DIY Painted Pots

I love this DIY project today because it’s easy and it’s budget-friendly. You can also customize it to match your style and taste, in addition to the colors of your wedding. And best of all, the finished product can be a centerpiece, decorate your venue or be a gift to your friends and family who helped you make your wedding so great.

You’ll need:

Terra cotta pots (choose your size based on what you want to put in them)

Acrylic paint

Foam paintbrushes

Pattern tape (like skinny masking tape, available at the craft store)

Glossy finish lacquer

DIY Wedding Projects

1. Paint a base layer on your pots. Let dry completely.

2. Make a pattern with your pattern tape. Go nuts! Make it your own.

3. Paint another color on top of your pattern tape as you wish. Have fun with it!

4. Remove the tape while second coat is still tacky. Let dry, then coat with clear glossy lacquer to protect the surface.

    Can I just ask what colours you used in the Martha Stewart paint’s?

    These planters turned out great! I love the gray and white. Just included them in a round-up of terra cotta planter pot makeovers :)
