Step 3.

 

While your flower pot is drying, draw and cut several flower and grass shapes from construction paper. If desired, download our template which you can find by clicking the “template” button. For our pot, we created (3) pink flowers, (3) green grass sections, (3) yellow curvy strips and (3) yellow circles for the flowers’ centers.

Step 6.

 

Add more decoupage glue, place additional shapes and cover in more decoupage glue. We added the yellow strips along the top edge of the flower pot. Allow the glue to dry.

Make Glitter decoupage

 

Step 7.

 

Pour a small amount of decoupage glue into a small container. Pour some Glitter into the container and stir with a brush to mix. This will help create a sealant for the glitter after it’s applied to your craft and will lessen the amount of Glitter transfered onto other surfaces.

Using a Large Brush to cover the flower pot with the glittered glue. Tip: When the decoupage glue is wet it looks white but the glue will dry clear and shiny.
