DIY Succulent Pots

So I found these painted white pots in the supply closet at work.  We are in the process of cleaning out our supply closet of all the leftover items from past craft events. There are about 30 years of leftover crafts in there. Yeah...Its pretty bad... Anyway there were only a few pots left and not enough to do any type of programming with, (I'm a Children's Librarian) so I saved them from the trash pile and decided to decorate them for the new succulent babies.

Step 1: Paint Clay Flower Pot White and let it dry. (Luckily this step was done for me.)
Step 2: Grab a Sharpie!! (Aren't they the best?)
Below I made a hole punch in a piece of card stock and used it as a stencil. I randomly placed black spots to make a funky spotted design.

 For this next design I used some painters tape to mark the design I wanted, and then filled it in with Sharpie . SO EASY!
 Some of the finished products:

 Obviously they aren't perfect but I had a lot of fun making them!
(Need good eraser to get rid of those pencil marks, oops...)
