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! Painted Clay Pots-Oh My Heartsie Girl Feel Free To Pin There are so many great ideas, these are a few!encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.comI 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!Simple To Paint Clay Pots 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 Plant PotsPop Art Diva Hand Painted Clay Pots

What other uses do you think of? terra-cotta-pot-closeup-Canary Street CraftsI 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
