DIY Tribal Painted Flower Pots

Here is a easy, 20 mins or less, DIY pottery project.  When Laurie Cosgrove [lauriecosgrove.com] for full instructions, was wanting something fast and simple she made these wonderful and colorful flowerpots painted with a tribal feel to them. Perfect for planting in come next Spring.

Start with smooth terracotta flowerpots.  Our's are perfect because they are imported from Italy and have velvety smooth sides. Not like Chinese or Mexican pottery which is very porous.  Cover the flowerpots with chalkboard paint from Home Depot.

Use colorful paint to trim the rim of the flowerpots and the saucers that fit under them.  Go to Pinterest to find patterns you like and can be inspired by.  Detail on with small brushes or as she likes to use, a sponge brush.  Either way decorating the flowerpot should be fun and creative.  

Have a go and share with us how it went!

Easter Baskets Clay Pots

Simple, Cute Craft Idea for Easter Basket or Decoration!
 
We see many craft ideas using clay flowerpots all over the web. But, we were drawn to this idea for its simplicity and ease.  We thought these clay pots would not only make a cheery Easter decoration but how about a homemade Easter Basket for young or old.

Start with our Italian Terracotta Flower Pots which are the most compact, smooth clay being manufactured today.  Purchase some pastel acrylic paint and paint the pots in a rainbow, solid or anyway you choose to decorate them.  Fill with shredded colorful paper available from most craft stores and fill with Easter goodies or treat. How much more simple does it get and look how cute it turns out.

Have them hide around your home for the kids to find Easter morning, give to a office coworker or friendly neighbor.  Include a seed packet so they can use the decorated clay pot to grow a plant with Spring right around the corner.

We also like the idea of having one already painted, then setting up a craft table for the grandkids on Easter morning while the adults prepare Easter Supper.  So many fun ideas from a few clay pots and paint.  Have fun!

DIY craft idea using flowerpots Christmas Craft

We saw this cute idea and wanted to share it with our flowerpot craft group this time of year.  It's a fun and decorative way to display your potted poinsettia plants available at most garden centers. And, if you have some little ones hanging around the house this will surly make them smile.
 
Supplies: 
2 terracotta flower pots with saucers
Red & Black Patio Paint from DecoArt
Sponge Brushes
1.5" Black Ribbon
Gold glittery self adhesive foam sheet
White batting
Glue Gun
Scissors
Make this DIY Craft for Christmas using flowerpots

Directions
:

Paint the terracotta flower pots red and the saucers black, let dry.
Cut 1" strip of white batting and glue to the bottom of each pot.  You can substitute cotton balls or pom poms if necessary.
Glue the length of ribbon that fits all the way around the two pots when next to each other, adding an extra 8" of overlap.  Cut a square shape from the gold glitter foam sheet, with a smaller square in the center for the belt buckle.  Attach to the front.


Use outdoors for holiday decor, or inside as a centerpiece. Either way these are wonderful.
