Once you have chosen your design, draw it or trace it on the outside surface of the terra cotta pot.

NOTE:  the bottom of the flower pot is now the top.

Step 3: Cut 'n Grind

Now using the tile cutting bit and your dremel, start the cut by grinding into the pot at a 45ish degree angle, once you have cut through the wall of the pot, continue on cutting out your design, keeping the dremel at a 90 degree angle.

Once your pattern is all cut out, then use the grinding stone bit to smooth the edges of your cuts.

Step 4: Oooooo ahhhhh

Looks like it creates nice ambiance.

Is it just me, or does the pattern resemble a stormtrooper helmet?
