St Patrick's Day Flower Pots



 2104 St Patricks Flower Pots

Saw this cute idea for Spring & St. Patrick's Day all rolled into one and had to share. 


Start with a clay flowerpot.  We sell terracotta pots from Italy which means you are starting with a compact, smooth clay pot that is known in the pottery industry as the best clay pots available anywhere.  Each pot is formed and then fired in a gas kiln so they are virtually identical. Of course they start with the finest clay material.

Find a green color of acrylic paint. Here you see two different shades which make a great contrast and interest.  Spray or paint the pots, let them dry completely.  Line the rim around the opening of the pot with a ribbon and glue or tape together.  Then drop a plant of your choice inside.  You don't even need to plant directly into the pottery.  So, when the plant looks a bit worn you can just pop it out and put in another kind.  Super Easy!  

These make wonderful gifts for family, friends, neighbors or co-workers.  And, you get to have some fun making them.  It's a win - win situation.  Get your Italian Clay Pots right here at Arizona Pottery. Click here.
