Plant pots can be stupidly expensive for the nicey nice ones, and despite hunting around the tip pretty much every week, I hadn't found any liked. So I thought I'd buy some cheap terracotta pots and jazz them up myself.
You will need:
Terracotta pots (frost proof), I chose a variety of sizes ranging from 50p-£1.50 in Wilkinsons and Poundland
Emulsion tester pots
1. Clean up the pots remove any stickers etc.
2. Use the masking tape to create the desired patterns that you want to achieve on the pot. If you want smooth lines & a wavey effect I recommend using an elastic band for this. I didn't and ended up with some rough edges.
3. Paint, paint, paint. I did 3 coats to get a smooth, thick finish.
4. Leave to dry.
It's as simple as that!! I'm intending to get a couple more and paint them in a few more colours. I spent less than £10 for the pots and materials, and ended up with 8 pretty pots that I'm looking forward to fill.
It's nice to have actually made something that I've seen on Pinterest too.
