Here's another great use for those flat decorative marbles. I love the colors used in this dreamy jeweled planter by Centsational Girl. These are a great way to glam up your patio, but I think they would also be fantastic for wedding decorations or centerpieces, or as decor for a baby or wedding shower. They would even be fun for a little girl tea party or princess party. Really, you can adapt them for a ton of uses just by switching out the paint and marble colors.

Project Estimate:

  • Terra cotta planter, $1
  • Outdoor spray paint, $3 or on hand
  • Glass marbles (with flat side), $1
  • Silicone rubber sealant from hardware store to adhere marbles, $3.23

Total: $5.23 plus $1 for each additional planter

    If you’re considering this for a party, maybe serve these Springy Flower Pot Desserts in a small plastic container tucked inside (easy clean-up for one good reason, plus you don’t want to mix food and something you recently painted, ya know?)

    Thanks so much for the post, and the publicity. These still look lovely over a month later on my patio table. Everyone loves them!

    Too cute!! I have quite a few terra cotta pots unused this year in the garage. I think I’ll go get me some paint and some jewels!!
