it is dry enough, you can rub off the grout with your fingers and then with a paper towel. Please do this near a trash can!
Step 7: Voila!
Here are the finished products! Now all you have left to do is adding a plant and this makes for an excellent birthday gift. Good luck!
