DIY | MARBLE FLOWER POT

So it seems as if I have turned into a little grandma with this whole flower obsession of mine. I have this little shelf in the living room and I wanted a little cactus to have on there along with the little lava rocks and shells that my son has picked up from outside, I just love keeping these little things that he finds. It also pleases him to see the things that he found on the beach or playground. Another obsession of mine is that marble foil that I own. See my previous post about it here. When I picked up this little cactus I needed a pot for it and there were none that appealed to me in that particular store. Then I found this little black, hard plastic one and I thought: marble! And that's what I did. When my boyfriend came home and saw it his instant reaction was "is everything in our house going marble from now on?". Then we had a nice laugh and moved on ... from the conversation not the marble obsession I mean.

    1. I got mine from the store Merkistofan here in Iceland and I saw a nice collection of marble foils at Bauhaus hardware store last week also that was fairly cheap. It's available on www.aliexpress.com and on this Swedish web store: http://kreatima.se/produkter/sjalvhaftande-plastfolie/sjalvhaftande-plast/sten-marmor-imitation-67-cm-bredd

  2. Pretty! I have also one meter of marble foil at home, so far I have done only some boxes, but I think it's not going to end there... :)

    1. Thank you!

      I have just finished that little bit I had of the foil but I am going to buy me some more to make some boxes that are in need of a makeover.

      Have a good weekend!
