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!!

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!!

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