Fab Flower Pot

This flower pot got gesso, lace, beads, and a transfer.



I decoupaged lace, glued beads, slathered it with gesso, and transferred with gel medium.  It works really well for storing cards and tags.



Just fab.

Rosemary--Just letting you know I'm including this project (with a link back) in my Re: blogpost tomorrow. Re: features earth-friendly tips and projects. This week's topic is repurposing pots. I loved this one you did and have had it pinned since you first posted it.
