I have been inspired by all the great planter decor one can make, so I created this Totem Monarch Planter Decor with eyeConnect Crafts’ Totem Monarch. I forgot to take photos of every step (sorry) but I have a few to guide you to the finish.
I started by painting the Totem Monarch Planter Decor blue with Martha Stewart Craft paint in pool. Next I added Tim Holtz small nautical stamps with VersaFine Ink and clear embossing powder. I heat set the powder to get a water-resistant shinny look. I then took some white acrylic paint and splattered it on top.
After the drips were dry I took clear glue and fine glitter and applied to the Totem Monarch Planter Decor here and there. Before the glue dried I added another layer to make the glitter muted (this step is really important for the overall effect!).
Next, I added bronze paint to the edges and the back. I also painted the center piece bronze on both sides (at first I was going to paint it black).
Lastly, I added sequins to the wings. After this was dry I assembled the Totem Monarch Planter Decor with black brads and hot glued a stick to the back.
