Who remembers when we made these marbled hanging planters a few years ago? They were such a hit, that today, we're back to give them a fun update. We used more muted colors (less neon!) and opted to keep them as regular planters to place on a shelf or stack. It's such a fun way to bring multiple colors to a plain pot, and the possibilities are endless to create your own unique work of art. Check it out...

Here's how...
1. Fill bin with water until the water is about 3-4" deep.
2. Working quickly before the nail polish dries, pour nail polish colors onto the surface of the water, and stir only slightly with the skewer.
3. Carefully dip and spin the planter into the nail polish. It's fun to make each one unique, so try different colors and cover some of the planters higher up!
