I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! If you look out the window here today, you would think it was April 1st instead of April 18th because it looks like we got an April Fool’s joke played on us outside! We have snow! Ok, yes, snow is pretty and all that, but we are ready for Spring now! 😉 So let’s do a cute Spring project painting little clay pots and pretend we don’t see the snow.
I found a pack of 3 small clay pots at the Dollar Tree store and decided they would be cute painted for Spring with some succulents planted in them. So go grab some little pots, some paint, sponge brushes and some newspaper to protect your surfaces.
I chose yellow, pink and blue for the main colors for my pots.
I painted the outside of the pots plus I painted part of the way down inside the pot.
Using the eraser end of a pencil, I painted dots on the outside of each pot in contrasting colors.
I painted 1 coat on 2 of my pots but I painted a second coat on the yellow pot. I think I didn’t need to do that.
A word of caution – allow your pots plenty of drying time before adding plants! I didn’t let my yellow pot (that had 2 coats of paint) dry long enough before I added my succulent and the paint bubbled up because of the moisture in the dirt.
Check your local Lowe’s or Home Depot stores or a greenhouse for some little plants to add to your beautiful little pots.
And there you have it! Bright and colorful painted pots to cheer you or someone else up! Spring is just around the corner! 🙂
