Painted Terra-cotta Pots

This year my outdoor container garden didn’t get up and running, mainly because the weather had been so unpredictable. I do however, have fresh herbs growing on the windowsill and they are convenient for a little snip when I’m making dinner.

Right now I am growing Rosemary and Lemon Thyme which are prefect accompaniments to meats and veggies. I love to roast my veggies and these herbs add a nice fresh taste.

I picked up a few terra-cotta pots and I wanted to add a little pop to them. I saw some sample size bottles of chalk paint in a couple of my favorite colors (pink and green) and decided they would add a pretty touch.

This is another quick step project that doesn’t consume a lot of time. You can make as many or as few pots as you need. They also, make perfect party favors at a summer bash or garden party.

Materials:

  • Terra-cotta pots
  • Rubber bands
  • Chalk paint (or patio paint if keeping pots outside)
  • Foam paint brush

Directions:

1. Wrap rubber band around each pot- I placed my around the middle.

2. Apply, two coats of paint. (Allow paint to dry completely between coats.)

3. Once dry, remove rubber bands.

Put your favorite plant or herb in the pot and enjoy! These pots are cute and add a nice two-tone contrast. These would also be beautiful as a centerpiece at an outdoor gathering. I really think it’s awesome when something simple elevates the everyday.

Thanks for reading! xo
