Items needed to make your own marbled monogram flower pot:

Paint the entire pot with a light color of craft paint.  If your pot is already your desired color, feel free to skip this step.  I recommend painting inside and out to get a finished appearance to your final product.  This will take several coats.  Be sure to dry in between coats.  Allow to dry completely before continuing.

Now we are going to add the marbled finish in a few quick and easy steps.  You may want to wear plastic gloves during these steps.  Take an old plastic tub outside and fill with water.  Spray your spray paint onto the surface of the water.  Dip in your flower pot.

Then quickly turn the flower pot on the surface of the water.  The spray paint will adhere to your surface in a variety of areas leaving you with a marbled paint appearance.
