Patriotic Flower Pot Centerpiece Step 1

  • In a well-ventilated area, spray-paint each carton white on all sides. Allow to dry completely.

Patriotic Flower Pot Centerpiece Step 2

  • Using a paintbrush, paint an American flag across the three cartons. Allow to dry completely.
    • Tips: Be sure not to paint red over any part of the blue paint. To create more even lines, wrap four strips of painter’s tape completely around each carton. Paint over the tape with red paint, excluding the blue areas. After paint dries completely, carefully peel off the tape. Allow the blue paint do dry completely before painting the white stars.
