DIY Garden Pizza Pan Craft

DIY Garden Pizza Pan Craft

How did I come up with my DIY garden pizza pan craft? When I was looking through Pinterest of course! Doesn’t everyone get inspiration from Pinterest?

When I was looking at garden ideas, these beautiful stepping stones popped up. Pinterest showed some beautiful stepping stones for pathways in the garden areas. I wanted to do a craft bringing the outdoors into my home, and not have to water it, this was a perfect idea.

 

These stepping stones inspired me. I had a pizza pan in my craft stash waiting for the perfect project, hopefully this was the one.  I’ve never seen this done before and I was hoping that inspiration and my imagination could pull it off. Hopefully my pizza pan garden will inspire you!

Perfect Project 

Once I get an idea in my head, I don’t stop till I figure it out. Being the creative person I am, I just knew I could come up with something that would fit the need. The stones are round in shape and so was the pizza pan. Being a crafter for quite some time now, I knew I would have some items in my craft stash.  I purchase items ahead of time with hopes of finding the perfect project later on down the road. So, my craft stash was the first place I headed. I had some pizza pans from awhile back with the hopes to do a future project. This seemed like the perfect project. Pizza pans were the perfect shape and size, perhaps this was a great start. Now that I had the base,  I needed to search for items found in a garden.

 

Gathering Supplies

Now I have the perfect base shape, what else could I add to make this come to life? The pizza pan was the perfect shape and it had the right depth to add things that wouldn’t slide off.  It had a lip all the way around which was a bonus!

I searched some more and came up with two bags of rocks, faux succulents, and a plastic flower pot. Wow, my pizza pan garden craft idea was coming together! Adding the garden decor was going to be the fun part.

Creating A Garden 

Okay, supplies were together and now I had to put them all together to create a garden design. The design I was going for was similar to a rock garden.

Knowing I wanted a rock garden look, succulents were a perfect choice. Every garden has something green.  Heating up my trusty glue gun, I began planning the steps to see what was going to work best. I knew for sure I was going to give this one heck of a try. After all, I’m not one to give up easily. I was determined to make my pizza pan garden piece work. Now to create the garden look I was going for.

Planning and Prepping

Now that everything was coming together let the creating begin! I applied a thin coat of mod podge with a small artist brush. Why? To prime the pan,  giving the surface a more ruffed up and not so slippery feel. It would help the hot glue adhere better.

After allowing the mod podge to dry completely, I started to create the design of my pizza pan garden. I wanted my flower pot to look like someone dropped it in the garden, so I cut the flower pot in half. I then decided to paint the pot white using Dixie Belle Paint Company’s color Cotton. Using a two-inch chip brush  , I painted the pot allowing it to dry completely before putting it into place.

Using my glue gun I glued the pot into place exactly where I wanted it. I was happy with the placement being centered. This pizza pan garden idea was starting to take shape.

Working From The Inside Out

Now that the flower pot was down, I started arranging the succulents.  I wanted to make it look like they were spilling out of the flower pot.

Starting at the opening of my flower pot, I placed the succulents and arranged them to where I thought they looked the best. I used my glue gun to hot glue each one down in place.

So far so good! Everything was coming together nicely.  I was working from the middle of my pizza pan garden and working my way to the edges. I found this the easiest way to do it. Now that the succulents were glued down, my pizza pan garden was shaping up!

 

Adding The Rocks

Once my succulents were hot glued into place, I wanted to add rocks to give it the rock garden design. After all, I was going for a garden decor look. I wanted to bring the outside indoors. I was excited with the results so far.

Once again I began working from the middle of my pizza pan garden. I arranged the rocks around the succulents working my way to the edges. This took a little patience because the  rocks were different shapes and sizes, but was so worth the effort in the end.

Once I got all the rocks in place, I used my glue gun  and glued the rocks down. I found putting a line of glue on the pizza pan worked easier and quicker than trying to hot glue the rocks one at a time. My pizza pan garden was looking good! I loved the way it was coming out.

Final Details

I allowed my pizza pan garden to sit overnight and completely dry. I still had the lip of the pizza pan to deal with. Not wanting it shiny, I decided to use a jute rope for the edges.  I choose jute because it had a rustic look and would go perfectly with the look I was trying to create.

I heated up my glue gun again and started to hot glue the jute rope to the pizza pan. I started at the bottom and worked my way around the lip to completely cover the edge. I applied hot glue first and place the jute rope on top. Doing about three inches at a time until the entire lip was covered making a finished edge with the jute rope.

Finally, my DIY pizza pan garden craft was done, and looked fabulous! I hope I inspired you to create your DIY pizza pan garden craft! I’d love to see pictures of your creations, you can share them in my Facebook group: The Passionate Painted Lady Creative Community!
