One of my favorite parts of summer is a backyard garden full of fresh fruits, veggies and herbs. We are still in planting mode around here even though the raised beds are at capacity- which means that we’re in need of some planter pots. And the pretty plants and herbs require pretty homes, right?
When I saw these Mod Podge Melts, my first thought was Mod Melts + gold spray paint = one pretty pot.
I made a whole pile of the nests (I thought they were flowers, but my kids quickly corrected me). The Mod Melts work just like hot glue- you put them in a high heat glue gun and then squirt them into the mold. After letting them cool (and repeating and repeating and repeating in my case), you have the perfect project accessories.
I used dabs of Mod Podge Melt to adhere the nests to a plain white planter that I got at IKEA.
Then, after the entire planter was covered in a pattern of nests, I turned it upside down on some cardboard and sprayed it with shiny gold spray paint (and then touched up from all sorts of different angles for full coverage).
I love the textured effect that the nests add to the planters (and can think of all sorts of other projects to embellish with the Mod Melts)!
