Today I’m delighted to have teamed up with Wayfair to bring you this really simple ombre planter tutorial – perfect for adding a splash of colour to your garden, what ever the size. It’s SO easy to make and will turn into a fantastic mini cut flower bed once the warmer months finally arrive. I’ve filled mine with my favourite spring flowers like ranunculus, muscari and tiny viola’s, when they fade I’ll re-sow with pot loving seeds to create a mini cut flower patch that I can move around the garden. Here’s how to make…
Step 1 – Mix your paint. You’ll need three different shades, here I used white with a tiny drop of pink, pink with about a tablespoon of white paint added and pure pink. You might want to play around with amounts to get your own colours but ideally you are looking for a gentle ombre across the three colours.
Step 2 – Starting with the palest colour working down to the darkest colour – paint each wooden section with two coats of paint, leaving to dry in between each coat.
Step 3 – Leave the paint to dry completely before planting up with flowers of your choice.
A huge thank you to Wayfair for sponsoring this post – opinions, tutorial, styling and images are all my own.
