our first garden this year! Which means we've been doing a lot of garden-related projects and crafts. Did you catch our pallet planter? Well to spruce up our patio with more colorful pots for our plants without breaking the bank, we decided to buy several terra cotta pots that were on sale at Old Time Pottery (they were a steal!) and get our creative juices going! For our medium and small sized pots we did fabric pots--you can see how we did those here. The larger terra cotta pots got a bit of a different makeover! So, we went over to our local hardware store and picked up a few spray paint colors, painters tape, and some old boxes.
Terra Cotta Pots Makeover
+Spray Paint in a variety of colors-at least two. We chose a turquoise and yellow.
+Old boxes or painters blanket
Step by Step
Step 1: Setup a spray station! Use old boxes or a painters blanket outside on the grass. Then spray the entirety of the terra cotta pots in one color. We painted one large pot in yellow and the other in turquoise. This will be the color of the pattern you choose to do. We sprayed additional coats every 15-20 minutes-and ended up having three coats of spray paint. This made a great foundation of color. I was so tempted to stop at this stage because I fell in love with how our pots turned out just with spray paint but that wouldn't have been much of a tutorial or terra cottta pot makeover now would it?
I have to say, I'm in love with how they turned out! I can't wait to make more but I think I'm going to make smaller scaled ones. What designs would you do? I'm definitely contemplating plus symbols and triangles! Have you ever done a terra cotta pot makeover? Don't forget to comment and subscribe to continue seeing everything we have to share.
