Stunning DIY Terra Cotta Planters

I jazzed up my Terra Cotta pots, to give them a rustic feel. This DIY is really simple to do and the outcome is stunning! Use for indoors and outdoors.


Get an idea of where you want to place the stencil. Slowly peel from plastic backing and attach to the pot. Pat down every nook and cranny of the stencil. Then paint!

Find the side that you like the least and start gluing your twine at the top rim. Wrap all the way around continuing to glue at the same spot but lower. Keep on doing this until you reach the bottom. Cut with scissors and glue the end to the pot.

Plant succulents, flowers, herbs, or anything else. Head over to my blog for more details and pictures!

    Love the look too. Thank you for the idea. Just one question: what brand of gold paint did you use?
