How to Make a DIY Hello Planter that’s Perfect for Spring

Hello, friends! It’s the second Thursday of the month and that means Silhouette Creator’s challenge time! Each month a few crafty gals and I create something awesome with our Silhouette machines! Previous challenges include: Harry Potter t-shirt,  British phone booth art,  Coldplay lyric tote bagcrochet hook storage boxbeach finds treasure bag, pumpkin spice tea towel, a hello fall mason jar vase, a utensils holder, glittery art, and some helpful planner clips.

This month’s theme was Spring Fever – we just had to make something that could fit into a springy category! One of my favorite things about Spring are all the plants and flowers that come into bloom. I may be a notorious plant killer, so I go for the faux route, but whether real or fake, I just love having a ton of potted plants around the house come springtime! For this challenge I decided to make a fun little cheery hello planter using a bit of vinyl and my Silhouette CAMEO.

I whipped up this cute little hello banner in my Silhouette design software by using a stock banner from their design store and then adding my own letters to spell out h-e-l-l-o. I sized it to fit my pot and selected vinyl as the material in the Cut Menu.

Insert your vinyl in your machine (I used a scrap, which is why it’s creased), and then hit ‘Send to Silhouette’ on my computer! It printed out nice and quick.

Using a piece of transfer tape, I moved my hello planter design from the vinyl backing over to my planter with a scraper tool! And that’s it! Easy peasy for a fun hello planter that will make your Spring all the cheerier 🙂
