So, I love clay pots. Even in their plain color, I think they are lovely to have around the home. But with Spring & Summer colors everywhere we go now, I felt inspired to bring some colors into our little succulent garden we are working on. I also am in the middle of getting an herb garden going but more on that and those pots later ;)…Here are some the recent pots I worked on this past weekend and I’ll have more ideas coming soon!
- Paint Brushes
- Clay Pots
- Plants of Choice
1. Summer Themed Pots
•This was so simple..make sure pots are nice and clean.
•Then do a few layers of your desired colors using medium sized paint brush for the base of pot and a smaller size brush for the rim.
•You can tape off the sections to get very precise lines but I feel like they came out pretty without it still..
• I used gold for the rim of the pot & a themed color scheme for the base, then used the same color scheme on the rim and base of the plate too.
•I chose colors I already had on hand but felt like they came out pretty trendy with a lot of stuff I am seeing now! So choose whatever color scheme speaks to you!
2. Farmhouse Style
•Now I am not a precise person…I literally slapped some white acrylic paint onto the pot with a brush in various spots.
•Then I took an old rag and smeared the color around to get the messy but lovely look. Do this for the pot and the plate.
•Then for the little chalkboard pot I just used a paint brush and completely covered it in the chalk paint.
•Chalk paint comes in various colors..but I had black on hand and had messed this pot up a bit so it turned into a chalkboard one to save its life….
•It also has some cute rub on transfer prints of veggies but pictures don’t really do justice at all!
• You can label a chalk painted pot with whatever herb or plant you decide to put inside. I can never write well with chalk..but you get the idea lol
These were not all the pots I did, so stayed tuned for more ideas later babes! Hope you enjoyed & let me know what you think!
