Spring is one of my favorite times of the year! Decorating with bright colors, the sunshine, planting flowers, cleaning and updating my home… The list goes on and so do the price tags!
I was a little shocked when I saw how much nice flower pots cost! I decided to go with the classic terra cotta pots and get creative with what I already had at home!
And you know what?
I love my flower pots!!! Even more than the pricey ones I debated on at the store. They are unique and give our house just a little more touch of home!
- Terra Cotta Pots and Saucers (These come in about 3 different sizes.)
- Outdoor Paints and paintbrushes
- Flowers or herbs
- Any additional decorations (Number stickers, twine, ribbon)
Total cost per flower pot = $2.64
Ideas for Inspiration:
- Chalkboard paint
- Rustic white washed paint
- Bright color and gold stripes
- Polka dots
- House number
- Last name initial
- Red, white, and blue
- Wrap pots with rope
- Tie twine around the top
The ideas are really endless! Here’s what I came up with!
Chalkboard Painted Herb Pots
I free-handed an oval with chalkboard paint, and planted my herbs in the pots. Just write what herb you’ve got growing with chalk! Easy!
*Obviously, this will wash when it rains, so just keep that in mind if you choose this design. I started with actual plants, not seeds, so I knew what I was growing and can easily re-write after it rains.
Rustic White Washed with Rope
I just roughly painted a terra cotta pot with white paint, and hot glued a string of rope around the top. I planted a sweet, little succulent in this one and it’s sitting on our coffee table.
I printed a vinyl with my Cricut machine, but this could be easily done with paint or scrapbook stickers.
I love how my painted terra cotta pots turned out! They really make our house feel homey and unique! I may end up making some more!!
If you need a spring update, try these simple terra cotta painted pots. Get creative with what you have at home and sit back and enjoy the beautiful view of spring and fresh flowers & plants!
