DIY Indigo Marbled Mini Planters

DIY-Indigo-Marbled-Mini-Planter

I’m not gonna lie to you guys. This DIY almost didn’t happen. I had seen so many tutorials on marbling that I wanted to try it for myself. I figured, how hard could it be? Apparently, it takes a little practice. The images you see are from my SECOND attempt. The first time I marbled these planters they were splotchy and clumpy. It was frustrating to say the least, but I hope my failure will be your success.

I remember doing tie-dye at a summer camp I went to as a kid and it was my favorite thing! I loved playing with the placement of the rubber bands to try and create cool patterns. Of course, it would never turn out how you imagined but you would convince yourself that it still looked cool.

Shibori is a Japanese technique of dying by binding, stitching, twisting, folding and compressing fabric to create intricate designs. AKA, tie-dye for adults. The main dye used in shibori is indigo. I’ve been obsessed with this deep shade of blue for a while now and am trying to figure out ways to incorporate the color into my home. These DIY indigo projects are a good start for inspiration!

Remember in my last post when I said I had bought an embarrassing amount of rope? Well, it’s because of the macrame kick I’ve been on the past few months. After seeing all the amazing macrame artists on social media , I was so inspired to learn the craft. I thought I’d shared one of the first projects I ever learned to make that is both functional and beautiful.
