Fast, Easy, DIY Antiquing Terracotta Pots

2 Materials
10 Minutes

Spring to me is all about flowers, greenery, and pots. I love terracotta pots!!! I do love how they look when they have been painted and have good age to them. I have been faux aging my terracotta pots for some time now and thought I would share this super easy way to do it!

My favorite place to get the pots are at Walmart or Michael’s.


· Any kind of paint brush works

· White acrylic paint

· Paper towel

· Cup of water

· Newspaper of a large box to paint on

Below is my video

Find a container for your paint. I just used some old cardboard.

Add paint to your container

Have a cup of water for your brush.

To get the effect I did, you need to dip your brush into water, then into paint, then into the water again before you paint the pot.

Wipe dry with a towel

All done!
