The first DIY of 2017! Has anyone else become obsessed with holographics on all the things? I blame Ban.do and all their cute stuff for my love. And I am warning you, there may be more holographic DIYs in your future… It is just the pop of color I love without being TOO over powering.
Here is the method to cut out the sheet of paper (these steps are from my marble pot DIY which is why the colors are different)
Mark off a spot with tape- this tells you where to begin and end your tracing. Since we had white pots this time, we marked a spot off with pencil.
Rotate your pot on paper and trace the pot as you go. Use the taped seam to know your beginning and end.
Once your lines are drawn- connect them at the ends.
Cut it out! I cut my template on normal paper first, made sure it matched the pot size then used the template to cute the holographic paper. It is not necessary to do this, but you may want to your first time so you do not waste any holographic paper.
Put it on your pot! I make the sentence sound easy… The paper bubbles very easy and it is difficult to get smooth. It takes a few times to smooth out the bubbles. The good news is after I did the best job I could do and there were STILL a couple bubbles in the paper, the paper somehow evened itself out on the pot later, so maybe I did not need to work so hard 😉 The smaller pots were easier to manage for the bubble problem.
I know it is a little too soon for Valentine’s Day, but wouldn’t these planters make a perfect gift? The colors are perfect! Hope you enjoyed! xo
