Do your love lavender? I sure do so, let’s see 5 ways: to style country artificial lavender pots.

Lavender has to be one of my favorite flowers the mix of their gray-green leaves with their purple flower spikes is gorgeous. Also, when I think about lavender plants, I think of their beautiful smell and their purple flowers.

In our old home, we had real lavender plants in our garden beds next to large stone walls. It was beautiful because the walls consisted of boulders from our property, and we had a much more formal garden.

So, when we built this home nine years ago, I knew having real lavender plants and lavender blooming wasn’t possible I was a bit disappointed. So, I enjoy their beauty in many other ways and I can’t wait to share how I enjoy lavender flowers in our home.

5 Ways To Style Country Artificial Lavender Pots

Styling These Artificial Lavenders In Home Decor

But today I’m speaking about how to style country faux lavender pots 5 ways in the home. Wait until you see the color and how real these faux lavender plants look. It’s amazing!

Recently, I saw these lavender pots at Antique Farmhouse these are high quality and they are still available. My heart immediately did a happy dance. You know that butterfly feeling of excitement. Again, the little things make me happy. How about you? Do little things make you happy too?

Changing These Pots With Paint

Step 1: Adding Paintc To Ther Paper Pot

Here’s when I came up with one of the best ways to change these paper pots before I styled them. Using a brush and white Gesso paint, paint a thin coat. I like using Gesso however, the white craft will work as well. This is a quick way to add a new look to the paper pot and works well for any decorating style.

One coat of Gesso gives the lavender plants and their pots a faded rustic look.

Step 2: Add a Monogram

Next using the computer in Word, choose a font and size you like. Print the letter and cut it with scissors making sure to cut it as close to the letter as possible. This will blend the monogram seamlessly on the lavender pot.


After it’s cut add Mod Podge to the back and add the graphic to the artificial lavender pot. Use my plastic wrap trick to prevent creases when decoupaging. Do this every time, it works perfectly every time so no more wrinkles.

These faux lavender pots are perfect for Mother’s Day, a birthday, or for the lavender flower lover in your life. How special does this gift make anyone feel with their own monogrammed lavender plant to style in their home?

They will think of you every time they see this special flower!

Step 3: Add Pretty Ribbon

A simple way to add a country look is by adding a ribbon. Use burlap ribbon and a piece of trim with small rose buds to add a touch of romance to the country lavender pot.
