Glittered planter bowl


This winter was the longest I’ve ever experienced.  I spent it dreaming of the coming summer…

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”     —Emma Goldman

One problem I’ve encountered year after year is how fast planters can dry out. Smoothfoam’s density ensures that moisture won’t leach out like it does with a clay pot. The extra bonus is that it’s lightweight and easy to paint and glitter. This is a quick and easy project that’s fun for the whole family to add some colorful sparkle to your patio or countertop.


Smoothfoam Half-Ball (any size you like)
Folk Art Extreme Gliitter paints (Chunky Gold, Chunky Silver, Rose)
Gold glitter glue
Sponge brush

1.  Punch a few drainage holes in the base of the Smoothfoam half-ball with the screwdriver.

2.  Paint the outside of the half-ball with the three paint colors – blending and swirling as desired. Let dry.

3.  Doodle a scalloped border around the edge with gold glitter glue and let dry.

4.  Plant your favorite herbs or other plants inside and place a saucer underneath.
