A great way to recycle those common green plastic planters is to spray paint them whatever color you want with acrylic paint. I like to paint mine a flat black, makes the texture look more like clay pottery. I then take a small stencil of a butterfly and paint it onto the planter, I like to use several bright colors. I paint one color then let it dry before I add another color and so on. Once the butterflies are dry, I add the finer details to it with a small brush. I like to paint on a few butterflies around the planter.
You can use any stencil you want to make this craft your own, the possibilities are endless!
