Happy Little Engram


This month’s TSNEM (Try Something New Every Month) theme is painting. While it’s not something I particularly enjoy — especially after painting the entire house last year — there was a project that I had been considering doing since I saw TahoeAnime’s tweet last year.


Bam. A planter the Cryptarch would love.

If you have ten bucks and want to add that Destiny flair to your garden, go run to your local Target. You’ll need the planter, paint, a small brush or mini paint roller and, for those of you who want to cheat like I did,  a chalkboard paint marker (I found mine in the dollar section).

Then, paint (I used three coats, being sure to let it dry completely before adding the next coat or you’ll just pull up the paint.) your little engram.


You’ll have to wait about 24 hours to do the next part which is adding the details. Now look, if you want to get white paint and  a little paintbrush and paint the lines on, you have my complete respect. I just pulled up an image of the engrams Bungie sells and set to work with my paint marker.

Then, pop in an adorable plant and you’ve got yourself a very geeky planter.
