Hiii – Jessica here from The Confetti Bar, the coolest confetti shop on the block, where we believe happiness should be celebrated! I’m all about party crafts and celebrating 24/7. Or at least close.

I have a love for anything sparkly and shiny, and these iridescent unicorn themed terracotta plant pots are no exception (and they’re perfect for growing our biodegradable, plantable Sproutfetti™ confetti mixes)!

I’m going to show you how to decorate pots with Mod Podge and iridescent cello wrap today. You won’t believe how easy it is!

DIY Iridescent Pot

Gather These Supplies

  • White ceramic planter(s) OR terra cotta pots and white multisurface or outdoor paint
  • Iridescent cello wrap, cut into small pieces
  • Mod Podge (You can use any kind, really, but if you want to get a little extra fancy, try some Sparkle Mod Podge so you get a subtle glitter effect!)
  • Sponge brush (+ a plate to pour the Mod Podge to dip your brush for easy application)
  • Optional: Iridescent “snow” confetti/glitter

If your planters aren’t painted, you’ll want to paint them both inside and out with your favorite shade of white acrylic paint. Give several coats until covered and let dry.

Start by covering your planter with a thin layer of Mod Podge Gloss.

Next start adding small pieces of your iridescent cello wrap until you have your terracotta plant pots covered (use Mod Podge Gloss as necessary to get it all to stick).

If desired, coat iridescent cello with another thin layer of Mod Podge and sprinkle on some sparkle snow. Let dry completely.

After your pots are completely dry, you’re going to add soil if you choose too.

Place soil in your iridescent plant pots until the soil is right below the lip. Press down slightly but don’t pack.

Add your confetti seeds to the top if you choose – you can also just plant flowers in the pots directly.
