Frida Kahlo Flower Pot Making | The matter of style

Some time ago, I made a video where I introduced the plants in my home, that is, my children 🙂 In this video, I shared 2 different flowerbed productions. One of these Frida Kahlo. This flowerpot was inspired by. When it comes to a strong character like Frida, you don’t have much to do. But I want to share it with you both because I love the idea and it is very easy to make.

You can make Frida flower pot for yourself or as a gift of a cactus or succulent to a loved one. Because the cactus that you planted after making this flower pot will look like Frida’s bun, I can’t think of a better gift packaging 🙂


  • Soil or plastic pot close to the skin color
  • Artificial flowers
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Black marker pen
  • Hot silicone
  • Masking tape

I start by taping the pot with masking tape from the top two fingers down. Since this part will be a hair strip, I paint it with black acrylic paint and let it dry.

Of course, our aim in this project is not to draw well, to create a legendary character. Unfortunately, I do not have such a painting skill. We will try to implement only characteristically prominent features such as Harry Potter piggy bank, which I have shown before.

What comes to your mind when you say Frida? Frown eyebrows, flower crowns and knobs, of course. So don’t forget to fill in between your eyebrows while drawing a face in the flowerpot;)

I first pass over the lines that I draw with a pencil on the flowerpot and then with a marker pen.

Now it’s time for Frida’s flower crown. Your gum will be ready when you cut the ones you like from artificial flowers from the bottom and paste them with hot silicone. I recommend using hot silicon that you will stick on acrylic paint because uhu-style adhesives melt acrylic paint.

After finishing the project, I planted a ball cactus in it. So I got the image of a bun exactly as I wanted it. But I said I wish I had made your lips red too. Maybe you will make your red lips and share it with me. See you in the new project;)
