Cumquat Makes... Frida Khalo POM POMS!


This weekend we were inspired by the amazing work of Jones & Co and their 'Faces' range of pots.

As the Frida Khalo vases (see below!) landed in our stores on & on our website Saturday, we decided to do a little bit of our own FriD-I-Y!

We took a plain succulent pot and got creative.

To emulate Frida's famous flower garland, but in a fresh and fun way, we made some super easy pom poms using the tutorial below.

Next we took some twine & a hot glue gun and created Frida's features, using stick on velcro to create that famous monobrow!

Not satisfied that our Frida fun was over, we grabbed the paints and painted an abstract portrait in acrylics to accompany the pot.

See the results below! What do you think? Which icon should we create next?
