Painted Clay Pots

Most of us have a clay pot sitting around the house.  Lately, I have been in love with adding a lot of color to our outdoor decor.  I thought I would add a splash of color to our pots.





I just put a ring of painters tape on the bottom of the pot below the lip.


I then spray the top rim of the pot with a little leftover spray paint that I had from my Tricycle Project and other little things I had painted around the house.  I coated it two times and then let it dry over night, so it was no longer tacky.  I then did the opposite and covered the top rim with painters tape  and then sprayed it with an opposite color.  I removed the tape and let it dry over night again before I planted my herbs.   This is what I ended up with. 





I love my new little pots.  I planted a few herbs in them. 

           Rosemary                                          Orange Mint                     Spicy Globe Basil


My favorite is the Lemon Lime Pot.  They are such a nice addition to our backyard.

    1. Thanks, Alana!
      So much less expensive than buying them already decorated.

  2. Cute pots! I've been wanting to get myself some more pots for the garden, but they are so expensive! You've totally inspired me to try and find cheap clay pots and pretty them up! Will any spray paint work for this or do I need special paint?

    1. Izzy,
      Pretty pots are sooo expensive. I think the three of them cost me $6.00. I just used some leftover Valspar spray paint that I had in Satin and in Gloss. I am sure that you could use any kind. Hope that helps! I would love to see what you come up with.
