5 simple ideas on flower pot embellishment

Sometimes you are just not happy with how your flower pots look. Maybe, they are not matching your house decor, your colors or maybe, you are just tired of looking at the same things.

You can buy new pots or you can try to improve the ones you already have (this way you will get a new look for less).

Here is 5 simple ideas to embellish outdated flower pots:
1. Glue an ornament, a button or other decor items
2. Tie and glue a decorative rope around the pot's neck
3. Make a pot necklace
4. Cover it with mosaic or tile
5. Simply repaint the pot in your favorite color.

I was replanting my plants yesterday so here is more on idea 1, a flower pot ornament.
I choose a gold colored button for my black pot. I like the minimalist look of these 2 together.
When I get tired of this look I will add a piece of bright crystal on top of button but right now I am happy with the way it is.
You will need:
deco cement glue
a flat button, about 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" in diameter
rubbing alcohol
a cotton ball
ceramic pot
Wash the pot with clean warm water, let it dry. Choose the place where you want to glue your button. Clean it with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball, let it dry. Clean the button surface with the same cotton ball and rubbing alcohol (the side which will be glued to the pot). Carefully spread the thin layer of glue on top of both surfaces. Wait a little bit and add a little bit more of glue. Now, gently press the button to the pot surface. The glue should stay under the button so you should not have to clean around it. Lay your pot horizontally and let it dry for 24 hours.
