This illustrator tutorial will show you how to create a 3D flower pot.
Set fill colour to none and pick a colour for the stroke. This will be the colour of the flower pot. Here I used a grey colour. Using the Pen Tool, draw the right side of the flower pot. Let’s draw the top part first:
Continue drawing the middle part of the flower pot.
Again, convert this point to an anchor as we did before.
Finish drawing the bottom part of the flower pot. On the right side of the flower pot we have just drawn, use the 3D Revolve effect to complete the flower pot. Select the path and navigate to Effect > 3D > Revolve and use the following settings:

Let’s add some flowers to the pot! Open your Symbols palette by going to Window > Symbols and look for Flowers in the Symbols
Drag the flower into the design and position it. Do some editing to get the flower to appear like it’s in the pot.
