How to craft a geode planter:
Start crafting a geode rock planter by loosely placing your glass stones on the pot and tracing the outline with a pencil to mark out the rough shape.
Mix up your acrylics and paint with a dark green. This helps so you do not see through the stones. I also added a light green paint on the edge as I planned to adhere smaller green beads in this area.
Once the paint has dried, it’s time to glue your stones and beads to the pot. I used Liquid Fusion and was so pleased with it! I loved that it dried clear, was strong enough to hold even my larger stones and had very low odor.
I started with the larger center glass stones. After they dried, I added in smaller green beads along the edges, as well as in the cracks of the larger stones. Having varied sizes adds to a more realistic look, too.
Next, I painted a strip of white along the edge and then metallic gold.
Using the Liquid Fusion again, I glued the final frosted cystals for the finishing touch!
Types of Geode Rocks
There are so many gorgeous types of geodes and some of the more commons ones include pyrite, calcite, agate, kaolinite, sphalerite, barite, dolomite, celestite, limonite, opal and smithsonite.
It’s so fun to be able to bring a beautiful geode look into your home for just a fraction of the cost, too.
I love all the texture and rich green color this project brings to my otherwise plain pot. This project only took an afternoon, but I will enjoy it for years to come!
