4 Easy Ways to Dress Up a Terra Cotta Pot

by BrightNest
A traditional terra cotta flowerpot isn't exactly an eyesore, but we think leaving it in its original state squanders some serious design potential! That's right, a terra cotta pot can be as pretty as the flowers it holds. Whether your decor style skews modern or antique chic, these inexpensive gardening staples are basically a blank canvas of opportunity! Here are four easy ways to pump up your terra cotta flowerpots: http://bit.ly/TerraCottaDIYProject
1. Gold-dipped.

Give your planters the Midas touch by dipping the bottom half in gold paint. Spray with a clear acrylic sealant and let them dry overnight before you start planting.
2. Fabric.

We want to let you in on a little designer secret: that scrap fabric you have stuffed into your craft drawer has a lot of potential. To give a terra cotta planter a pattern, spray an even coat of adhesive on the outside of the pot. Then, quickly and carefully apply your fabric to the pot. Smooth out any edges with a plastic knife and trim any excess fabric with a pair of scissors. That's it!
