Marbelized Nail Polish Flower Pot
Mother’s Day will soon be here and this Marbelized Nail Polish Flower Pot that we made from a plastic cup is a fun craft for the kids to make to present a small flower to Mom or Grandma on that special day. We used a solo cup, but this method works on lots of materials. If you have just had a party and used white cups, what a great way to recycle them into something pretty and useful.
White Plastic Cup
Medium Sized Disposeable Container
Nail Polish (various colors)
Toothpick or Skewer
Seeds or potted plant
Cover your work area with newspapers.
Put on gloves.
Fill your container half full with room temperature water.
Dribble various colors of nail polish into the water and gently swirl with a toothpick or skewer.
With your hand inside the cup turn it so that the entire surface has been coated with polish.
Lift the cup out and it dries instantly into this beautiful marbelized finish.
We selected a potted violet for our project but you can fill the cup with dirt and plant flower seeds that are fun to watch as they grow and bloom.
Editor's Note: This is a fun technique to use on all kinds of projects.
We found that the really cheap nail polish did not work as well on this project.
