neon dipped succulent pots ...


with neon, and "dipped" things being such a trend right now, i decided to make a little neon dipped clay pot for my children's teacher appreciation gifts for the end of the school year.

this was a great project, because it is very simple to do, and your children can even get in on the action and help paint the pots!  i filled mine with succulents, because i just love succulents, and frankly they are the only plant i can keep alive, ha!

you only need a few supplies to get started!
head on over to hellobee for the full step by step tutorial on how to neon dip clay pots.  these would make great gifts, or add some pizzaz to your party table!

Thanks for sharing this idea, it's going into my "party" file. I would love to do this with 8 or 10 pots scattered down a buffet table and then guests could take them home.
If I was a teacher I would love to recieve one of these!!

These are awesome! I have never been a fan of just plain terracotta but it is like they are whole new pots with the neon.
