I decided it was time to try my hand at some crafts again in my spare time, because I love to garden I chose to paint some clay pots from inspiration from all over the internet including Pinterest! Feel Free To Pin There are so many great ideas, these are a few!I decided by the colors of acrylic paint I had on hand. Gold of course being a favorite, its shiny and I’m a sparkly kinda girl, like diamonds! Now for me anything in crafting has to be fun and easy. So, I started with the basic terracotta pot, painted the rim “gold, letting it dry, I painted again. Then I painted the base with pretty turquoise. After letting it dry, (in the desert you dont have to wait long) I used a course bristle brush to make the swashes of gold all the way around. I will finish with a coat of Krylon Clear paint to seal the acrylic paint and protect the pot from water damage. Easy Peasy!Pop Art Diva Hand Painted Clay Pots
Check these out she has great ideas I love the one with black squares, I think I need to buy a basket full of pots. Oh and clay pots arent just for planting, you can use them for storing craft supplies, on your bathroom counter, kitchen, the possibilities are endless.
What other uses do you think of? I really want to try some with Modge Podge, I saw a great video on how it is done. The one above I found on Canary Street Crafts . These can be done with paper that is printed in reverse and you an use, photos or fabric! And you can find printable’s at the Graphics Fairy
These are great and you could get the kids involved, let them create their own to plant in containers, did you read my article on how teaching kids to plant in containers will build their self esteem?
