Here’s a really easy Christmas decoration project that I made. I think it looks great with my pretty poinsettia but it would work for any time of year and with basically any graphic and any plant!
This French Grain Sack Planter is a very quick project. I think it took me about 20 minutes! It’s simple but adds a little wow factor to an inexpensive planter.
Easy Christmas Decorating Idea
I used the freezer paper method to transfer an image from the Graphics Fairy onto this plain white planter that I got from Ikea this summer. It would have been much easier if I had chosen something with a smoother surface!! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that!
Gotta love the Graphics Fairy! She even reversed the image already so all you have to do is transfer it it to your item. You can find the French Grain Sack Printable Here
The Graphics Fairy has a such a good step by step tutorial on how to transfer images using the Freezer paper method that I don’t think I need to repeat it. There are other ways but the method I used is #4 on the Graphics Fairy list of transfer method tutorials here.
The only thing I did that wasn’t mentioned in the tutorial was I sprayed it with a coat of sealer because the ink wouldn’t dry (might be what the planter was painted with).
Just like mums say “fall”, poinsettias say “Christmas” to me! I wish I could plant these outside like I do my mums.
I love how it looks next to my faux fireplace.
Hope you enjoyed this sweet and simple project! Give it a try!
