DECOR | Make this DIY Plant Pot yourself in 3 easy steps with just paint and tape

Story by Temple & Webster Australia.

Sometimes you just don’t want to settle for the mass produced plant pots especially indoors. For all you home decor DIY enthusiasts, this one is for you. Australian home decor store Temple & Webster’s Stylist, Emmaly Stewart, made three chic DIY plant pots. Whether you love the soft hessian pot holder with a customised pattern, the rustic gold-leaf terracotta or the hard-edged masonry with copper feature, you can achieve it with less than $30 and a little elbow grease. But that in itself is the therapy. Right guys?


We love all three pots created by T&W stylist Emmaly Stewart but we’re going to try and make the Copper Block Pot (far right). Follow this simple how-to guide below to create the Copper Block Pot below. But if you want to try all three, please visit Temple & Webster


Copper Block Pot

You’ll need:

1 Besser Masonry block – ours was $2.05 from Bunnings
White paint
Masking tape
Paint brushes
Metallic paint – we used Matisse Structure in “metallic copper”


Step 1 – Preparing the block

Directly on to the block, mark out your desired shape with masking tape. Don’t forget the top of the pot, which we marked diagonally. Double-layer the masking tape just in case the paint seeps through later.



Step 2 – Paint the base layer

Fill in the area inside your masking tape stencil with white paint. You can use a paint brush to dab the paint on, helping it to cover the textured surface. Remove the tape and allow the paint to dry.


Step 3 – Add metallic

When it’s dry, re-tape with masking tape inside the white painted area. We used the width of the masking tape as a guide to keep things straight. The idea is to create a white frame. Paint over the rest of the white shape with your metallic paint. For great coverage paint two layers, and then remove the masking tape. Voila!
