It should be of no surprise to find out that I have willingly and happily jumped on the crafting face planter train.  I actually having been making some version of “face vases” for a whiiiiiiile.  Check out my Christmas Winter Lady, Plastic Cup Pumpkin Planter and my Face Vase with Faux Plants.

I first saw Jonathon Adler come out with a face bud vase a few years ago.  Then they slowly started popping up here and there, but were still almost impossible to get your hands on a set.

Magically fast forward to current day and they are now all over the place.  I have had one from Anthropologie on my wish list for so long and my husband got it for me for Christmas!! She’s SO beautiful.

Do my pots need a drainage hole?

Yes! Always yes. It is so important to make sure your pots come with a drainage hole. Often times the more decorative pots do not. If they don’t you can always use a drill bit and add one to the bottom of your planter. Or another option is to leave your plant in the plastic grow pot it came in from the nursery and then place that into your more decorative “pretty” pot.

This allows for the water to run through the soil when watering and you can pour out any excess water, so the roots are sitting in water.

Make DIY Ceramic Face Pots using a Vinyl cutter-

I already own a Silhouette Printer, but if you don’t you can STILL make this project!  A silhouette simply makes it a little easier to get the exact shape and detail you are looking for.

My first step was to buy and download a set of eyes, glasses and lips from the Silhouette Store online.  Then, I selected my vinyl colors (white, gold and pink) and had the printer cut out the shapes.

As you will note from the images below, I started off with sweet little pink lips on my Mrs, but eventually decided to keep with all gold on her and changed up her smile while I was at it.

Using Transfer Paper for small planter Face details

Also, here is my HUGE tip for this project.  If you have a ton of detail on your face items, I highly recommend you use transfer paper.  I can’t tell you how many projects I’ve had to do 8+ times because I wasn’t able to center the vinyl properly or it was at an odd angle.

Once your shape is cut, remove the excess vinyl so you are left with just the items you are going to apply.  Then remove the backing from the transfer paper.  Using the sticky side, adhere the transfer paper to the front of your vinyl items.

You should be able to see through the transfer paper and using the grid on the paper, you can align everything perfectly.

Rub gently and then remove the transfer paper.  Your adhesive vinyl should stick just perfectly.

    1. Oh thank you so much, Neelam! You could simplify the faces a bit and probably cut them out with scissors or an x-acto knife, too.
