Paint the pots using white acrylic paint and a foam paintbrush (Image 1). Let dry, and apply a second coat. Don't forget to paint the rim (Image 2).
Once dry, stamp on the letters (Image 1). Tip: Practice on a scrap piece of paper first, and use a paper towel to wipe off edges of each stamp to prevent smudges on the pots (Image 2).
Once the letters are dry, spray acrylic sealer to prevent scratches and chipped paint.
Add Mom's favorite plants, and surprise her for Mother's Day.
