Refreshed Garden Terracotta Critters


We all have Gnomes, ducks, fairies or in my case turtles decorating our gardens or somewhere in a corner around our house. I decided to give them a makeover bringing spring to my indoors and front porch. A little bit of white primer to prepare the surface for painting, acrylic paints and whatever your imagination comes up with will give these critters a whole new look. Mine will go out on my covered porch so I'm not worried about April showers, but if yours are going to be out in the elements, use more glass beads, plastic flowers or just plain paint!
