DIY This: Bright, Marbled Pots Using Nail Polish

Trust me, this project will make you want to marble EVERYTHING.

It's Bright Ideas Week on I Heart HGTV! All week, we're sharing projects to help you live a little more colorfully this fall. Show us how you add color to your home with #HGTVBrightIdeas.

Okay, confession time — I own WAY too much nail polish. I have a glass jar filled to the brim with every color you can imagine.

Honestly, I didn't think I'd ever make a dent in that massive collection, but then I came across the brilliant idea to marble terra cotta pots. I was pleasantly surprised to see how easily this project came together. Take a look:

Turn boring white pots into chic marbled planters with nail polish.

The best part? It doesn't stop with terra cotta pots. You can do this with coffee mugs, gift tags, coasters, candle votives and even pumpkins! The options are endless.

Now is the time to get thinking about those gift ideas. So for this holiday season, impress your friends and family with pretty and budget-friendly gifts using the nail polish technique.
