Do you have a green thumb? With this tutorial, you may end up with one! Learn how to create a 3D flower pot with this tutorial, including soil and flower!

STEP ONE

Make sure you have no fill color. Choose a color for your stroke color. The color you choose for the stroke color will become the color for your flower pot. I chose a gray color. Using the Pen Tool, we’re going to draw the right side of the flower pot. Let’s begin with drawing the top part:

We need to convert the second point to an anchor. This is easily done just by clicking the point again. You’ll notice that the handle that was pointing diagnally downward is now gone:

STEP TWO

Let’s continue by drawing the middle part of the flower pot:

Again, we need to convert this point to an anchor. This is easily done just by clicking the point again. You’ll notice that the handle that was pointing diagnally downward is now gone:

STEP THREE

Now let’s finish by drawing the bottom part of the flower pot:

STEP FOUR

Now that we have the right side of the flower pot drawn out, we can use the 3D Revolve effect to create the 3d flower pot! With the path selected, go to Effect > 3D > Revolve and use the following settings:

That should leave you with the following result:

STEP FIVE

Let’s add some more details like soil and maybe a flower! Again, using the Pen Tool and the methods you just learned with the previous steps, draw the following shape and give a brown fill with no stroke:

We’ll add some texture to give a more realistic look. With the shape still selected, go to Effect > Texture > Texturizer and use the following settings:

That should leave you with the following result:

STEP SIX

To finish it off, let’s add some flowers! You could draw your own, but to make it easier, there are some nice flowers already made and available within Illustrator. Open your Symbols palette by going to Window > Symbols and look for Flowers in the Symbols Library.

STEP SEVEN

Drag the flower into your design and position to your liking. You will also have to do some editing to get the flower to appear like it’s in the pot. Here’s my final result:
