Nothing beats getting outside and doing some arts and crafts. Have a read of our ideas for cool outdoor crafts you can try this summer.

Beautiful flower pots and planters!

Outdoor crafts - flower pots and planters

Are your flower pots in need of a refresh? Well summer is the perfect time to get out in the garden and upcycle them!!

You can do this easily using uni-ball’s POSCA paint markers. POSCA markers are suitable for use on plastic and ceramics so you can experiment with all different types of plant pots.

If you buy new pots you can put plant seeds in them and personalise them for your friends using POSCA pens – an ideal pretty gift for a summertime Birthday!


If you are looking to make a present for Father’s Day (or a cooking enthusiast) you should decorate some herb planters.

POSCAs come in a many different colours, so pick out greens and browns to give the planters a really rustic, natural feel!

Outdoor wall art!

Who says you only have to draw on paper!? Use uni-ball’s uni Chalk Markers  or POSCA pens to create a masterpiece outdoors.

If you are lucky enough to have a garden with a wall in it be brave and give it a splash of colour!

Set aside an afternoon and get your creative juices flowing. This is a relaxing way of getting some sunshine on your skin whilst getting arty at the same time!


No walls in your garden? Then try creating a mural on your patio. It will really help you to put your stamp on your outdoor area this summer!
