  • white acrylic paint

If your mom loves gardening and a good pun, this is the perfect gift for her. Go with our suggestions below, or get creative with your own puns!

ALOE YOU VERA MUCH

THANKS FOR BE-LEAFING IN ME

Paint Pots

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).

Stamp Letters

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).

Apply Sealer

Once the letters are dry, spray acrylic sealer to prevent scratches and chipped paint.
