Color Blocked Terracotta Planter

Hello everyone! I really hoped you enjoyed my last post about the gold-rimmed terracotta planter DIY. You can find that here if you haven’t gotten to view it yet.

This DIY builds upon the gold-rimmed terracotta planter I mentioned above.
For those of you who cannot find or do not have the brown terracotta pots where you are, this is a fix for that not so pleasant orangey terracotta color. Combining two really chic trends right now: gold rim and color blocking!
This DIY can also be used on other planters that you find plain, boring, or ugly.

Let’s begin!

What you need: 
– Terracotta Planter
– Acrylic Paint
– Sealer (optional)

Steps:
1. Prep your pot by washing and drying it.
2. Prep your work area to prevent paint from getting on anything of value.
3. Paint you planter! I started with the larger end and then did the rim last.
4. Seal and protect. (optional) Remember to do this part outside or in a well ventilated area.

This is what you should have!

I am super happy with how this turned out! At first I though this was going to be a bust, but once it was done it grew on me and now it is honestly one of my favorite and most simple DIY’s!

This is wonderful to turn an ugly or plain planter into something stylish and chic that you will want to look at and plant something in!

Get out there and get painting!
Happy crafting!
