DIY Projects with Flex Seal



During the Fall, I love to spend time outside in my backyard with friends and family. We enjoy sitting around the fire while the kids roast marshmallows. The weather right now is perfect for enjoying our outdoor space so I decided to add a pop of color with Flex Seal before our next gathering.

Outdoor Space Inspiration

This is the perfect time for you to add a pop of color to your space too because in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Flex Seal is offering a limited edition can of PINK Flex Seal.


For every can of PINK Flex Seal sold during the month of October, $1 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.


Adding a Pop of Color with FlexSeal

My outdoor space was gray and plain, not very welcoming. I added a pop of color with Flex Seal, which is great for both indoor and outdoor projects.

I wanted a bright noticeable difference throughout my space so I used blue Flex Seal.

Flex Seal After

I left the bottom of our fire pit black and I think that really brings out the bright blue color. We never use the lid when burning so I wasn’t worried about a fire hazard but I strongly recommend not using a flammable product near an open flame.

I also added some color to the legs of the tables, a tray for drinks, and the top of a decorative bowl, giving it an ombre effect. I found that out mid spray, it turns out if you spray the top of a curved item it will hit all of the right places and leave a nice fade at the bottom.

Flexseal Before

Everything looked so dark and dreary before but after adding the color it really changed the look and feel of the whole space.

Flex Seal Crafts

Another fun idea that I had mid-project, was spraying down my old brick path that leads to the gate. It was really faded and boring, practically screaming for a makeover.

Spray Paint Craft

I pulled the grass patches out, swept it off, and then added a much needed coat of Flex seal.

Flex Seal Project

I added some white hearts to random squares and hung up some old chargers on the fence. I sprayed black, white, and blue lines on them and added a heart. I really think the little touches like this make the space feel more welcoming.

To insure you apply Flex Seal correctly follow the below steps:

1. Make sure the surface is clean and dry.

2. Shake well and spray using even sweeping motion.

3. Spray a larger area than area where the leak is and feather the edges

4. Let it dry completely (may take up to 24-48hrs to cure)

5.Apply several even coats until all the cracks and holes have been filled.
*For best results, apply several coats rather than one thick coat.

I can think of a million projects to use Flex Seal for and I want to hear your creative ideas,too! Enter below for your chance to win a grab bag of Flex Seal colors and be sure to comment with your creative ideas!

  1. Linda Smith says:

    I have wanted to try the Flex Seal, but money is tight since being laid off. I live in a very old house with many problems. Would love the chance to try your product!

  2. I have a utility sink in my basement that this would be great for. In white I would like to spray this around all of our windows to fill in all of the cracks that I missed when I caulked them. With so many colors the potential is limitless.

  3. Birdiebee says:

    I have some old metal outdoor chairs that need to be repainted and this flex seal would likely do the trick.

  4. Summer B. says:

    I would love to use this for my basement.

  5. What a creative way to liven up your patio with a pop of color and seal it in! My husband is remodeling the tree fort he built for our three children and Flex Seal would be perfect for the upgrade.

  6. Occasionally I find moisture under our sinks and I worry it will damage the wood. It would be great to spray a coat of this on the cabinet floor under the sink to protect it from the moisture. I think it would also be great in the cupboards in place of contact paper. It looks like it would provide a slip resistant surface that also protects the cabinets from the moisture of accidentally putting away a wet cup or plate.

  7. We read Mercy Watson Goes For a Ride and my kids and I loved it! Such a fun book…can’t wait to read more.

  8. Tanya+Devenney says:

    I would love to try this product. I have a couple broken flower pots I could use flex seal on

  9. I would use it on kid toys, crafty outdoor projects.

  10. Lindsey Khatri says:

    I would love to use it on our porch swing! I think it would be so pretty and better than having to paint and/or seal it every year!

    • A porch swing would be fantastic, maybe I need to install one. I will tell my husband it’s for a DIY post. If it’s for work then I have to do it, right?

  11. Aren’t you worried about using this on the mesh cover for the firepit? Is it fire-safe? I would think it would give off fumes when heated.

    I would like to use this to cover an old, leaky birdbath I have.

    • Yes my husband had the same concern but we never use the lid when burning so since it is more of a decorative piece, I thought it should look pretty. Thanks for the heads up though. I think I will add a little more info so nobody gets the wrong idea. Good Luck!

  12. I have an older style porch bench that needs to have new wood on it, it would be real cool to paint the metal ends a bright color!

  13. kara+kudro says:

    I would use flex seal on an old metal table we have that could use a pop of color.

  14. I would love to try this product.

  15. This would be fun to use to redo the cover on the back patio. There are spots that leak and it would also make it look a lot nicer.

  16. You have NO IDEA how excited I am to try this product! I love DIY projects, and living in Massachusetts a lot of things we leave outside year round just get so worn, faded and junky looking! This would be perfect for sprucing up some of our outdoor furniture and pieces on my son’s playhouse!

  17. laurie murley says:

    I really don’t have any great ideas what I would do with it, but I ‘m sure their is something around my house I could use it on

  18. This would go great on my outdoor planter

  19. Diana Hatch says:

    I have all kinds of projects this would be great for!

  20. I would use Flex Seal on some outdoor plant hangers to add color to the backyard.

  21. Wendy Pesce says:

    I would use some different colors and paint some planters to add more color to my yard

  22. Dawn Hecke says:

    I’d use it to redo my lawn chairs.

  23. Leah Shumack says:

    I love the idea of doing the brick path! I have a little patio section in my backyard with bricks down that would look so nice with some color on it!

  24. I love adding decorative lights.

  25. My Dad has several different cans of Flex Seal, and I have no clue what he uses them for. I will have to ask him.
