Terra Cotta Welcome Sign

2 Materials
20 Minutes

We had a big terra cotta plant saucer that we used as a platter! Well since it broke, we decided to transform it and give it new life!!

Here is a dreamy platter that we made from a terra cotta plant saucer… It broke, yep our big awesome terra cotta saucer broke while in transport. What to do now??

Time to make lemonade from your lemons and get to zestin’

So grab your smashed up plant saucer….

Throw the random pieces into the bottom of a another pot to help with soil drainage when you plant next…

Next grab a Sharpie paint pen…

And let the free styling begin! If you aren’t too skilled with the strokes you can always pencil/chalk out your design and words before.

Dig your saucer into the soil a bit and there you have it!! You can definitely add some color to the sign with your paint pens and even planting bed!!

You’re “welcome!”

    Most of these are a little silly. But thanks i’d Like to know more about what or how to paint a large pot.
