Terra Cotta/Chalkboard Flower pots

Terracotta flower pots are very inexpensive, so in my opinion, they are a great crafting material. In this tutorial I simply add some chalkboard paint and color craft paint to them to make little organizing pots. But they would be great for planting too.

 

 

Gather Supplies

  • Paint brushes or Foam brushes
  • Painters Tape
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Craft Paint
  • TerraCotta Pots (I used the 4″ ones)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1

Using the painter’s tape, mark off the places that you do not want chalkboard paint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2

Using a brush or foam brush paint the Terracotta pots with your chalkboard paint. May take more than one coat of paint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3

Allow the chalkboard paint to fully dry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4

Once the paint dries, remove the tape and mark off where you will be applying your color craft paint.

Step 5

Apply the color craft paint where desired! Then allow it to dry.
