Dressed Up Flower Pots - Weekend Yard Work Series

Today I have a very simple project to share... one that you can completely use your imagination with too! There are no rules, no patterns, and there is absolutely no "right way" to do this project!

Painted terracotta flower pots

Remember my patio inspiration post? More specifically, the painted flower pots from that post?

Here is that inspiration photo.

I just happened to have several terracotta pots that were ready to be dressed up!

I used regular white craft paint and painted my designs free hand.

If you want more of a perfect look then you could definitely make a pattern for yourself... but I like the freehand look... the less perfect, the more perfect in my eyes :o)

They look really cute all grouped together with mums and Johnny Jump Ups (or Pansies) for fall.

I love this one with the little chicken wire cloche :o)

Very cute! A little paint does wonders for terra cotta!

Tania @ Run to Radiance said...

So cute, Tania! What kind of paint did you use? I love how opaque it is!

Love your pots Tania...you must have a steady hand to paint all that free hand! Where did you get that chicken wire cloche? I love it.

Thank you Florence! I don't remember where I got the cloche, I've had it forever. I think it would be pretty easy to make one though!


Little Vintage Cottage said...

Thanks Tania, I just used regular craft paint and a sponge brush!
