Step Two:

Paint the lavender acrylic paint onto the pot in between on side of the tape to create a block of purple on your pot. Let this dry before painting on a second layer.

Once dry, remove the washi tape carefully to reveal beautiful clean lines on your block of colour.

Step Three:

Next, use the heart seahorse shape from the April Glittery Hands Box as a stencil. Tape it onto your pot with washi tape.

Next brush on PVA glue to the seahorse section.

Step Five:

Pop a beautiful succulent or cactus into your pot, the more seaweedy looking the better!

I also stuck my mermaid cut-out onto a cocktail stick and popped it into the plant pot too, just to bring even more mermaid vibes to this plant situation!I think it looks like she’s just swimming past some seaweed going about her mermaid business!
