Ready for spring? Brightening things up is easy with the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid! Now, admittedly radiant orchid is not “my” color. So, when Lowe’s issued the Pantone Color of the Year design/decor challenge to the Creative Ideas bloggers, I was a bit stumped. It’s not a color we have in our house! But, it really is perfect for spring! So, I decide to do a little display of some radiant orchid flower pots for the start of our spring mantel! This project is super easy and inexpensive. In just a few minutes of work (and a few hours of drying time), you have a great touch of spring!
- Small terracotta flower pots and saucers
- Smalls plants or flowers of your choice (I went with one with a hint of purple to go with the pots)
- Pantone Radiant Orchid paint sample (& paintbrush)
Once you’ve got your supplies, just paint the pots & saucers and let dry. Once dry, pot your plants/flowers and that’s it! A super easy home décor project and great way to bring some spring color indoors! Our challenge needed to be completed early, so I’m pleased to say that my plants are still going strong 2 months later. They look great on our mantel and I’ll soon be adding to it to create a whole spring theme! How would YOU incorporate Pantone Radiant Orchid into your home decor?
