Pretty Pretty Flower Pot

What you need:IMG_6452

  • Terra-cotta flower pot
  • Sandpaper
  • Polyurethane
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paint brushes or sponges
Note: This is a perfect summer craft to do outside while you’re grilling. It’s best to let the acrylic dry overnight before applying the polyurethane.  Make it a two Thursdays project!

What to do:

Seal the inside of your terra-cotta flower pot with 2 to 3 coats of polyurethane and let dry completely. Clean the outside of the pot, sanding away any rough spots so you have a smooth surface for painting. Using a paintbrush or a sponge, apply a base coat of acrylic paint to the outside of the pot. Using white or a light color is your best bet so you can decorate over it with bright colors. Once the base coat has dried, decorate the outside of the flower pot to your desire. Stripes and polka dots are particularly striking. Let the paint dry completely. Seal the outside of the flower pot with at least 2 coats of polyurethane.
