Pebble Flower Pot


Finished item 

Pebbles and stones to use ....

*  Choose a selection of pebbles and roughly shape your flowers 
so that you are able to gain a perspective as to spacing around the pot. 

Plain old terracotta pot

 I’ve placed the flowers randomly, with different sizes all around the pot.

*  Make sure that you choose pebbles that naturally slot in with the others.  
You will develop a good eye with practice and time 
and may even find that just the right little pebble will stand out from the others,
 as though it is meant to be.

*  Once complete, allow the pot to dry fully.  
One to two days is ideal.

*  Take a small amount of glue and mix it with water in a plastic bowl or tub. 
Using a soft, clean paint or craft brush, stir and blend the solution until all the glue is dissolved and a weak, white liquid is achieved.  
*  Gently, yet liberally paint the glue solution into all the crevices between the pebbles, ensuring that every section of the entire pot is saturated.  
Allow to dry for at least a day or two.

*  Spray tile waterproofing spray all over the finished project, 
making sure that you get it into all the tiny gaps between the pebbles.

*  All finished :)
