Gold Leaf Plant Pots

Are your kids complaining of boredom during their summer vacation yet? If you are looking for fun DIY crafts for a rainy afternoon or for any day really, these Gold Leaf Plant Pots are really easy and cheap to make and look simply adorable!

DIY Crafts: Gold Leaf Terracotta Plant Pots - a fun DIY craft for the whole family!

I used cheap terracotta pots and popped my DIY Moss Balls in them. Of course, you can add any sort of plant to them – a little cactus, some succulents or a small flowering plant from your local nursery would look adorable.

The kids will love making these DIY Gold Leaf Plant Pots!

DIY Crafts like these pots are fun because you really can’t mess them up. The less careful, the better they look! Case in point – I didn’t let the paint dry enough before adding the Gold Leaf and some of the navy blue paint pulled up revealing the terracotta underneath. And it looks amazing! I totally meant to do that if anyone asks! :-)

Navy blue and gray is one of my favorite color combinations so that’s what I picked for colors. Doesn’t the navy and gold just look so perfect together?

Apply liquid adhesive to the areas where you want the gold foil to adhere. I did little swirls, a stripe along the base and the top of another pot. 

Let the adhesive drive until it turns COMPLETELY transparent. This is important. It will not work unless you let it reach this stage. I’ve found this can take up to 30 minutes depending on how thick you’ve applied it. A thin layer should take about 10 minutes.

Rub the deco foil onto the adhesive, GOLD SIDE UP. You may want to burnish it with an object like a credit card or pen. Usually a good rub with your fingers will do the trick just fine.
