How to Make Painted Plant Pots

How to Make Painted Pots #Painting #upcycling

If you’re anything like me and like being out and about in the garden you’ve probably got a lot of plant pots stored in the shed waiting to be used.

Why not upcycle some of yours pots and turn them into great gifts for family members, or just to have dotted around the house, and then pot with your favourites herbs and flowers. You don’t have to even use them as plant pots, they make great stationary pots or utensils (depending in the height of your pot).

Top Tip!

Make sure your pots have been brushed clean before painting.

Suitable for : Beginner

Time to allow : One hour plus drying time

How to Make
  1. Paint the base and rim of the pot with two coats of acrylic paint in contrasting pastel colours, leaving to dry between each coat.
  2. Paint spot or flower designs around the circumference of the pot using a cotton bud and leave to dry.
