I’m a bit OBSESSED with color blocking > wether we are talking about wall art or notebooks. I saw this craft idea on a fellow craft bloggers Instagram and just had to give it a go for myself! Belows the supply list & let’s get started!
“>Terra-cotta Pots! As many as you want to paint. I’ve included my a link to what I purchased off of Amazon (affiliate link).
Paint! I chose “>orange, “>pink, “>navy, “>black and “>white. OR you can buy a “>variety pack of paint here.
Be sure to pick up cacti or herbs and dirt to fill your pots ☺️☺️ (I’ve actually ordered succulents off of amazon and I was completely surprised by how incredible they were. “>Check out what I purchased here). For only $15 these little cuties were absolutly perfect.
Now let’s get started! First I want to share with you my favorite tip: always use terra-cotta pots with painting projects; the clay asorbs paint, allowing it to quickly dry. If you are looking to hot glue, let’s say florals always use the PLASTIC terra-cotta looking pots, plastic adheres better to hot glue.
For this project, start off with giving your pots a good coat of white paint. You can use a spong or brush to apply it, you don’t need to be too particular about getting it perfectly even > you’ll be covering it up later.
Next > get inspired. Check out Pinterest or copy the patterns I did on my pots! There are so many options!
Start taping off your pots. Horizontal, diagonal or vertical strips OR HECK just pant cute white starts on yours (like I did).
After Taping off the pots, start adding some color! My first pot is this cute half orange/pink and black stripped cutie.
Add even more character to your pots! Add stripes, swirls and stars. After painting, let your pots fully dry for about an hour before planting! Sitting the pots out in the sun will help speed up the process too.
After letting the pots dry add in some of your favorite plants. Of course I found this project as just an excuse to buy more cacti for my collection. If you live near Orlando, Florida be sure to check out my two favorite cacti places; The Florida Cactus Farm & Lukas Butterfly and Nursery 🌵 > I’m not even sponsored by these places, I actually just live at them (but for real….I have a cacti PROBLEM).
Thank you all for reading! I would love to see how your pots came out in the photos below! Don’t forget to pin this post for later and follow us on Pinterest to see all of tutorials 😘😘 Thank you!
