Spring is in the air! And one of the prettiest things about Spring is the blooming flowers. They brighten up a backyard garden or make fabulous gifts.

Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation week are right around the corner, and these pretty painted planters would make perfect gifts for Mom or teacher. I had the pleasure of designing a Spring project with FrogTape® Chevron Shape Tape™. FrogTape how-to

My crafty tween and I got a little crafty this past weekend, and wanted to share how easy it is to use this fancy tape:

 

To design and personalize our Spring planters, I started with inexpensive planters in fun colors that I found at my local Target recently.

Supplies I used:

  • Solid colored plastic or ceramic planters
  • FrogTape® ChevronShape Tape™
  • Americana Multi-Surface Satin Neon Paints and Silver
  • Scissors
  • Sponge brushes

 

And this is step-by-step how we created these pretty planters:

STEP 1: Plan out your design, and cut strips of FrogTape® Shape Tape™ to size, leaving excess to fold over any edges.

STEP 2: Apply your strips of FrogTape® Shape Tape™ on your surface making sure to securely press your tape into place. Pick out your paint colors.

STEP 3: Use a sponge brush to paint up to and over the edge of your FrogTape® Shape Tape™ design.

STEP 4: Before paint is dry, carefully peel off FrogTape® Shape Tape™ to reveal your design.

STEP 5: Let the paint dry on your pot.

What makes FrogTape® Shape Tape™ so special?

ONE – it’s shaped! I tried the chevron, but you can also try the curvy design.

TWO – it’s the only tape with treated with PaintBlock® Technology. PaintBlock is a super-absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed.

I love how our painted Spring planters turned out. And none of our designs were the same. We got some really pretty results and cool chevron designs.
