Crafting with Markers - Retro DIY Planter

Easy DIY Retro Planter using Posca Markers

Happy Friday everyone! This week I couldn't wait to try out these new markers I discovered (well, they've probably been around forever but it's my first time hearing of them). They are markers from Japan called Uni POSCA.  A little tidbit about me....In college, I actually minored in Japanese and Majored in East Asian Studies and Ancient History so I found these markers online while checking out blogs from Japan. If you would like to give them a try CLICK HERE.  They are very bright, water based markers,  and if you've ever used Japanese Gel pens these feel like a marker version of that. 

I've already got ideas for more ways to decorate with these markers so I hope you enjoy this first diy in my Friday series of crafting with markers! Specifically, POSCA markers because, yes! They are just that great! 


  • Uni Posca Markers in blue, pink, and yellow

  • Fern plant and white ceramic planter

  • Rocks and flamingo (optional)
