Turn your boring terra cotta flower pots into a work of art through marbling!
Turn your boring terra cotta flower pots into a work of art through marbling!

We have a lot of nail polish at home – and I mean A LOT. My eldest daughter loves painting her nails, playing matchy-matchy with her outfit. Because her friends know this about her, she receives a lot of nail polish. There are a few, though, which she doesn’t like so they end up in her drawer.

This DIY project is both useful and beautiful, you can give them out as gifts.

One time, I came across a DIY project for marbled flower pots. I was drawn to them and so I asked my daughter if I could use her excess nail polish. She agreed, saying that it’s better than throwing them away. When she saw the flower pots, she was so happy seeing her “babies” imprinted on them. We can’t deny it—the finished products are so beautiful!

If you have unused bottles of nail polish at home, put them to good use. Create art out of your boring flower pots. You can also give these out as gifts to family and friends.
