Amalia, I'm sure your nephew will have a lot of fun:D

It looks quite pretty, doesn't it?:)

It really does! I think that you could use almost anything to decorate them, you just need some time. It could also be very therapeutic as it disconnects us from the daily routine. And we can admire the result every day we walk past it :)

Here is something nice and extremely simple:



Instead of this weird shade of blue (turquoise?), I'd use pale pink paint or maybe a green one. I like the idea though. It looks very tidy and cute:) How do you feel abut it? Do you like it too?

Claudine - am not sure that I'm that keen on it its looks, and especially don't like the half mast effect as those two colors are really not complimentary to each other, and would prefer either one or the other.

As I think that turquoise
can look quite stark on its own - think it looks better when matched with other bright colors,
so how about these

Gata Montes, these flower pots are quite colorful, they look very cheerful:) But still, turquoise is definitely not my favorite color.
This pot is more my style, but I think I'd replace the pink dots with white ones:

I see some really beautiful and unique ideas. I love this thread. I don't currently decorate my flower pots, but after seeing the lovely pictures in this thread, I would very much like to start. I think I will!

In my opinion this is the perfect flower pot:


I love it! I'm addicted to polka dots. It's the cutest pattern ever.
Looking at this picture makes me want to repaint my old flower pots:)

Would agree with you even though I quite like turquoise as a color - its a little too much on a pot, but if I had to have one would choose the last one which I actually find quite attractive, especially as its subtle enough so as not to detract from the plant that would be living in it :D
Looking at the pot of your choice - think it would be the perfect choice for a black rose or hyacinth :D and as I know you like both pink and black - how about these

The picture in your last post is not showing up - so am not sure if I am duplicating what you have already posted - and my apologies if that is the case - but hope you like them anyway :)

Is it still not showing up? I can see it and I'd like you to be able to see it too, because it looks very pretty:)

I like these pots in the second picture that you posted! I'd use a pale pink paint though, because I've never liked too bright colors. But the idea itself is more than lovely!:) Big polka dots always look so cheerful!

Love this thread! I am going to keep an eye on it, for future use. My pots are plain right now, just store bought ones. I do have one flower pot that I painted Totoro on. He is a cute Japanese character from a Ghibli Studios movie. Totoro is suppose to be the keeper of the forest. At one point in the movie, he makes this huge tree grow, so I thought it was fitting for my flower pot.

Mariam, I'm sure your flower pot looks really cute, it's such a nice idea!:D o be honest, I haven't heard of Totoro before. But I've just gooogled him and I found a few inspirational pictures:)
The last one is my favorite!

Its a shame cos its still not showing up - and now you've got me really looking forward to seeing it, especially as your description has made it sound so very pretty - hope that you can find it again :)

Somehow thought the pots in the last picture - would be the ones with the greatest appeal, but did wonder if you might find the strength of the color a bit too much - but glad I was on the right track and that I didn't duplicate your pretty one, shall look forward to seeing it though :)

Now, I am going to have to do some more Totoro pots! Those are so awesome. The last one is my fave, too. I will try to get some of my pot pictures up here. I think I might have a few more painted ones outside.

I honestly don't know what is wrong with that picture. I would fix it if I knew how:( Oh well, I hope it'll start showing by itself;)
I found other pictures of lovely, dotted flower pots though:

Claudine - yes its a real shame about your picture not showing up - especially as my curiosity as to what it looks like is nearly killing me :D but I do like that last picture of the green pot and very recently saw one very similar that - but in a much nicer shade - than sage green and it looked really striking - because the dots were done with gold paint so it looked like it was encrusted with little flakes of gold :love: have been trying to locate it again but haven't as yet managed to :(
Will keep trying though, especially as I think you too, might really like it :)

Claudine - that is so very cute - sweaters for plant pots - its not something that I would normally like to dress my plant pots in, but have to admit I really can't help but like them - cute :)

That's a really interesting idea, Claudine :)!!! The fourth is also my favorite one. I think there are many way you can decorate a flower pot at home :) Here is one of my fav ones:









I love colours, what can I say? ;)

I like the mosaic flower pot in the second picture! Are these pieces from a broken CD?
The first pot also looks very interesting and so detailed!

These are simple and nice:
