French Inspired Terra Cotta Flower Pots!

This is a super easy way to add a pretty grapic to your terra cotta flower pots! Great for indoor use and the perfect little gift for someone special~
I used my DIY Aged Terra Cotta Pots, the tutorial for aging terra cotta is on the blog & on a post here on Hometalk!
Print your graphic (got mine from Graphics Fairy!) Cut close to print lines and apply Mod Podge to the printed side of the graphic~
rub graphic onto terra cotta ...Let dry over night!
Using a spray bottle or very wet paper towel wet the graphic and peel & rub the paper off. Be careful and go slow, and re-wet the paper if necessary~
Then you can spray them with a matte top coat to seal, or use them just like they are. They wouldn't be good for out doors but for inside they're perfect! xo

    Great idea but it looks like a label glued to a pot. How do you get rid of the obvious border and make it look like it was printed or painted?

      Try printing it on white tissue paper. Tape tissue paper to card stock and run it through your printer. The edges practically disappear.

    Can I paint a pot and then make a transfer over the paint???

      Yes, I’m sure you can. I do these transfers on wooden boxes that I paint first. I also make sure to user a laser printer and put the object in a cold oven, heat to 175 and let it cool down in oven to help set the image. For words, be sure to reverse the image.
