A Little Lacy Flower Pot

Orchids. They are my favorite flower. They are low maintenance and last forever, a lot longer than having fresh cuts in a vase. I love them so. I also love lace. I also love love love black and white color schemes. Hence came my idea for this "Little Lacy Flower Pot" It was so incredibly easy. My kind of DIY! Easy and inexpensive with an amazing end result. I am a little embarrassed to do a tutorial on this, it was that easy.

Here is what you do:
 Buy a Terracotta Pot. Paint it. Love it. I got one with a plate underneath. I painted that too. 


Place strip of lace around your painted pot, and attach with double sided tape. Trim off excess, and straighten the lace.

Plant your flower of choice in the pot. I cheated and just set the orchid in it's existing pot down in there. 

Here is the finished product. In front of my wallpaper that came today. That I literally taped to the wall I was so excited. I have been staring at it all day. My lovely mama and I are going to put up the wallpaper tomorrow.

Back to the pot. Do it!! Flowers make rooms happy. They make us happy. I am so grateful that God made them for us to enjoy. 

Thank you Lord for my pink orchids in my little lacy black and white flower pot.
