You KNOW I love unique planters to rearrange my plants to my heart’s content. As evidenced by allllllll these DIY plant-related tutorials from our archives. And today I’m going to share yet another DIY planter idea that is SO EASY and turns out SO CUTE! No power tools necessary on this one!
I started out with a variety of sizes of terra cotta pots and some bowls/vessels from around the house (including a shot glass!). 😉

Using my favorite all-purpose glue (RapidFuse), I simply glued the top vessels to the similar-sized terra cotta pots, and they were dry in 30 minutes!
I know this looks a little janky, but stay with me! Let’s prime these babies to make them look like one piece! It’s important to prime, because otherwise paint won’t stick to the glossy surfaces of the glass OR the porous surface of the terra cotta pots.
I paint them upside down first, and then flip them and apply a second coat. That way the top surface is PERFECT!
It’s important to always follow instructions on labels regarding dry-times and recoating times, so be sure to read instructions! I usually use this spray primer.
I chose 3 different colors from my spray paint collection, you can choose any color combo you want to match your style!
Remember! Lots of light coats is better than putting on one thick coat, because you can’t undo drips!
I decided to add some detail with a white paint marker. I’ve never used one of these before, and it wasn’t my favorite. I think next time I’ll try a different brand. But it was fun to add some pattern and character to these!
You can add drainage holes easily if you want, using this technique!
Now it’s time to pop your plants in!
I love how fast this project was and HOW STINKIN CUTE THEY ARE!
