DIY: Easy Flower Pot Decor

Some of the DIY projects I do are pretty intricate and take a bit of time,
while others are quite easy and are completed in a matter of minutes.
This month's DIY project fell in the latter category.

The Pier1 location closest to my apartment closed recently,
but before closing they had a massive sale for the whole store.
I snagged a few item including a small flower bunch for this DIY project.

I LOVE having fresh cut flowers around my apartment
but potted plants are pretty much a no-go because of bugs.
Instead I use fake plants to decorate and today I'm creating my own!

The Goods:
Glue Stick
Small Flower Bunch

Heat up your hot glue gun for a few minutes,
then put a thick coat of glue around the rim of the pot.

If it gets a little messy, that's okay because your flowers will cover it!

Before the glue dries, place your small flower bunch on top of the vase.
Press down just slightly so they stay stuck to the glue. 

Lastly, figure out where to display your super easy DIY project!

I wasn't joking when I said this one was easy.
It took me just a few minutes to complete,
and waiting for the glue gun to heat up took the most time!
