I love Aged Terra Cotta Pots and I recently saw a wreath made using old terra cotta pots. Although I have a large collection of terra cotta pots, I didn’t have the required amount to make a wreath. So here’s what I did. Today I’m sharing how to make a Terra Cotta Pot Spring Wreath using new pots that are aged using a simple technique. This is an easy DIY step by step tutorial.
Terra Cotta Pot Spring Wreath – Supplies
First let’s gather our supplies.
- Grapevine Wreath – Size will depend on where you plan to use it. My wreath is 24″ in diameter.
- Terra Cotta Pots – Small and Medium sized
- White Chalk Paint
- Black Chalk Paint
- Jute Twine
- Faux Flowers & Greenery of your choice
- Spanish Moss
- Hot Glue
I found my pots at the Dollar Tree. The smallest size came three to a package and purchased 9 packages. I used 17 of the small pots so I estimated pretty close to the correct amount. The medium size came two to a package and I used 12 pots or 6 packages. The number you will need to complete the project will depend on the size of your grapevine wreath.
Aging the Terra Cotta Pots
In order to age the terra cotta pots, you only need white and black paint. I used chalk paint because it leaves a mat finish which appears more naturally aged.
Begin with the black paint and just randomly swipe the paint onto the pots.
