This tutorial is part of the Jo-­Ann Fabric And Craft Stores® National Craft Month #craftmonthlove campaign. Jo-Ann sponsored this post and all opinions are mine.

Geometric patterns are everywhere this spring and I’m obsessed. I have been pinning geometric inspiration all over the place. My favorite geometric patterns are asymmetrical ones like this one. And this one too. I wanted to make my own geometric creation for spring.

This DIY geometric planter looks modern and intricate but is really easy for beginning painters to do.

I don’t know about you but I’m more than ready for to kiss this cold weather goodbye. It’s been a brutal winter season here in Chicago — brutal with a Capital B. This DIY painted geometric planter was just the thing to help me forget how many times I shoveled snow this season. Hello, spring!

Supplies for making a DIY Geometric Painted Planter: (you can get it all at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store)

How to make a DIY Geometric Painted Planter:

Gather your supplies. Clean off your planter using an alcohol wipe and let it dry.

Place a strip of painter’s tape onto the self-healing cutting mat and cut 1/8″ strips using a craft knife. Tape from corner to corner and press firmly down to avoid paint seeping under the tape. I chose triangle shapes for this planter but you could use whatever you like.

The asymmetry means you can skip measuring and planning it out; just start making triangles and keep going.

My craft assistant Elise thought the tape made a good mustache and beard. Comedy and crafting, huzzah!

Paint triangles in two light coats.

I used three coats of gold metallic.

Now I’ve been told that it’s best to try to remove the strips when the paint is still dry. I must paint really slowly because my paint is almost always dry before I can peel it up.

I learned the hard way the last time that I painted ceramics to score the blue paint strips before peeling it back. Just run a craft knife slowly against the side of the painter’s tape and then gently pull it up. Go slowly here and you’ll avoid touch ups.

Follow your paint instructions to cure the paint. My multi-surface paint label said that it will air cure in 21 days OR bake in an oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

You could also paint a large planter for outdoors too using outdoor paint. Tell me – what would you make with geometric shapes?
