DIY Anthropologie Inspired Painted Terra Cotta Pots

I always look online at Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters and just die over how cute everything is! But why does everything there have to be expensive… Anyways, one day I will be able to deck myself and my space in all things Anthro, but for now, I’m just using them as a little inspiration for some DIY succulent planters!

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Painted Terra Cotta Pots

Instructions

  1. Clean your pots with water. One of my pots had previously been used, so I need to empty it out to make it easier to paint.
  2. With your hot glue gun, glue your design to your pots. For one I did stripes and the other I did polka dots.
  3. Paint over the design with the acrylic paint. If you’re using two different colors, do the lighter one first. The white paint I used required more than one coat, especially over the hot glue.
  4. Wait to dry and then plant your plants in them!

So there’s my super easy DIY project. I really like upcycling old planters and making them look new and pretty again, this picture was my inspiration if you want to reference that. Now I just need to get some more plants to put in these. I was trying to propagate some of my succulents, but so far none of them have stayed alive long enough to grow into a big plant.

Let me know what kinds of plants I should get, or if you’re going to paint some of your own pots for your plants!
